A Study of the Disparity in Wages and Benefits Between Men and Women in Wyoming (2003). Anne M. Alexander, Catherine R. Connolly, Martin M. Greller, and John H. Jackson. University of Wyoming.

Excerpt from executive summary:

This research was conducted during late 2002 and early 2003, in response to the Legislature’s request to study wage disparity between men and women in Wyoming.

Women earn less on average than men: globally, nationally, regionally, and in Wyoming. Wyoming’s gap in wages between the genders is the highest in the region, in part because Wyoming men make more than the regional average and Wyoming women make less.
