medianMedian Salary to the nearest £500


  1. Caution should be exercised when interpreting salary data - figures are not adjusted for inflation and are rounded to the nearest £500.
  2. The method for calculating weighted median salaries has been adjusted for the 2021 publication, which has resulted in changes to the back series for several groups compared with previous GLMS releases. Further details are set out within the methodology.
  3. Labour Force Survey (LFS) datasets are routinely reweighted in line with population estimates. As such, 2020 figures may not reflect those published within the 2020 GLMS release. Further details are set out within the methodology.
