Analysis, Comperative job, salary survey

This guide started with an comperative work with a theoretical description of the tab's application and a description of analysis. Scroll down a bit in this article for a guide on how to best use the view.

The new interface enables simplified analyzes!

At first glance, this view may feel a little strange, but we are sure that you will very quickly appreciate the new possibilities built into the system just to facilitate analyzes.

For description of tags click on the button below.

Just as in analysis equal work, there is an opportunity to adapt the diagram below. Use the icons in the upper right corner to switch between plotter, line or box diagrams. At the bottom, you also see here regression analysis and the opportunity to change the value of the x-axis between age, year of employment, number and time in the current role.

A new function in the analysis for comperative works is that the analysis from analysis equal work is presented to the right in the picture for the marked comparison work. You thus avoid "going back" to analysis of equal work to see if you have referred to something special there that can explain the salary situation for the group.

Analysis, Comperative works

In this tab, the analysis of wage differences between female-dominated and non-female-dominated jobs is made. In order for a job to be classified as female-dominated in the system, it must consist of at least 60 percent women.

In the list of female-dominated jobs, hopefully not all of the organization's female-dominated jobs will appear. Those who are not on the list are either the lowest valued or have a high salary in relation to their valuation / to other comperative or lower valued non-female-dominated jobs.

The analysis you are now going to do is about explaining how it comes about that a non-female-dominated work that is equally or less valued (i.e. judged to be less or equally complex) has a higher salary than the specific chosen female-dominated work.

Here we recommend that you describe the possible high wage situation for each non-female-dominated work with the introduction "The wage situation for ... is explained by ...".

In the analysis of comperative work, it is also common to refer to the market. It is perfectly okay to refer to the market, but then remember to also describe in what way the market affects the salary for the group. Is it about an alternative labor market or is it about the fact that there is currently a shortage of certain skills that are thus difficult to recruit?

Works and working methods

To the left of the view, you will find a list of all female-dominated works that have been developed for analysis, according to the criteria that form the basis for comperative analysis. In other words, in the list of jobs, you will find the female-dominated jobs that can be compared and analyzed against non-female-dominated jobs, which are equal or lower valued but have a higher average salary.

Mark the work in the list that you are to analyze, the system will then produce the comparable work. You get some key figures that describe the differences between the jobs, pay extra attention to the boxes and the proportion of women, it can help in the work.

You see the female-dominated work at the top of the list and the comparative non-female-dominated work below. All works are "clickable" and you can tag and write analysis texts for each work. In this way, you can take advantage of the analysis work further.

If you want to import work history from previous equal pay audits, click on the clock icon in the upper right corner next to mark as complete button.


Get help before the analysis of the filter functions on the right. They work in the same way as for analysis, so the filters are based on the work you have marked in the list of female- and non-female-dominated works.


The diagram works in the same way as in analysis, except that the X-axis, Y-axis, and grouping are based on other data. Use the plotter diagram to compare between the works, group the works and use previous analyzes from similar works.


To perform the analysis for comperative work, you can use the filters and groupings right in the system, directly in the analysis view. In addition, you can review which parameters for the X and Y axis suit your organization. Enlarge the chart to find the options for the parameters.
