What you need to know about the NCAA’s ‘gender pay gap’
An NCAA investigation is underway into a report that female athletes are paid about half what men are.
But what does the study really say?
The NCAA has not released its report into the pay gap.
The study is being led by a professor at the University of Massachusetts, who was hired to investigate pay equity between men and women at the college level.
It is not yet known if the report will include data from the men’s and women’s NCAA sports.
The study was initially scheduled to be completed this fall, but it was delayed in February due to concerns over the potential for a data breach.
It was released last month.
This article was updated Feb. 12, 2018 at 10:50 a.m. with more information on the report and to reflect that the report does not have data from men’s NCAA basketball.
