Footnotes

  1. All populations are rounded to the nearest 5 full-person equivalent (FPE) individuals
  2. Earnings figures are rounded to the nearest £100; percent changes and differences in earnings are calculated using unrounded values.
  3. c = data has been suppressed due to small numbers. z = there is no result (N/A)
  4. The adjustment for inflation used the 2015/16 tax year as a base year, hence real earnings in this year are presented as equal to nominal earnings. For 2016/17 to 2021/22 nominal earnings were adjusted using Consumer Price Index (CPIH) inflation rates at the end of each tax year relative to the end of the previous tax year.
