Statistics Bleg

I can never find my way around the US Census site.

What I\’m looking for is median male full time hourly wages, median female full time hourly wages and ditto for both genders part time.

Anyone know where they might be?

  1. I don’t have time to come up with a deep link but I’m pretty sure the Bureau of Labor Statistics (www.bls.gov) is a better bet for this sort of thing.

  2. If you say “gender” you can’t logically say “both”. To go with “both” you must surely use “sexes”.

  3. If you are looking for US national data, to my knowledge, the BLS Current Population Survey and other surveys have tables with hourly data for part time and full time but these tables do not separate by gender, and they have male-female weekly comparisons but these are on a weekly, not hourly basis. There are tables that compare male-female hourly rates, but those are only for workers who are paid on an hourly basis and not all workers. Individual states may have their own data available, though. However, I would not be surprised if someone over at either Cato or The Independent Women’s Forum had some data on the topic.
