Please take a few minutes to complete this survey - it's open to all UK based Mumsnetters.

Everyone who completes the survey and adds their details at the end will be entered into a prize draw where one person will win £200 of Amazon vouchers.

Thanks and good luck

Done. A couple of the average salaries surprised me I admit.

TheSkiingGardener · 20/06/2012 18:50

Done, same here. Average salaries were an eye opener.

BIWItheBold · 20/06/2012 22:04

Average salaries are very misleading!

I'm the latest (and hopefully the luckiest)

flapperghasted · 21/06/2012 07:34

done. And agree avge salaries not right, surely?

poorbuthappy · 21/06/2012 09:05

Done, but how could the ave salaries be wrong? Surely it is taken from official sources? Or just made up? Smile

BIWItheBold · 21/06/2012 09:09

Averages can seem 'wrong' because they take into account the lowest as well as the highest salaries.

Therefore the figures for lawyers and accountants - the ones that made me go Hmm the most - presumably also include all those right at the bottom of the scale as well, who earn about 3/6 when they first start out.

mrspink27 · 21/06/2012 09:19

done - the salaries cant include bonuses and incentive schemes though can they? The estate agent must be on commission surely?

ProfCoxWouldGetIt · 21/06/2012 09:22

Done - but it would have been nice to have the ability to add comments to justify our views.

Iggly · 21/06/2012 09:39

They're not wrong then - just averages are misleading. Perhaps modal figures would be better.

MKP1 · 21/06/2012 11:17

Done...but really if you are asking people's opinions about salaries you should use a better (weighted maybe? or modal) average, or indicate the top and bottom centiles. You should say exactly how many people are included in that average, and you should also say the average salary in the UK.
