Improvements in the quality of earnings data

Following the changes made in the 2017 cycle of Characteristics of Employment, the ABS has undertaken a further review of its imputation methodology. The review highlighted quality gains from making further improvements in the quality checking of reported data prior to imputation.

These improvements have been implemented and applied to the 2014-2018 period, resulting in revisions. The refinements resulted in negligible revisions to headline median time series, while the revisions to mean time series data have noticeably improved their coherence with other ABS earnings measures, particularly for male earnings.
