dc.description.abstract The gender pay-gap in the government sector was investigated in this paper using the March 2006 Current Population Survey (CPS), Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASES). The data was analyzed using statistical techniques of a comparison of group means using a 2-tailed t-test, an analysis of variance, ordinary least squares (OLS) regression, and partitioning of variance. The main findings from this study are that individual’s income increases with age, education, working in occupations with high prestige, and working at the federal level. The findings also showed that women are sorted into lower paying occupations and earn less income than men. It was concluded that women are not financial equals to men at any level of the government: federal, state, or local. en
