Figure 12: Distribution of growth in gross nominal hourly earnings, by working pattern, April 2016
+/- 0.5 percentage points, UK
Source: Office for National Statistics, Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings
Full-time defined as employees working more than 30 paid hours per week (or 25 or more for the teaching professions)
This chart uses individual level data from ASHE to calculate the growth of nominal weekly earnings for individuals observed in pairs of years in 2015 and 2016. Note that the ASHE methodology is not specifically designed to model earnings growth for individuals over time.
Note that the proportion of people experiencing a pay growth between 10% and 11% may not reflect the proportion of people on the National Living Wage in the earnings distribution in April 2016. This is because the growth analysis is focussing on employed workers in two consecutive periods and not just in April 2016.
