Maryland women were paid 86 cents for every dollar paid to men in the state in 2011, according to an analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data by the National Partnership for Women & Families released Thursday.
Last year, the median earnings for women in Maryland who worked full-time was $48,748, according to the National Partnership's analysis. Men working full-time in the state had a median income of $56,708, the group said.
Women in every Maryland congressional district made less than their male counterparts, ranging from 99 cents on the dollar in District 4, in suburban Washington, to 76 cents on the dollar in District 1, on the Eastern Shore, the National Partnership found.
Nationally, women who worked full-time made 77 cents for every dollar earned by men, according to the Census data.
