Note that from the 1st quarter of 2019 the base year of the index has been changed according to the methodology of the Labour Cost Index and the time series recalculated. The base year of the index is now the average for the year 2016 instead of the average for the year 2012.
The results are preliminary and revised on a quarterly basis. The base year for the index is the average for the year 2016
The Total Wage Index is based on the methodology of the Labour Cost Index according to the Council Regulation no 450/2003. The Total Wage Index is compatible to the wage section of the Labour Cost Index (WAG - wages and salaries) with the exception that the index is based on paid hours, rather than hours worked, and payments for sick hours are here counted as wages rather than labour cost (OTH - labour costs other than wages and salaries) as in the Labour Cost Index.
The results are part of a development project which Statistics Iceland has been working on where calculations are based on exploitation of varied data sets. Information on total wages is based on tax related wages from administrative data, Pay as you earn data. Paid hours are estimated with a multimodal statistical evaluation and are among else based on data from Statistics Iceland surveys, particularly the Icelandic Survey on Wages, Earnings and Labour Cost, and also administrative data.
