pdfClosing the Earnings Gap in Pennsylvania 2006 hide

Equal pay for equal work is the law of the land but a new report, Closing the Earnings Gap in Pennsylvania 2006, reveals that a gender-based earnings gap still exists in the Commonwealth. In 2004, Pennsylvania’s female-to-male earnings ratio at the median for year-round, full-time workers 16 years and over was 74.5 percent, meaning that the median female worker earned roughly $0.75 for each dollar earned by the median male worker. The comparable statistic at the national level was 76.2 percent, indicating that Pennsylvania’s wage gap is slightly more pronounced than that of the nation as a whole.

pdfEstimates Indicate Number of School-Age Children in Poverty Again on the Rise hide

The Pennsylvania State Data Center at Penn State Harrisburg reports that the estimated number of Pennsylvania school-age children in families in poverty increased by 6,208 between 2002 and 2003. Data from the 2003 Small Area Income & Poverty Estimates (SAIPE), recently released by the U.S. Census Bureau, indicates that the estimated number of children ages 5 to 17 years old in poverty rose from 268,293 in 2002 to 274,501 in 2003, an increase of 2.3 percent. After declining in the late 1990s, the number and proportion of school-age children in poverty in Pennsylvania has consistently risen since 2000, signaling a trend that is not just tied to population increase. Impoverished school-age children now comprise 13.2 percent of the population ages 5-17, 2 percent more than in 2000, but still below the national average of 16.1 percent. Pennsylvania ranks 27th nationally (excluding Washington, D.C.) in order of the highest proportion of schoolage children in poverty. Overall, more than 420,000 children (ages 0-17) in the commonwealth live in poverty.
