Gross weekly earnings

Indexed gross weekly pay in London and England (2002-2022)

This indicator shows how Londoners’ weekly pay (before tax, adjusted for inflation) has changed over time, using 2008 as a baseline. 

On average, Londoners were paid 8% less in 2022 than they were in 2008. Londoners at the 10th percentile of weekly pay (those with incomes lower than 90% of Londoners) were paid 9% less - and those at the 90th percentile (those with incomes higher than 90% of Londoners) were paid 13% less.

This is starkly different to the rest of England. On average, workers in the rest of England were paid 3% less in 2022 than in 2008 - while those at the 10th percentile in the rest of England were paid 11% more in 2022.
