Pay Equity – Occupational Wages by Gender in New Hampshire

The following tables have been prepared to comply with RSA 275:41-c Pay Equity Information, which requires that information about compensation differentials be made available to assist the public in understanding any differentials.


Occupation by Sex and Median Earnings in the Past 12 Months for Full-time, Year-round Civilian Employed Population 16 Years and Over in New Hampshire Excel file
Data for New Hampshire include estimates of the number of full-time, year-round employed individuals and median earnings for the past 12 months, by gender. Data are available for five high-level aggregations of major occupational groups, 17 major occupational groups, and 13 minor occupational groups. (Data for detailed occupations are not available.)

These data were extracted from the US Census Bureau’s 2022 American Community Survey 1-year estimates through data.census.gov, the Census Bureau's main data dissemination tool. These estimates are compiled every year and represent the experience of New Hampshire residents, not necessarily workers employed at jobs in New Hampshire.


New Hampshire Resident Average Hourly Earnings for Full-Time Employment by Gender and Occupational Group, 2014-2018 Excel file
Average hourly earnings for New Hampshire residents who are employed full-time are available by gender and 22 major occupational groups.

These estimates are based on unpublished Current Population Survey (CPS) data from the U. S. Census Bureau for the 60-month period from January 2014 through December 2018. The CPS is a monthly survey of households and, due to small sample size, data collected over an extended period is necessary to generate reliable estimates. The calculations displayed in this table are based on responses from individuals who were employed full-time with consistent hours of work. Further adjustments to estimated hourly earnings were made to remove the impact of overtime (more than 40 hours per week). Due to data limitations, information is only available by occupational groups and not detailed occupations. These estimates also represent the experience of New Hampshire residents, not necessarily workers employed at jobs in New Hampshire.


Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Tabulation of 2006-2010 Wages by Occupation

Data for New Hampshire is available for over 475 detailed occupations in 22 major occupational groups. The tables, in PDF format, are broken out by occupational group. For each occupation in a group, estimates of the total number of individuals, the number of males, and the number of females are displayed within various wage ranges. For convenience, there is also a table in Excel format that includes all occupations, exhibiting the same data breakout.

These data tables are extracted from the US Census Bureau’s 2006-2010 5-year American Community Survey through American Fact Finder. American Community Survey (ACS) EEO Tabulations are compiled every five years. The next set of EEO Tabulations of Wages by Occupation will be based on data from the 2014-2018 5-year ACS, and is expected to be available by 2021.

Data are tallied using Census occupation codes, which are 4-digit codes based on the 2010 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC). For information about the SOC, visit the US Bureau of Labor Statistics at www.bls.gov/soc/
