About the data
Average workplace earnings in Devon are below the national average at £25,936 per annum. These lower incomes are broadly reflective of the high rates of employment in sectors with lower pay such as Retail, Health and Tourism. Only Exeter has workplace earnings close to the national average and weekly earnings for employees in Torridge are some of the lowest in the country. This disparity between districts is key to not only commuting patterns but also to relative income and reflects the quality of jobs available in an area.
