The Public Service annual salary movement

The HRC survey provides a snapshot of the base salaries of staff in the Public Service as at 30 June each year. In the year to 30 June 2015, the movement of the average salary was 2.7%. This movement is affected by the occupational structure of the workforce, movement in staff pay, and the salaries of new and departing staff. It measures the salary change of the Public Service as a whole, as opposed to measuring salary movements for individuals. The trend since 2011 is shown in Table 3.2. This group is slightly different from the core Crown group that is mentioned above.
