The situation in your country RSS

The European gender pay gap represents an average of 16.4 % across all EU countries (Eurostat: 2010 Provisional). However, there are a number of disparities between EU countries.

The indicators on each country page provide contextual data which allows for a more comprehensive reading of the gender pay gap at national level. These latest figures trace the various stages in our lives from education to work, and the impact that family responsibilities have on employment, to taking on leadership roles through to retirement. The data reveals a different picture throughout the EU countries.

A list of organisations working in the field of equality in each country is also provided. These organisations have agreed to help spread the Gender Pay Gap campaign's key messages and materials to their members and contacts in all 27 EU countries. They include:

  • decision-makers at national, regional and local level;
  • equality bodies;
  • social partners;
  • non-governmental organisations (NGOs);
  • recruitment agencies;
  • academics and experts working on the gender pay gap and equality issues.
