LEED - Workers with multiple jobs, by industry 1999–2014
Job: a unique employer-employee pair present on an EMS in the reference quarter.
Mean/median earnings: Mean (average) or median earnings of all full-quarter jobs.
LEED covers all individuals (‘employees’) who receive income from which tax is deducted at source. These payments are made by organisations that are registered with Inland Revenue. Note that the data from LEED includes social assistance payments, such as paid parental leave, student allowances, benefits, pensions, and Accident Compensation Corporation payments, although these are excluded from the quarterly measures.
For inclusion in the LEED quarterly statistics, the job must:
- relate to a person 15 years of age and over
- have PAYE tax deducted at source
- be in relation to ‘paid employment’ rather than a social assistance payment
- have a valid IRD identifier.
An exception is the total earnings measure, which includes all jobs with PAYE tax deducted at source (irrespective of age and IRD identifier) apart from those relating to social assistance payments.
