The data is collected from the Gender Development Index of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). This index compares the estimated gross national income of women and men. The countries are ranked in order of high to low in terms of mean years of schooling.
Concluding from the data represented, women in countries with higher education rates are more likely to earn more than women in countries with lower education rates, but women are still lagging behind their male counterparts in every country. The disparities of labor income are examined to show that women face disadvantage in the labour market. Women may receive equal education opportunities, but not necessarily will be treated equally in the workspace.
