Occupational earnings are classified as hourly earnings that are specific to occupational data. Occupations have hourly earnings for five percentiles (10th, 25th, 50th [median], 75th, and 90th) as well as the average. For example, 10th percentile earnings of £12/hr indicate that 90% of the workers in that occupation make MORE than £12/hr. Some occupations in our source data have only “annual“ earnings published rather than hourly; for these we still show hourly earnings by dividing the annual figure by 2,080 hours.
Occupation earnings do not include employee benefits, but do include the following:
- Base rate
- Cost of living allowances
- Guaranteed pay
- Hazardous-duty pay
- Incentive pay, including commissions and bonuses
- On-call pay
