The 2016 PW Publishing Industry Salary Survey
Despite lower salaries (possibly due to the younger age of female respondents and fewer women occupying higher-paying management positions), women continue to outnumber men in the field.
On the diversity front, white employees continue to make up the majority of the workforce at 88% (compared to 89% in 2014). Only 30% of those surveyed said they thought that diversity had improved in publishing.
Although the topic of diversity has received more attention in the industry over the past few years, responses to this year’s survey suggest that only slight progress has been made. (Publishers Weekly)
