|Syracuse, NY Metro Area is a CBSA:|
Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) are categorized as metropolitan or micropolitan depending on size. The U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) defines each as a core with a substantial population, together with adjacent counties having a high degree of economic and social integration with that core. Because of these strong ties, it is convenient to get an overview of the primary cities along with the suburbs and rural areas where people may live in one area and work in another. They can, and often do, cross state lines. Adjacent CBSAs may be grouped to Combined Statistical Area (CSA).

Unadjusted Gender Pay GapPopulation Ages 16+ with Earnings
The unadjusted gender pay gap is the median indvidiual female earnings as a percentage of male earnings. In other words, women who work in Syracuse, NY Metro Area generally make around 7246% of what men do. Much of that difference is likely due to the number of hours worked (see the Full Time vs Part Time Work chart), occupations chosen (see the Employed by Occupation chart), education, and job experience. Adjusting for each of those factors to see what women with similar qualifications and jobs make compared to men is difficult, but the adjusted pay gap would be more likely to show the difference due to discrimination, difference in ability, or willingness to negotiate pay. For these reasons, differences in the gender pay shown here may be more likely to show the gender ideals in an area than the discriminatory practices. It is also worth noting that the 30% of men and 39% of women ages 16+ that did not have earnings were not included in the calculation.
