Operational Definitions
The Real Wage Index covers supervisory and technical workers, clerical and secretarial workers, service workers, miscellaneous and non-production workers, craftsmen and operatives. It is based on the Wage Enquiry of the Labour Earning Survey (LES) which covers time-rated and piece-rated workers of selected occupations under the coverage of the survey. Proprietors, family workers, and out-workers are excluded. Part-time workers, apprentices, learners, trainees and workers on probation are also excluded because their job duties may be different from the job descriptions pre-defined in the survey. The Real Wage Index measures changes in wage rates after discounting the changes in consumer prices. Wage rates include basic wages and other regular and guaranteed allowance and bonuses and relate to the amount of money paid for normal hours of work.
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.
