Basic salaries up 2.1 per cent in manufacturing
Preliminary figures for the last quarter show a 2.1 per cent increase in basic salaries for full-time employees in manufacturing between the 2nd and 3rd quarters of 2011. In comparison, figures from 2010 show a 2.7 per cent increase between the 2nd and 3rd quarter.
The statistics show wage developments throughout the year for full-time employees within different industries. Wage developments vary between industries and quarters throughout the year. Two indices are presented; one that shows changes in basic salaries and one that shows changes in basic salaries including irregular payments and bonuses.
Preliminary figures for the wage index show a 1.1 per cent increase in average monthly earnings for the last quarter in manufacturing.

"Average monthly earnings" includes basic salaries, irregular payments and bonuses. Bonuses are often paid at irregular intervals, which mean that this index is subject to greater fluctuations than the index for basic salaries. Overtime payment is not included in the statistics.
