Source: Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) - Office for National Statistics
The introduction of the Standard Occupational Classification 2010 (SOC 2010) in 2011 affected the weighting used to produce estimates from ASHE. Care should be taken when comparing data before 2011 with later data (dotted line).
The Occupational defined contribution category includes employees who have pensions with the National Employer Savings Trust (NEST). The Group personal pensions category includes group personal pensions, group stakeholder pensions and group self-invested personal pensions.
