Answered By: 
The Mayor

There is no reliable administrative or survey data on the hourly earnings of the self-employed.

Hourly earnings estimates for employees use the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings.  This source does not collect information for the self-employed, and the Office for National Statistics advises that there is no reliable alternative data source.
