In 2020, the income of working women was on average 35% lower than that of their male colleagues due to part-time work. Three quarters of the women work part-time, only a quarter of the men work and the working week itself has fewer hours for women.

Age and family structure also play a role in income. The income difference is greatest between men and women who live with children, with working hours differing greatly when the children are still young. The gender income gap is generally narrowest among single people, as well as between young men and women living together without children.
