This chart uses individual level data from ASHE to calculate the growth of nominal weekly earnings for individuals observed in pairs of years in 2006 and 2007; 2013 and 2014; 2014 and 2015; and 2015 and 2016. Note that the ASHE methodology is not specifically designed to model earnings growth for individuals over time.
This chart only looks at workers whose pay growth between 2015 and 2016 fell between -10% and +20%. As such, the proportion of workers on the y-axis should not be interpreted as the entire population of workers.
