Survey name(s): Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE)

The Patterns of Pay article presents an analysis of UK earnings trends from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE). ASHE is ONS’s most detailed and comprehensive source of information on levels of earnings, make-up of total earnings and distribution of the earnings of employees.

The United Kingdom Statistics Authority has designated these statistics as National Statistics, in accordance with the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007 and signifying compliance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

Designation can be broadly interpreted to mean that the statistics:

  • meet identified user needs;
  • are well explained and readily accessible;
  • are produced according to sound methods; and
  • are managed impartially and objectively in the public interest.

Once statistics have been designated as National Statistics it is a statutory requirement that the Code of Practice shall continue to be observed.
