Women have made remarkable strides in education during the past three decades, but these gains have yet to translate into full equity in pay. Women still earn less than men earn in nearly every profession and at every stage of their careers, and this earnings gap is evident in every state in the nation. This report focuses on educational attainment and earnings among women in Texas. Texas ranked 31st in the nation in 2000 for the proportion of its female population with a four-year college degree or more. Women in Texas have lower levels of education than do men in the state. In 2000, 25.1 percent of men and 21.4 percent of women had completed four or more years of college. While women in Texas with at least a four-year college degree had the 18th highest median annual earnings in the country, compared to similarly educated women, the state ranked 30th, much lower, for the earnings ratio between women and men at that level of education. Both educational attainment and earnings vary by women's race and ethnicity, urban or rural status, and family income. This publication is part of a joint project of the American Association of University Women Educational Foundation and the Institute for Women's Policy Research to analyze women's educational status in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. The report includes detailed information on the educational status of women and the economic gains from education in Texas. Appended are: (1) Methodology; and (2) State and National Data on Women's and Men's Educational Attainment and Earnings.
