The gender pay gap in Iceland narrowed by 2% between 2008 and 2016. The numbers come from a report released today by Statistics Iceland. RÚV reported first.

The analysis was carried out by Statistics Iceland in collaboration with a task force on equal pay appointed by the government and social partners. It shows the adjusted gender pay gap measured 6.6% in 2008 but decreased to 4.5% in 2016.

The analysis is based on Statistics Iceland’s data on wages and demographic data comprising about 615,000 observations for individuals aged 18 to 67.
