Footnotes

Base period for earnings index is 1st quarter 2016.
Average monthly basic earnings and average monthly earnings are given in NOK, rounded to the nearest ten.
Establishments in the industrial classification 09.1 Support activities for petroleum and natural gas extraction, and some other industries, are given a land code from the Central Coordinating Register for Legal Entities, even where operations are carried out on the Norwegian continental shelf. Previously, establishments that Statistics Norway considered to be on the continental shelf were given a new code. However, this procedure has been discontinued. This means that many jobs that were previously registered under the Norwegian continental shelf are now considered to be on the Norwegian mainland. This has further led to an artificial decrease in the number of employed persons on the Norwegian continental shelf and a corresponding artificial increase in other counties, mainly in Rogaland and Hordaland. The biggest changes occur in second quarter of 2018 (mainly the industrial classification 09.1) and third quarter of 2019 (mainly the industrial classification 09.1 and industries related to catering).
Changes in reporting in the first quarter of 2020 have led to improved quality in the information on wages. The changes have resulted in an increased wage level. The most noticeable change has been in the industry division 05-09 Mining and quarrying where the average monthly basic earnings have increased by 0,8 percent, and monthly earnings have increased by 0,6 percent. Within this industry division the changes are most noticeable in 06 Extraction of oil and natural gas, with an increase in monthly basic earnings by 1,6 percent, and monthly earnings by 1,2 percent. The changes in reporting will also affect other classifications (occupation, place of work etc.) to a varying degree.
Figures for 2018K1 were corrected 7 May 2018.
