The median pay gap among all companies that have reported is 9.7%.
Of those that have submitted their figures, 78% pay men more than women, 14% pay women more and 8% said they had no gender pay gap, based on the median measure.
Firms with more than 250 staff must state the average difference between male and female employees.
