The Salary Information Agency
The Salary Information Agency is an independent Estonian survey agency that offers employers and employees the most up-to-date salary information about the Estonian market.
The Agency’s mission is to generate useful information for employers to help them create competitive compensation packages and for employees to develop adequate salary expectations.
The Agency gathers its salary data through biannual surveys of Estonian employers and employees, and analyses it in the context of national and international statistics.
Agency’s salary surveys
Input from employers and employees
The Agency uses a similar methodology to survey employers and employees, which produces unique comparable data about salary expectations and real salaries.
Salary surveys are carried out twice a year – on April and October salaries. The survey of October salaries provides an opportunity to compare our results with the official statistics both in Estonia and internationally since statistical offices of many countries collect data about the same period.
The surveys consist of two parts: labour market trends and salary data.
Similarly to statistical offices, our surveys classify occupations according to the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO) recommended by the ILO, which we have supplemented further according to our participants' feedback. Survey participants can submit salary data for over 400 occupations.
Latest market and salary trends in Estonia
“Palgainfo Trendid” is a biannually published summary of the most extensive labour market and salary survey in Estonia.
On 7 February 2018, the Agency and its partners published their latest report “Palgainfo Trends: Winter 2018”.
The publication is based on the results of the employer, employee and job-seeker survey carried out by the Salary Information Agency and its partners in May 2017.
The Salary Information Agency surveys employers and employees twice a year – in the spring and in the autumn.
Participant numbers in the survey of May 2017: representatives of 852 organisations and 14,215 employees and job-seekers.
