WEEKLY EARNINGS IN MAIN JOB

This data item provides the total gross earnings someone earns in a week in their main job as an employee. Earnings are provided in $100 ranges up to $2000 per week.

This item is not collected in the monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS) and is derived from the supplementary survey Employee Earnings, Benefits and Trade Union Membership, Australia (EEBTUM, cat. no. 6310.0), which is collected every August from the employees in seven-eighths of the LFS sample. Owner managers of incorporated enterprises are also included as employees in the survey.

Total gross earnings is the wage or salary collected as an employee before income tax or the Medicare levy are deducted.

The data collected from the EEBTUM survey only relates to the earnings in their main job as an employee only, and does not include any other sources of income or earnings. For income from all sources, refer to Current weekly gross personal income from all sources [WINCALCE].
