Welcome to OFCCP's Earnings Disparity Data site, which measures earnings disparities by sex, race and ethnicity at the national and state levels. By "disparity" we mean an unequal distribution of earnings across the various participants in an economy by sex, race, or ethnicity.

To ascertain where disparities exist, we used three-year estimates from the Current Population Survey (CPS). The CPS is sponsored jointly by the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). It is the primary source of labor force statistics for the population of the United States.

The information provides workers, civil rights groups, worker advocates, contractors, and researchers with data to identify compensation trends, promote contractor compliance, and empower workers and job seekers to advocate for equal pay.
