In 2013, there were 145,439 full-time, year-round architects in the United States - roughly 31,000 of which were women. Making up just over 21 percent of the workforce, these women were on average paid just 80 percent the salaries of their male counterparts, according to the latest statistics released by the US Census Bureau. This means the median income for male architects was $14,877 more than female architects.
The disparity of female architects is a well-known fact. However, it’s interesting to see that disproportionate pay is prevalent and pervasive across other professions, such as in the financial and legal sectors. Check out the full statistics here.
