The city of Ashland is the only city in Grafton County. It is a rural city located in central New Hampshire. While many may refer to Ashland as a city, it actually is a census designated place (CDP).

Ashland, NH is a Place (Census Designated):
Often referred to as cities, places can be categorized as Census Designated Places (CDP) or legal entities. The places that are legal entities provide governmental functions.

Neither cross state lines, but may extend across county lines. A CDP may not extend into a legal entity.

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 Ashland, NH generally make around 6259% 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 37% of women ages 16+ that did not have earnings were not included in the calculation.
