Ohio women make about 78 cents for every dollar made by their male counterparts, according to a new study by National Partnership for Women and Families.

That difference amounts to an overall salary disparity of about $10,600 annually. That’s in line with the national gender pay gap, which is about $10,700.

In Montgomery and Greene Counties, the difference was greater -- with women making an average of $11,000 less than men per year.

The study looked at women employed full time in the state of Ohio.
