We investigated the effects of current pay, market surveys, job evaluation points, job gender, and rater sex on pay rates for jobs. A total of 406 compensation administrators assigned new pay rates to nine jobs in one of two matched job sets, either all predominantly female or all predominantly male. The two sets were matched on all quantitative data (current rate, market rate, and job evaluation points) but varied in terms of job titles and descriptions. We conducted multiple analyses of variance and regression analyses to determine whether job gender had a significant effect on assigned pay rates, holding other factors constant. Regardless of the analysis, no evidence of gender bias was found. Limitations and suggestions for future research are offered. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
