This project investigates the annual salaries of women who are employed as health care professionals. The secondary data for this research is drawn from the Current Population Survey (CPS) Annual Social & Economic Supplement (ASEC). The final sample size was 16,884. OLS Regression was used to test the hypotheses proposed in this study. The findings indicate that net of other factors, minority women who work in health care occupations earn less annually than their white counterparts, with the exception of Asians.en_US
