Overall, at Inland Revenue the average pay of men/tāne is higher than that of women/wāhine across all ethnicities, except European women.
This is also reflected in the respective pay gaps for other groups, with Pasifika women having the largest average pay gap, followed closely by Middle Eastern, Latin American, and African people (MELAA), Māori and Asian women.
The data we currently have relating to our people with disabilities and our Rainbow community is limited. We will consider how we can continue to improve this data over the next 12 months.
Pay gaps are calculated by comparing the average salaries of people identifying with a group and the average salaries of everyone else who has declared a gender or an ethnicity.
Average pay and pay gaps, however, do not explain the full story. The information and the graphs below help provide a more in depth understanding of what is driving Inland Revenue’s pay gaps.
