Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings linked to 2011 Census, England and Wales

The Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) linked to the 2011 Census.

The Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) has been linked to 2011 Census to enable more in-depth analyses of both sources.

ASHE is the most comprehensive source of information on the structure and distribution of earnings in the UK. It provides information about the levels, distribution and make-up of earnings and paid hours worked for employees in all industries and occupations. 2011 Census includes information on the characteristics of individuals and the households they occupy.

2011 Census linked to ASHE allows permanent (ethnicity, nationality, formal education), semi-permanent (disability, number and age of children, marital status) and transient variables (household characteristics) to be analysed alongside ASHE. This allows for an increased depth and breadth of possible research avenues on the labour market and beyond.

Methodology information is available in the user guide for Drop 2 of the dataset on the Wage Dynamics website (opens in a new tab) 

All data hosted on the Integrated Data Service (IDS) are de-identified.
