The Labour Price Index (LPI) measures the price of labour services and reflects change in wages and salaries over time. Change is measured relative to the base year, 2008-09, for which the figure is set to 100.
Wage data are collected quarterly from a random sample of 4,800 businesses on the Australian Business Register, which is stratified by state, industry, sector and business size. The LPI collects data related to 20,000 jobs nationally. For more information, refer to Labour Price Index: Concepts, Sources and Methods, 2004.
