We all know that there is gender pay gap that women get less salary than men on average, and we have shared an interactive Google Maps about this phenomenon in New Jersey before. Here we have found another U.S. for showing a wider picture of this issue.
According to the above chart and map, we can see that women make 77 cents for every $1 earned by men in average, and women in Washington, D.C., Marland, Nevada, and Vermont can even earn more than 84 cents for every $1 the men make. However, the gender pay gap still exists, that happens in every county, and even female employees working in the White House make less dollar than men.
So you think the gender pay gap is an issue that has to be solved? Share your views with us.

This heat map is not user friendly to read as the color setting is a bit complicated. We would suggest using continuous color rather than the current discrete range color since the former can better present the differences of data values in various counties.
