Methodological note

The gender pay gap indicator is calculated on the basis of data from the INE's Wage structure survey. The pay gap between men and women is defined as the difference between the mean gross wage earned per hour by men and the mean gross wage earned per hour by women as a percentage of the mean gross wage earned per hour by men.

The target population of the study is all wage-earning employees in enterprises with 10 or more salaried employees without restrictions in terms of age or hours worked.

The sectors covered are all enterprises forming part of the industry, construction and service sectors, corresponding to sections C to K and M to O of the NACE Rev. 1.1.

The concept of wage-earning includes payments for extra hours but not extra payments.
