All earnings data was taken from the 2008 and 2018 versions of the Office for National Statistics’ Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings.
Specifically, we looked at Annual Gross Pay (Table 15.7a) from ASHE Table 15: Earnings and hours worked, region by occupation by four-digit SOC.
With the cost of living increasing year-on-year, it’s good news that, for most of us, our earnings have also gone up over the last 10 years.
But which jobs and industries have seen the biggest increases? And which have actually dropped since 2008?
We’ve analysed earnings data from 2008 and 2018 to see how things have changed for over 200 different occupations, and how earnings have changed in different parts of the UK.
