About The average EU woman
The average EU woman has a long way to go before achieving equal pay with the average man.
This emerges from an EU-wide survey by Eurostat, Statistical Office of the European Communities in Luxembourg.
The data – latest available on a harmonized basis² – suggest that on average women earn at least a quarter less than men. Calculations are based on full-time employees in all economic activities except agriculture, education, health, personal services and administration.
