Thinking over the past year, can you tell me what have been your
average earnings? (Please, tell me the amount per week, per month or per one year, whichever is easiest for you).
By average earnings, we mean the amount of money (only monetary income, not payments in kind), whether in the form of salary or other, that the respondent has earned in the last regular work year. Record the amount per week, per month or per year as said by the respondent. The options “refuse” and “don’t know” have been coded separately to distinguish them from any amount given.
