This subset of the OECD Employment and Labour Market Statistics Database contains three earnings-dispersion measures - ratio of 9th-to-1st, 9th-to-5th and 5th-to-1st - where ninth, fifth (or median) and first deciles are upper-earnings decile limits, unless otherwise indicated, of gross earnings of full-time dependent employees. The dataset also includes a series on:-

the incidence of low-paid workers defined as the share of full-time workers earning less than two-thirds of gross median earnings of all full-time workers;

the incidence of high-paid workers defined as the share of full-time workers earning more than one-and-half time gross median earnings of all full-time workers;

gender wage gap unadjusted and defined as the difference between median wages of men and women relative to the median wages of men.

Data are expressed in ratios and presented from 1950 onwards.
