Total sum of wages paid by private companies increasing

The total sum of wages paid by companies in the private sector in April–June increased by 4.3 per cent compared to the corresponding period in the previous year. The growth rate was somewhat lesser than in the preceding quarters, as at the turn of the year, the rate was almost two percentage points higher.

Statistics from the first quarter of 2018 are unavailable, which means that the figures generated after this are not directly comparable with earlier indicators of growth. The unavailability of statistics from this period is due to the implementation of the Incomes Register and the new format of source material.
