Women in the United States continue to be paid less than men overall. Nationally, in 2007, the median weekly earnings of female full-time wage and salary workers totaled $614, while it was $766 for males. a. Fill in the blank using the data: In 2007, male fulltime wage and salary workers earned ____more than female full-time wage and salary workers. 766-614/614 = 25% the phrase "more than female's" indicates that females are the reference value. Practice “than” problem Let’s say I make 150% more snickerdoodles on Monday than I make on Tuesday. If I make 3000 snickerdoodles on Monday, how many snickerdoodles do I make on Tuesday? Practice “increase / decrease” Problem On Wednesday I sell 1000 snickerdoodles. On Thursday I increase my number of snickerdoodles by 11%. How many have I sold on Thursday? 3b. What percent of male full-time wage and salary worker median weekly earnings does the female median weekly earnings represent? (This percentage is often called the women-to-men's earning ratio.) 614/766 = 80% the phrase “percent of male” indicates part / whole where men are the whole. Percentage “of” problem If I have 1000 snickerdoodles and 78 of the snickerdoodles have raisins. What percent of the snickerdoodles have raisins? Making graphs Open the file EarnedDegreesbyLevelandGender.xls which contains data on degrees conferred in 2006. a. Make a single graph to answer this question: In 2006 what percentage of all degree-earning males and what percentage of all degree-earning females earned a Doctoral degree? Don't worry about putting in the source. (4 points) b. Make a single graph to answer this question: In 2006 what percentage of all those receiving a Bachelor's degree were female and what percentage were male? Again, don't worry about adding the source.
