EEOC Releases Pay Data Dashboard

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) made available on March 12, 2024, a data dashboard featuring the 2017 and 2018 EEO-1 Component 2 pay data. To protect employer and employee confidentiality, EEOC has aggregated the data. The dashboard contains aggregated employer-level workforce demographic and pay data reported by pay band. Users of the dashboard may view aggregated information by industry, job category, and core-based statistical areas (CBSA) or state.

It appears that any further consideration of resurrecting the Component 2 pay data collection has been further delayed; however, the EEOC did announce a “Data Dashboard” based on the Component 2 data collection for reporting years 2017-2018 (required in 2019), which the EEOC reflects sex and race disparities across certain industries, job positions and geographic areas. This “Dashboard” is extensive and should be given a look.

The gender disparity is most egregious at the top of the pay scale, where men constitute a whopping three-quarters of individuals earning over $208,000. Even within the second highest pay bracket, with salaries between $163,000 and $207,000, a striking 71% of the earners are men. Conversely, women are the majority on the lower end, making up 59% of those with incomes below $19,000.
