About the data analysis:
The information is provided choosing Median Data. The median is the value below which 50% of jobs fall. It is ONS’s preferred measure of average earnings as it is less affected by a relatively small number of very high earners and the skewed distribution of earnings.
It therefore, gives a better indication of typical pay than the mean.
Our main median average salary metric aggregates all sources providing a non-biased view of true salaries by job title and region.
