It is not possible to provide average income estimates for the breakdowns requested but average earnings estimates are available.
Average levels of earnings are estimated from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE), and are provided for all employees on adult rates of pay. The ASHE, carried out in April each year, is the most comprehensive source of earnings information in the United Kingdom.
The following table shows median gross weekly earnings in Birmingham, Ladywood constituency, Birmingham local authority and the West Midlands in 2011.
|Median gross weekly earnings (a) for full-time male, full-time female, part-time male and part time female employee jobs: (i) Birmingham, Ladywood constituency, (ii) Birmingham local authority, (iii) West Midlands for April 2011|
|Gross weekly earnings||Birmingham, Ladywood (b)||Birmingham (c)||West Midlands (d)|
|Notes: (a) Employees on adult rates whose pay for the survey pay-period was not affected by absence. (b) ( )Parliamentary constituency. (c) Local authority. (d) UK region. Guide to quality: The Coefficient of Variation (CV) indicates the quality of a figure, the smaller the CV value the higher the quality. The true value is likely to lie within +/- twice the CV—for example, for an average of 200 with a CV of 5%, we would expect the population average to be within the range 180 to 220. Key: CV <= 5% * CV > 5% and <= 10% ** CV > 10% and <= 20% X unreliable. Source: Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE), Office for National Statistics.|
