The statistics show wage developments throughout the year for full-time employees within different industries. Wage developments vary between industries and differing quarters throughout the year.
Two indices are presented; one showing changes in basic salaries, and one showing changes in average monthly earnings including basic salaries, irregular payments and bonuses. The variable irregular payments and bonuses are computed as an average for the current quarter. Thus, the timing of disbursements of, for instance, bonuses influences the index, which may consequently be subject to greater fluctuations between the quarters.
The statistics is now published as Number of employments and earnings.
