Figure 15: Median growth rate of nominal weekly earnings for those continuously employed, by age
Source: Office for National Statistics
This chart uses individual level data from ASHE to calculate the growth of nominal weekly earnings for individuals observed in each pair of years. Weighted summary statistics for the distribution of nominal earnings growth rates are calculated using their population weights in the second period, as longitudinal weights are not available for the ASHE survey at present. ONS is examining the feasibility of producing a set of longitudinal weights for ASHE that would permit more thorough analysis. Note that the ASHE methodology is not specifically designed to model earnings growth for individuals over time. The median presented here measures the median earnings growth rate for all employees.
