Unpacking the Gender Earnings Gap among Uber driver-partners

Source: Stanford University

  • There is a gender pay gap for Uber drivers, but it’s not attributable to discrimination.
  • ⅓ of the gap is due to experience. Men work more hours than women and gather more experience.
  • ½ of the gap is due to driving speed. Men drive 2.2% faster than women.
  • The rest of the gap is due to location. Men, on average, drive in locations with higher surge and lower wait times
