      The Wall Street Journal just published the CEO pay and share holder return for the S & P 500 companies.  Their conclusion (women CEOs are paid more) is different from mine: the women are not paid more than the men - they are paid the same, at least if one adjusts for statistical noise.  

      Neither gender is better for share holders.

      Here is the result of my ANOVA:
      Field Men Women p (useful if <0.05)
      Total CEO Pay ($million)
      13.288
      14.346
      0.65
      ShareHolderReturn (%)
      0.143
      0.232
      0.10




      And here are the graphs:

      As usual, there is no correlation between CEO pay and share holder return:
