• Average hourly earnings peaked at older ages in 2013 compared to 1975.

• The difference between male and female average pay for the under 30s has decreased dramatically since 1975.

• Since 2011 the top 10% of full-time earners have had the largest falls in wages after adjusting for inflation.

• Since the introduction of the National Minimum Wage, wage growth at the bottom of the earnings distribution has been strong for both full and part-time employees.

• Almost a third (32.6%) of those in the top 10% of earners worked in London in 2013 while 12.3% of the bottom 10% of earners worked in the North West.
