One of the questions we’ve been asked frequently is “What have you found in your research so far?”. With 80+ workforce data points currently being collected, there is an almost infinite number of connections we can make between multiple data points, particularly where it concerns mapping job titles and location to years of experience and gender.
Here’s a few things we’ve learned in our surveying so far:
- 59.1% of survey respondents are men, with the remaining 40.9% are women. This is somewhat surprising, as I had assumed the gender divide was far wider than 20 percentage points. In this case, I’m happy my initial assumptions were incorrect.
- Unfortunately, only 1.4% of women identified as business partner or company owners.
- The most popular job title among women: Digital Strategist. For men? Web/application developer.
- 30.6% of women made on average between $40,000 – $59,999 per year, while only 23.7% of men reported earning the same amount per year.
- Men and women are reporting at near parity when it comes to receives pay raises between 1 and 10% (62.9% for men versus 60.7% for women). What we found really interesting is that women earned more pay raises than men where the pay raise was 21% and higher. In fact, they outpaced men by as much 6%. This trend was relatively consistent and eventually reached parity as women earned pay raises greater than 49%.
This is but a sample of our findings thus far.
With these findings in mind, we’re launching a new blog post series entitled Friday Findings. Our goal with this weekly series is to compare and visualize one or more of our findings by way of an infographic or other visual element.
We’ve got an infographic in mind for this Friday’s post, but we want to hear from you. What do you want to see in terms of visualized findings? Which data points are you interested in learning more about?
