The statistical salary calculator ‘Salarium’ is an interactive application which allows you to obtain for a specific job (economic branch, region etc) and for a selection of individual characteristics (age, level of education etc.) the following salary information:
- the gross monthly salary (middle or median value)
- the salary dispersion (interquartile range)
The values calculated by the Salarium are based on a provisional model designed by the FSO and uses the data gathered from the Swiss Earnings Structure Survey (ESS) 2016.
The results do not constitute a recommended salary. They show the salaries actually paid in 2016. They may be unconstitutional from a gender equality point of view (Art. 8 para 3 Cst.) and contrary to the prohibition of discrimination (Art. 3 EqA) and the right to national treatment according to the Switzerland-EU Agreement on the Free Movement of Persons.
