Salaries for those who work in Hackney up, salaries for those who live in Hackney down

The ONS released data the other day giving an update on the hours we all work and the salaries we receive in return (their Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings, to give it its proper title).

The data is broken down by age group, occupation and whether employment is in the public or private sector, amongst other factors, though figures for individual local authorities provide perhaps the most interesting findings.

As has been noted elsewhere, women living in Hackney who work full-time now earn more than the borough’s men in the same position on average – a characteristic reportedly shared with only three other areas around the country.
