Labour Price Index Australia

Labour Price Index Australia
Measures quarterly changes in Australian wages. Two versions of the Labor Price Index exist: one which includes bonuses, and one which excludes them. The Labor Price Index is similar to the US Employment Cost Index, an early indicator of wages pressure on inflation. An increase in the index suggests rising inflation pressures because firms tend to eventually pass higher labor costs onto consumers in the form of higher prices. The headline figure is the quarterly percentage change in the Labor Price Index.

Technical note: The index is constructed by combining 8 separate indexes. The 4 wage price indexes are:
ordinary time hourly rates of pay excluding bonuses index
ordinary time hourly rates of pay including bonuses index
total hourly rates of pay excluding bonuses index
total hourly rates of pay including bonuses index

The 4 non-wage price indexes are:
annual and public holiday leave
superannuation
payroll tax
workers compensation
