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.

“Labour Market and Salary Trends” is the Salary Information Agency's biannually published analysis of the Agency’s latest employer and employee survey outcomes and official national statistics.
On 2 February 2017, the Agency and its partners published their latest report “Labour Market and Salary Trends: Autumn–Winter 2016/17”. The report contains the findings from the employer survey and the employee and job-seeker survey the Agency carried out with its partners in November 2016.
The Agency surveys Estonian employers and employees twice a year – in spring and autumn. In November 2016 the survey involved 404 employers, 11,225 employees and job seekers.
The survey's focus is on salaries and how they change. Every survey also contains a few questions about some currently topical labour market issue, which in November 2016 were about job satisfaction, motivation and loyalty of employees.
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 according to our participants' feedback. Survey participants can submit data for over 400 occupations.
