share of men's wages) by subtracting the gap from 100 percent.

\item{An average gender wage gap of 19.7 percent means that on average women are paid
19.7 percent less per hour than men.}
\item{A regression-based gender wage gap of 21.7 percent means that on average women
are paid 21.7 percent less per hour than men, all else held equal (controlling for
gender, race and ethnicity, education, experience, and geographic location).}
