Earnings & Hours Worked

The Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) dataset is released by ONS every Autumn. The survey is conducted in April each year to obtain information about the levels, distribution and make-up of earnings and hours worked for employees.
This data set provides information about earnings of employees who are living or working in an area, who are on adult rates and whose pay for the survey pay-period was not affected by absence.

ASHE is based on a sample of employee jobs taken from HM Revenue & Customs PAYE records. Information on earnings and hours is obtained in confidence from employers. ASHE does not cover the self-employed nor does it cover employees not paid during the reference period.

The data can be accessed via an interactive dashboard covering Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, as well as regional and national comparators, available at the link below:
