At the same time, significantly increased revenues in air transport and the financiers. The website “Today” figured out how Ukrainians earn and how income has changed over the past month.

How Ukrainians earn

The average salary in Ukraine for the previous month decreased by 0.3% to 7360 7339 UAH, and in comparison with July of last year grew by 36.6%. At the same time, real wages for the month fell by half a percentage point. As noted in the state statistics service, real wages takes into account the number of products and goods that you can afford over a certain amount with the increase of prices.

“At the moment the statistics in our country should be treated with extreme skepticism, namely the average wage. In General, this ratio includes in the calculation only the official salaries of workers and nothing more. Based on this, indicators that he demonstrates a very distorted reflect the real market conditions”, – says senior analyst “Alpari” Vadim Iosub.

HR-expert Alexandr Bilous also said: to focus on the national average salary only evaluating the level of official salaries. The real incomes of Ukrainians may be significantly different. First, the part of the Ukrainians receive additional payments “in envelopes”, from which no taxes are paid and which does not “see” statistics. Second, employees who do not feature, in fact can get significantly less than the official average wage.

“Fiscal service periodically makes statements about how much employers pay wages “in envelopes”. And the numbers are very impressive. At least every third Ukrainian has informal income, including receives part of the salary in the “gray area”. I would say that you need to focus on the level of wages in a particular market. For example, in Kiev, the sellers can claim the salary of 8-10 thousand hryvnia. This figure is valid only for the capital, and only for sellers. In the river it can be 4-6 thousand hryvnia, and in some rural areas in General 2-3 thousand hryvnia”, – says Alexander Belous.

According to official data, the salary is close to minimum (nearly 3,200 USD) receive less than 10% of Ukrainians working. The number of Ukrainians who earn more than 10 000 UAH, increased by 4.4 percentage points.

The average salary above 10 000 just a few areas. In air transport earn 32 233 hryvnia, pharmacists earn an average of 104 14 of the hryvnia, IT-schnick – 11 822 hryvnia, financiers – 13 521 hryvnia, scientists 094 10 hryvnia, the developers of quarries 062 10 hryvnia.
