.@jamespeshaw has asked Stats NZ to collect gender pay gap data

The Sunday Star Times reported today that

The Government has ordered Statistics NZ to begin measuring the country’s gender pay gap… new Statistics Minister James Shaw believed there was an onus on his department to gather the data, so the Government could fix it.

It was too early to know exactly how it was going to be measured, Shaw said in a written statement.

Not sure to what to make of this because extensive data is already collected.
