The data is available from the ONS Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE). The table below provides this information.  ASHE covers employee jobs in the United Kingdom. It does not cover the self-employed, nor does it cover employees not paid during the reference period.             


1. Annual estimates are provided for the tax year that ended on 5th April in the reference year. They relate to employees on adult rates of pay who have been in the same job for more than a year.

2.Caution needs to be exercised when interpreting data in real values as the data has been deflated by the CPI at the national level rather than the regional level

3.. Please note that some of the data for some authorities are more accurate than others. In order to check the accuracy please refer to coefficients of variation:
