AVERAGE WEEKLY EARNINGS

A sample redesign based on Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification, 2006 (ANZSIC06) (cat. no. 1292.0) was introduced into the Average Weekly Earnings (AWE) survey in August 2009, along with some improvements to the survey frame. These changes have resulted in a shift in the level of the series. The difference in the level of the two series (ANZSIC06 and ANZSIC93) has been measured and backcast into the historical series to make a time series of estimates on an ANZSIC06 basis. Because of the extent of changes in level estimates, quarterly and annual percentage change movements for the new ANZSIC06 series are not identical to those under the old ANZSIC93 series. Differences at the state, sector and Australia levels are generally insignificant and within current released standard errors for each series.

Movements in average weekly earnings can be affected by both changes in the level of earnings per employee and changes in the composition of the labour force. For example, changes in the proportions of full-time, part-time, casual and junior employees and variations in the distribution of occupations can affect movements in earnings series. Refer to Average Weekly Earnings, Australia (cat. no. 6302.0).

In May quarter 2010, the trend estimate of average weekly full-time adult ordinary time earnings in Victoria was $1,223.68, an increase of 5.3% from May quarter 2009. Over the same period, trend full-time adult ordinary time earnings increased by 6.0% for males and by 3.1% for females.
