wage disparity by sex by city
One occasionally hears a statistic that women make 3/4 to 4/5 as much money as men do, but for a long time it's been the case that single, childless women make an amount that is statistically indistinguishable from single, childless men in the same jobs. (This, of course, is based on averages. Individual variation is pervasive.) As of 2008, in large metropolitan areas, women on average appear to have been outearning men, though it isn't clear to me whether they took account of which jobs people were working in.
