VR wage calculator September 2021

VR's wage calculator tells you the median wage and the average wage of members in September 2021 by job title, both within industries and without regard to industries.

VR's wage research is based on a wage calculator on My pages on VR’s web site, My wages. The figures published for September 2021 are based on the wages of over 12,000 members who have registered job titles and working hours on My pages. All wage comparisons are for full-time employment only.

Wage calculation is based on membership fees, ie. only wages from which membership fees are paid. Wage figures where there are few answers should be viewed with caution as they may not be descriptive of the whole group. Figures are not published for a particular job title unless the repsondents are at least ten.

Base wages are calculated on the basis of total wages and information on the number of overtime hours that members record on My pages. Education, experience or other such factors are not taken into account.
VR's industry classification is based on the ÍSAT classification, which is adapted to VR's needs.
