Are the statistics underlying the gender pay gap sound and accurate?

Unchallenged

Economists, sociologists, major publications and NGOs—all of whom conduct research or use data—support use of gender pay gap statistics.

In the UK, numerous reputable organisations and institutions largely tend to support the use of statistics that show to varying degrees that there is a gap in earnings between women and men, either harvesting such data themselves or using that which is publicly available.

Data has limitations—but these affect the resolution of our picture of the problem, not debates about whether the picture exists.

Economists cite limitations in the data, for example: not having data that compares one firm with another and not having data that follows one individual over the course of their lifetime.

Online sources that are sceptical of the gender pay gap contain hyperlinks (purportedly to data) which don’t work.

Online sources that play down the gap may not be scrupulous. Such sources refer to external links to strengthen points, but some of these links lead to 404 errors. In effect, the validity of the data is questioned without being backed up.

Rightwing thinktank that publishes content disputing accuracy of gender gap statistics has been under investigation for its activities.

The Institute of Economic Affairs was investigated over a leaked video which shows director speaking of facilitating introductions between US donors and UK government ministers and also suggesting donors can help shape IEA's research. IEA's content should be read with caution.
