Average earnings per job (dollars)

Average earnings per job is total earnings divided by total full-time and part-time employment.

Earnings is the sum of three components of personal income--wages and salaries, supplements to wages and salaries, and proprietors' income.

The BEA employment series for states and local areas comprises estimates of the number of jobs, full-time plus part-time, by place of work. Full-time and part-time jobs are counted at equal weight. Both employment for wages and salaries and proprietors' employment are included, but the employment of unpaid family workers and volunteers is not included.
