Using large databases from the U.S. Census Bureau, WCW economist Sari Pekkala Kerr, Ph.D., and her colleagues found "the earnings gap between college-educated men and women at the start of their careers is small, but by the time these individuals reach their career peak the gender pay gap is very large." In the Harvard Business Review, Kerr and her co-authors discuss how they set up their study and how they interpreted their findings.
