Abstract

To determine the effect of gender on salaries at the University of Florida, this study analyzed over 5,000 individual salaries for academic and non-academic staff at the University of Florida. Gender and Job Title were used as factors for an ANOVA model. The ANOVA model suggested that Gender alone is an insignificant predictor of salary amount, but the model also showed significant interaction between Gender and Job Title. Additionally, pairwise comparisons suggest that within each academic job level, males are paid more than females. A possible explanation for this phenomenon is discussed.

Keywords: gender wage gap, wage gap, salaries
