Pay Gap? Men Earn 85% of Women?

In 2001, comparing men and women who never married, never had a child, worked full time, and were college educated, women earned 117% of what men earned. That is, after controlling for marital status, having children, hours worked and education, men earned 85% of what women earned.

The graph above is from
Warren Farrell's website, he is the author of the book "WHY MEN EARN MORE: The Startling Truth Behind the Pay Gap and What Women Can Do About It."
