Wages and salaries
Wages and salaries include income paid to households as pay – either in money or benefits in kind. In the income concept, income from incentive stock options is included in benefits in kind and thus in wages and salaries. The concept of wages and salaries used in the income distribution statistics includes not only wages and salaries for regular working hours but also overtime compensations and income received from secondary jobs. Realised incentive stock options are also included in wages and salaries in the income concept of the income distribution statistics. Their generating costs are deducted from wages and salaries, but not travel expenses.
