When you decide on living and working in Australia, the first thing you need to establish is whether or not you will be able to support yourself once you’re there. Thankfully, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) released an Average Weekly Earnings Survey for 2014 on 22 January 2015. This survey contains key average weekly earnings figures which will be helpful to anyone interested in furthering their career in Australia.
The survey has been designed specifically to measure the level of average earnings in Australia in May 2014. It reflects the average earnings as classified by ANZSCO unit group, gender and average age. Any changes reflected in the average can be due to changes in both the level of earning per employee and the composition of the labour force. Changes to the labour force can include variations in the spread of full-time, part-time, casual and junior employees, as well as changes in the occupational distribution in and among sectors.
The data on which the figures are based was collected from the 2014 survey of Employee Earnings and Hours (EEH). This survey was conducted with respect to the previous pay period on or before 16 May 2014. This survey is conducted every 2 years and is designed to provide detailed statistics on employee earnings.
