The following estimates from the New Earnings Survey 1970 relate to adults employed in Great Britain on a full-time basis in manual occupations, whose pay was not affected by absence during the survey pay-period in April, 1970. Weekly earnings are gross before deductions, exclude the value of income in kind and tips but include the average weekly value of annual and other periodical bonus and commission payments. Estimates according to family circumstances are not available.
