California, USA –  Lake Havasu City has been named as one of only 9 small cities in America where women earn more than men, according to a new data study documented by consumer finance startup,

The gender wage gap has been a huge topic of conversation in the US over the past few years, with statistics showing that women in the United States are paid 83 cents for every dollar paid to men.

However according to government statistics, there are 9 small cities* in America pioneering the way in women’s pay. Lake Havasu City ranked #6 with a wage gap of $232.

These 9 small cities are the only ones in the nation where women out-earn men. This is an incredible achievement and a step forward for pay equality.

The report analyzed Federal data to calculate the wage gap between the median earnings for males who are working full time, year round, and their female counterparts. These numbers were subtracted from one another to calculate a wage gap.

The data was compiled and analyzed by Pheabs, an independent consumer finance intermediary, which uses over 8,000 data points in a single loan application to connect borrowers with the best loan or source of finance for them.

Daniel Tannenbaum, Founder at Pheabs, commented: 

“Equal pay is incredibly important, as it can affect people’s ability to save money, support their families and keep up with the cost of living.

” We are delighted to see Lake Havasu City ranked as one of only 9 small cities in America where women earn more than men. We can only hope that other cities across the US follow suit to decrease the wage gap nationwide”
