- Version 1 (Subtitle)
AbstractThe data provide a description of the differences among the most common methods for measuring average wages and an exploration of how these differences can systematically change the answers to some important questions about wages. The different characteristics of the various measurement methods (average hourly earnings, compensation per hour, or the employment cost index) make them suited to different purposes.
