Women in HEOR, RWE and Market Access earn $12,000 to $15,000 less than men in absolute base salary (ABS), although the difference is not statistically significant after adjusting for covariates.
These results are reported in a recently published article in the Journal of Managed Care and Specialty Pharmacy, derived from an analysis conducted by University of Texas at Austin researchers Ghosh and Rascati, et al. and based on 2017 self-report data derived from the HealthEconomics.Com Global Salary Survey of 501 respondents. An analysis of earlier responses (2015) to this same survey found a statistically significant difference between male and female respondents (Carvajal 2019).
Updated 2019 salary data will be released within a few weeks. Using the 2017 data, multivariable regression models were developed for both U.S. and non-U.S. respondents and found significantly higher salaries were associated with professionals aged > 40 years; biopharmaceutical employment; having a PhD, PharmD, or MD; and having a job title of president or director (all P < 0.05). The salary differences by gender, although statistically non-significant, represent an opportunity to better understand financial equality in the field of healthcare value.
