Job Markets Australia 2020-2021

Historial Earnings

Average weekly full-time earnings for 2018 and earlier years in the Job Markets Australia series are available from the website.

The website also has average weekly full-time earnings for the longer-running What Jobs Pay series. Earnings statistics are available for all years from 1978 onwards.

The combined What Jobs Pay and Job Markets Australia series provide the most detailed current and historical full-time earnings in Australia. These have been produced using, where the data sources permitted, the same methodology and time-series, thereby ensuring consistency within a year, between years and over time. The methodology was adjusted to permit estimation of earnings for missing individual years and for the ten years before 1988, the year when the original methodology was first applied. The Sources page has further details.

The combined series includes the 1,000 ANZSCO occupations and all major, minor and unit groups in the ANZSCO Dictionary, as well as extra age details. The fullest amount of occupational and age details are included from the source files held by Yorkcross Pty ltd.
