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.

Manual men aged 21 and over:

Mean 26.90
Median 25.70
Mode in range 22 to 24

Manual women aged 18 and over:
