+/-20 pence, 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).
Each point on the x-axis represents a rolling sum of the density of jobs receiving greater than or equal to 20 pence below, and strictly less than 20 pence above, the stated hourly earnings.
As the density records the rolling sum of jobs paid within 20 pence of the stated amount at each point on the x-axis, jobs paid the April 2016 Adult National Living Wage (£7.20) will appear between the x-axis values of £7.00 and £7.40.
