Industry Earnings data is arrived at by aggregating the compensation paid for the labor of all workers in a given industry. The compensation comes from three areas:

  • Wages and salaries paid to all workers in a given industry.
  • Supplements to wages and salaries such as employer contributions to employee pension and insurance funds.
  • Proprietor earnings.

The data is reported as average earnings per job. In some public data sources, such as Bureau of Labor Statistics’ SPI/LPI and QCEW, Industry Earnings are called “wages.”
