Employee wages include wages paid in cash and noncash forms, accrued by an employee for time worked and not worked, compensation payments related to working conditions and work schedule, supplemental and additional payments, bonuses, and one-time incentive payments, as well as regular payments for meals and housing. Wages earned by an employee both at his main job and also at a second job are counted.

Compensation of employees in noncash form (in kind) includes:

  • payment for the cost of meals and food provided free of charge (entirely or in part) at cafeterias, in the form of coupons;
  • payment for the cost of housing, public utilities, and fuel provided to employees free of charge (entirely or in part).

Current wage surveys cover the number of people employed at organizations in permanent, seasonal, and temporary work. Women who are on maternity leave to care for a child up to the age of 3 years are not included. Part-time employees are counted in proportion to the time actually worked.

Also compiled:

  • Average nominal wages are wages including taxes and other withholdings in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation, expressed in average monetary units per employee. This figure is compiled for the month, quarter, from the beginning of the year, and for the year.
  • The nominal wage index is computed on the basis of current survey data as the ratio of average monthly nominal accrued wages in the reference period to the average monthly nominal accrued wages in the base period.
  • The real wage index is computed as the ratio of the nominal wage index to the consumer price index for the same time period.
  • Nominal wage indexes by occupation and by job level started in 2006, as source data for these computations become available.

Money income consists of gains of persons engaged in entrepreneurial business activity, accrued remuneration of employees, social transfers (pensions, benefits, grant, insurance compensations and other transfers), property income in the form of interest on deposits, securities, dividends, and other incomes.

Disposable money income equals money incomes in the current period less compulsory payments and due ...

Per capita average money income (per month) is calculated by dividing the total sum of annual money incomes by 12 and by the population size.

Changes to method

Starting January 2017 ROSSTAT has started to follow new classification OKVED 2 which is harmonized with NACE Rev. 2.
