Employment and labour market Analyses based on Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings: provisional 2018 and revised 2017

Commenting on today’s figures from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings, senior ONS earnings statistician Roger Smith said:

"Average weekly pay for full-time employees is now increasing at its fastest since the financial crisis, in cash terms, with hourly pay rising fastest among lower-paid occupations. However, after taking account of inflation, earnings are still only where they were in 2011, and have not yet returned to pre-downturn levels.

“The gender pay gap fell to 8.6% on our headline measure, its lowest ever. But it isn’t the same for everyone – it’s close to zero for employees aged under 40, but widens for those who are older.”
