Abstract

The Government Equalities Office commissioned this research to examine how the
gender pay gap (the gap between men and women’s average hourly earnings) has
changed in the past 10 years, and whether new methodological developments could
shed light on the direct and indirect drivers of the pay gap. This report uses the most recently available British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) data to examine the pay gap in 1995–97 and in 2004–07 using panel regression techniques, while also providing a decomposition of the gender pay gap over time.
