Median earnings report published

22 February 2023

​Statistics Jersey have today published a new experimental statistics report on estimates of gross earnings in Jersey.

The publication of these experimental statistics is designed to invite feedback from users on the results and the methodology whilst these continue to be developed.

These statistics were produced using data already held by Government for administrative purposes, specifically Social Security contributions and Manpower returns. They provide a greater level of detail and additional information than is currently available in our existing official statistics.

The production of these statistics is part of a wider program of work by Statistics Jersey to produce or  improve statistical outputs, using administrative data. This would include more frequent earnings statistics than the Average Earnings Index (AEI) and additional analysis within the Labour Market report. 

The report presents median earning levels on a full-time equivalent (FTE) employee basis. By combining  administrative data sources, employment and demographic information are linked. This enables breakdowns by:

  • industrial sector
  • age
  • sex
  • self-declared nationality
  • “monthly pay quarter”; this splits the population into four groups based on earnings level and then  calculates medians of each group, which provides measures for those on upper, middle, and low  incomes

Breaking down average earnings by sex enables gender pay gap measures to be calculated, overall and for  each of the variables listed above.

Additionally, changes over time can be calculated. Including annual changes and changes by approximate cohort over a 5-year period.
