Congratulations to Dr. Neeru Gupta and team for the publication of their open-access article: “When Pay Equity Policy Is not Enough: Persistence of the Gender Wage Gap Among Health, Education, and STEM Professionals in Canada, 2006-2016”.
The project examined gender, geographic, and earnings inequalities across 13 professions and found that these STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and computer science) fields had a tendency of being male-dominated and women earned 4.6-12.5% less than men.

The data analysis for this project was conducted at the New Brunswick Research Data Centre, one of the CRDCN’s many nationwide Research Data Centres, which provide researchers with access to datasets that are not readily available to the public.
