The unadjusted gender pay gap, as measured by Eurostat, shows the difference between the average gross hourly earnings of men and women. The indicator has been calculated for companies with 10 or more employees.

Globally, in 2020, women’s gross hourly earnings were on average 13% below those of men in the EU. This is an improvement from 2012, when the difference was as much as 16.4%.

The smallest pay gaps were measured in Luxembourg (0.7%), Romania (2.4%) and Slovenia (3.1%).
