Germany - Data on real earnings - December 31, 2015

The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) reports that, according to the results of the quarterly survey of earnings, the index of real earnings rose by an average of just over 2.4% in the third quarter of 2015 year on year. The index of nominal earnings increased fewer than 2.6% in the same period. Employed persons benefitted almost from the entire increase as the consumer price index rose by just 0.1%. Both the earnings components of paid regularly and extra payments contributed to the growth in earnings. The large increase in nominal earnings continued for persons employed with below-average earnings, as was the case in the first two quarters of 2015.
