    Default Average income up

    Average income 'up 4 per cent'

    1.00pm Thursday October 5, 2006

    The average weekly income has jumped 4 per cent to $610 in the past year, Statistics New Zealand said today.

    Government statistician Brian Pink said the rise in the overall average was due to a combination of higher wages and salaries and more people in work.

    Men continued to do better than women overall. The average weekly income for men in the three months to June this year was $754 for males and $473 for females.

    Over the year, the increase in the number of wage and salary earners was similar for males and females, up 5.2 per cent and 4.5 per cent respectively, Mr Pink said.

    For those receiving wage and salary income, the average weekly wage and salary income increased more for females (up 6.7 per cent) than for males (up 0.4 per cent).

    The figures were included in the annual New Zealand Income Survey, which is run during the April to June period. The survey provides a snapshot of income statistics on people and households.

    The average number of hours worked was unchanged from the same period in 2005.

    Labour costs continue to rise
    Monday February 05, 2007

    Workers' earnings are increasing, according to Statistics New Zealand data released today that is regarded as an important indicator of inflationary pressure.

    Salary and wage rates (including overtime), as measured by the Labour Cost Index (LCI), increased 3.2 per cent in the year to the December 2006 quarter, Statistics New Zealand said today.

    This was more than the 2.9 per cent expected in a Reuters survey.

    And seasonally adjusted total gross earnings increased 9 per cent in the same period, the largest annual increase ever recorded in the Quarterly Employment Survey (QES), SNZ said.
