Men in Juneau Earn Significantly More than Women

Men in Juneau earn significantly more money than women, according to an economic indicator in a recent JEDC newsletter.

The Juneau Economic Development Council analyzed data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey that shows men in the Capital City make 42 percent more than their female counterparts.

Of course the problem isn’t unique to Juneau. Nationwide, the same survey indicates men earn 29 percent more than women. Statewide it’s 37 percent.

And as always, numbers only tell part of the story.
