LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Nevada has the fifth smallest gender pay gap in the nation, according to a recent study from Business.org.

The report shows women in Nevada earn on average 13% less than men. The average female salary comes in at $40,775, while the average male salary comes in at $46,706 in the Silver State.

Women in Nevada effectively stop getting paid on Nov. 15 because of the 13% wage gap, Business.org reports. In its report, the business research site explains it uses a stop-pay methodology, where stop-pay dates are based on the day of the year women start working for free based on the gender pay gap in that state.

Nationally, there is a gender pay gap of 18%, which results in the pay-stop date for the country of Oct 29.
