Type d'opération :


Objectifs :

The revised Hourly Labour Cost Index - All Employees (ICHTrev-TS) allows the monitoring of monthly trends in the hourly cost of labour (remunerations, social contributions and taxes inclusive of subsidies) and acts as a reference for certain contractual indexing clauses.

This index is calculated in response to a national and European requirement. It relates to the European regulations on short-term statistics ("STS" EC regulation no.1165/98, amended by EC regulation no. 1158/2005).

Champ de l'opération

Champ(s) statistique(s) couvert(s) :

This new indicator is calculated for the 13 sections (B to N) of the new NAF activity classification NAF rev. 2 - 2008, covering the market sector (non-agricultural).

The non-agricultural market sector covers:

- Extraction industries

- Manufacturing industry

- Gas, electricity, steam, conditioned air

- Water; sewerage, wastes, cleanup

- Construction

- Trade

- Transports, warehousing

- Accommodation, catering

- Information, communication

- Finance, insurance

- Real estate activities

- Specialised, scientific and technical activities

- Administrative services, support.

The revised ICHT is available at a more aggregated level of the classification but, in return, covers a greater number of activities.  Enterprises can refer to a labour cost indicator that is closer to the sector in question.

Caractéristiques techniques

Unité statistique enquêtée :

Enterprise or Establishment

Périodicité de l'opération :

Monthly whith quaterly publication

Historique :

This index was calculated for the first time in 2009. It replaces the ICHT-TS, created in 1996, which was calculated on a "structure-constant" basis, i.e. not taking account of any changes to the description of jobs or of their distribution according to gender.

The old-formula ICHT-TS only covered 4 specific business sectors (Mechanical and Electrical Industries, Textile, Leather and Clothing, and Services provided primarily to enterprises).

Source d'information :

The revised Hourly Labour Cost Index - All employees (ICHTrev-TS) is derived from the economic data from the Central Agency of Social Security Associations (ACOSS), which provides information about wage bill, employee numbers and social charges exemptions.

The Labour Activity and Employment Conditions Survey (ACEMO) carried out by the Research Studies and Statistics Department of the Ministry for Labour (DARES) provides the hourly volume of labour.

Méthodologie :

This indicator, like its forerunner, cannot be revised and remains monthly but is published each quarter, regardless of the sector (base 100 in December 2008). The ICHT-TS was only based on the basic salary.

The revised ICHT takes account of all elements of the wage (premiums, bonuses, overtime) in addition to the increase in the qualification structure.

The ICHTrev-TS is determined by relating the sum of the payroll and social charges, after allowing for exemptions, to the hourly volume of labour.
