Summary/Abstract: The aim of the paper is to determine the impact of average pay estimation on the size and direction of the pay gap in Poland in regional terms. The pay gap between men and women is a negative phenomenon that has been analysed and described in an increasingly broader context. Scientific communities and social policy practitioners have developed methods for measuring the size of the gap. The methodology used by the bodies of the European Union allows researchers to obtain the so called unadjusted wage gap estimates, i.e. ones that do not take into account the individual characteristics of men and women. The paper presents the wage gap estimates by province, calculated on the basis of the European methodology, with the use of eight different variables which characterise the average pay earned by men and women.
