Since 2018, employers in the UK with more than 250 employees are required to report data on the gender pay gap in their organisations. This data is published by the government and available to download on their website. Although it does not group organisations by sector, charities can be identified by matching their company number against records of the Charity Commission.
Python was used to match organisations against the Charity Commission register and analyse the gender pay gap in charities. Findings from the data analysis were published through a blog, including data visualisations created with datawrapper and plotly.
