Forbes: Boulder No. 9 for highest-paid women
Last Updated: 10:53 February 6, 2014
The median annual salary for women in Boulder is $46,800, according to the report. But women's income here as a percentage of men's came out to just 72 percent.
For its study, Forbes tapped financial website NerdWallet to sort through U.S. Census data.
Boulder was the only city on the list that wasn't located in either the Northeast or the San Francisco Bay area.
The San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara area in California topped the list in terms of wages at $56,000 per year, with women there earning 74 cents for every dollar men make.
San Francisco, however, boasted the smallest gap between women's and men's earnings. Women there make 84 percent of what men do.
The worst paying city in America for women, according to Forbes, is Laredo, Texas, where women's median income is just $24,700.
