Operational Definitions
The Real Wage Index of workers including supervisory and technical workers, clerical and secretarial workers, service workers, miscellaneous and non-production workers, craftsmen and operatives as defined in the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO). They are based on the Labour Earning Survey (LES) which covers time-rated and piece-rated workers. Proprietors, family workers, out-workers and employees who are paid less than the established wage rates (such as part-time workers, apprentices, learners, trainees and workers on probation) are not covered. Wage data collected refer to wage rates only. Wage rates are usually expressed as time rates which refer to the amount of money paid for normal time of work and relate to a time-unit such as an hour, a day, a week or a month.
All figures are collected from Census and Statistics Department since 1986. Figure for 1981 is not available. Figure for 1982 is used as a proxy for 1981. All figures refer to the position as at September of year.
