Annual personal income includes the gross and net annual income of employees and pensioners and is presented on the basis of social statistical evaluations of wage tax data. The wage tax data contains the annual wage slips of all persons who have received income from employment and/or pensions. In addition to detailed information on various types of income and taxes paid, information on the type, duration and extent of the employment relationship is included. For example, the social-statistical secondary analysis of the data enables evaluations to be made according to social status, age groups and federal provinces. In addition, the group of fulltime full-year employees can be shown separately.
