A.1 Guide to interpreting figures and tables in this report

Percentiles and box plots

This report uses box plots to visualise the position of the 5th, 25th, 50th, 75th and 95th percentiles for Base Salary, Total Remuneration Package (TRP) and Total Reward (TR).

Percentiles mark intervals where data occurs, in relation to the whole dataset. Note that the 25th and 75th percentiles are referred to as Q1 and Q3 respectively. These intervals are described in the table below.

Example box plot elements

The example below shows box plots of base salaries paid to employees at a given classification level in two consecutive years. The horizontal axis shows the years, A (left column) and B (right column) and the vertical axis represents the amount of money paid.

In each set of 4 boxes (one set for each year), the percentiles are represented by horizontal lines and are labelled at their appropriate positions for P5, Q1, Q3 and P95. The median is represented by the thicker middle line.

The box colours are different to distinguish between intervals and focus your eye on the spread of data from the first to third quartile (Q1 to Q3), where the majority of data lies. They have no other meaning.

A larger box between percentiles indicates a greater range of data points between the largest and smallest values in that interval, in this case, base salaries paid. A smaller box indicates a smaller range of data points.

Therefore, in year B, the pay range increased at Q3—shown by larger distances between the median and Q3 relative to year A. In addition, there was no change in the 5th percentile, Q1 and median from year A to year B.

A.2 Methods

Data collection and validation

All APS agencies were required to report data for all employees that were employed under s22(a), s22(b) and s72 of the Public Service Act 1999 as at 31 December 2019.

Raw data was collected from agencies using standard guidelines set out in the APSC Remuneration Data Specifications. Data submissions were validated by the APSC against the Australian Public Service Employment Database (APSED), current agency pay points (from Employment Instruments) and approved, clean data submitted by agencies in the previous year.

Data that failed the APSC quality checks was returned to agencies for correction and resubmission, after which the data was returned for final clearance and incorporation into the remuneration dataset. Agencies are responsible for signing off on the accuracy of their data prior to inclusion in the report.

Data standardisation

The following steps were taken to standardise the collected data:

  • For part-time employees, data was recalculated into the full time equivalent (FTE). Figures were annualised for employees who worked for only part of the year (though active as at 31 December 2019).
  • Employees who were in a graduate program in 2019 for more than 90 days during the year were categorised as ‘Graduates’, even if they had advanced to other classifications by 31 December 2019. Remuneration for these employees was recorded as at their last day as graduates. An anomaly in the application of this rule in 2017 graduate data was identified during the development of the 2018 report. The 2017 data set has been re-based to correct this.

Additional notes on interpreting this report

  • The weighted median is used throughout the report. The weighted median is different to the median. The median is the point for which 50% of values are below and 50% of values are above. The weighted median is an adjusted midpoint taking into account numbers at each classification level. It provides an estimate of percentage changes in remuneration over time while accounting for changes in headcount at each classification. This is an historical measure from successive APS remuneration reports.
  • Some columns in the tables may not add up because TRP and TR are calculated separately for each employee. These are the values which determine the median. Therefore median TR is not always the sum of all medians for Base Salary, TRP and TR.
  • Data from this report should not be used to calculate past or present populations of the APS. For accurate data as at 31 December 2019, please refer to the 31 December 2019 Employment Data Release.
  • Data is analysed and tabulated using several different propriety software packages which may lead to minor variances in data reported between tables. These differences are also evident when trying to recalculate values based on the data in the reports in common programs like Microsoft Excel.
  • Changes in software used to analyse and produce the APS Remuneration Report occurred in 2017, from SAS to Tableau. This has resulted in minor changes to how the reported distribution data is calculated due to the two programs using different, patented methods for calculating percentiles when even numbers of observations occur. Such differences in calculations have had a minor impact on the position of percentiles that were reported in previous years.
  • Therefore it should be noted that the data reported for previous years as presented in the current edition of the APS Remuneration Report will differ from reports published prior to 2017.
  • Population data used for analysis in this report is based on data from the Remuneration Survey unless stated otherwise. This may differ from APSED data due to a different collection scope.
