Average wages in European countries





Become a member of TranslationDirectory.com at just $8 per month (paid per year)




This is a map and list of countries containing monthly (annual divided by 12 months) gross and net income (after taxes) average wages in Europe in their local currency and in euros. The chart below reflects the average (mean) wage as reported by various data providers. The salary distribution is right-skewed, therefore more than 50% of people earn less than the average gross salary. These figures will shrink after income tax is applied. In less developed markets, actual incomes may exceed those listed in the table due to the existence of grey economies. In some countries, social security, contributions for pensions, public schools, and health are included in these taxes.

Map

The countries and territories in purple on the map have net average monthly salaries in excess of €3,000, in blue – in the range of €1,500–€2,999, in green – €600 to €1,499, in yellow – €400 to €599, in red — below €400.
