Finland - Detailed wages statistics published - August 31, 2017

The statistical office released its yearly evaluation of hourly wage levels across dozens of professions. The ranking only looks at hourly wages, not salaries and other forms of remuneration, so it only reveals part of the whole earned-income picture. Hourly wage earners working in the private sector earned an average of 15.98 euro in the last quarter of 2016 (up 1.1% compared to the same period in 2015). The data indicate that the pay gap between men and women in terms of average hourly wages went down slightly, and stands at an even 3 euro.
