Definitions and explanations

The average monthly salary is calculated as the sum of the individual’s full-time salary divided by the number of individuals.

Lower quartile, median and upper quartile means that 25%, 50% and 75% of the employees have a salary that is less than the specified value.

All numbers are rounded to the nearest hundred, unless the number is under 1000 and then the numbers are rounded to the nearest ten. The salary information is rounded to the nearest hundred. Totals are calculated before rounding.
