COVID-19, wage development, composition effect, sectoral and regional wage differences, Slovakia
Document type: článok
Data and research on earnings during the COVID-19 period show that the pandemic also significantly changed the development of wages. It significantly differentiated the development of wages in economic sectors and regions. The aim of this contribution is to capture and evaluate in detail the development and changes in the level of wages in Slovakia and in its statistical districts in the first year of the pandemic (hereinafter FYP). An information on the basic characteristics of the development of wages at the national level is provided while several coefficients and parameters of growth/increase. A more detailed overview of the development in the regions was provided by descriptive statistics – wage indicators in the districts. The results showed that although the rising trend of wages was maintained in the FYP, it was much lower than in the period before the pandemic. The relatively favourable state (growth) of wage development in the FYP at the national level is reduced/weakened by the situation in some districts with low growth or even a decrease in earnings. For the first time in a long period, four districts with a decrease in earnings were registered in the FYP. At the same time, the results showed that wages in the state sector showed higher growth in the FYP overall (and in individual forms of ownership) than in the private sector. The different influences and impacts of COVID-19 on wages in individual sectors, in turn, revealed the vulnerability of some sectors. Spatially differentiated changes in the development of wages identified districts that improved even during the pandemic (wage growth), as well as districts that were most affected by their decline.
