In 2022, men's nominal wages increased by 1.1% on average, while women's wages rose less sharply at +0.8%.
Among the economic sectors with the greatest nominal wage increases were "financial services, activities auxiliary to banking and insurance" for men (+2.2%) and "provision of professional, scientific and technical activities" for women (+1.7%).
The more sustained increase in the women's wage index in comparison with that of men continues a long-term trend. Over time, women's lower wages have therefore drawn closer to those of men (gap of -23.7% in 1994 compared with -10.8% in 2020 (median wage). The gender pay gap still continues to exist today, particularly in terms of the hierarchical position held.
