Analysis of the distribution of earnings across the UK (ONS)

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.

N.B. Data is not available for all levels of geography, indicators and years due to sampling.
