New Commerce Department Report Finds Greater Wage Parity, Premium for Women in STEM Jobs Submitted on August 3, 2011 - 11:25am Categories: News & Events Press Releases WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Commerce Department’s Economics and Statistics Administration (ESA) today issued the second in a series of reports on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) jobs and higher education. As expected, the report, Women in STEM: A Gender Gap to Innovation, finds there are fewer women than men in STEM jobs and attaining degrees in STEM fields. But interestingly, that’s true despite the fact that the wage premium for women in STEM jobs is higher than that for men and that there’s greater income parity between genders in STEM fields than there is in the employment market as a whole.
