The gap between public and private wages: new evidence for the EU is a 2013 report published by the European Commission.

This paper aims to assess the size of the wage hap between the public and private sectors within European Union by using the European Structure of Earnings Survey, compiled by Eurostat for the years 2006 and 2010. Public sector employees are found to enjoy on average higher wages than comparable workers in the private sector in 2010, even after controlling for the level of educational attainment.

Regarding gender, there is no evidence of a higher positive wage gap for women.
