Data on average weekly earnings are collected from the payroll reports of private nonfarm establishments. Earnings of both full-time and part-time workers holding production or nonsupervisory jobs are included.

Average weekly earnings rose by 3.2 percent, seasonally adjusted, from November 2004 to November 2005. After deflation by the CPI-W, average weekly earnings decreased by 0.4 percent. Before adjustment for seasonal change and inflation, average weekly earnings were $551.00 in November 2005, compared with $532.22 a year earlier.
