In 2016, the average rate of compensation of employees in the European Union (EU), in terms of wages, salaries and employers' social contributions, ranged from €44 per hour worked, in the Brussels city region and in Luxembourg, to below €4 per hour worked in three regions in Bulgaria (Severen tsentralen, Severozapaden and Yuzhen tsentralen) and the Nord-Est region of Romania.
The corresponding average across the EU as a whole in 2016 was €23 per hour.
Hourly compensation per employee was often highest in the capital region of EU Member States. Exceptions to this were in Germany (Oberbayern), the United Kingdom (Inner London West), Italy (Provincia Autonoma di Bolzano/Bozen), Spain (País Vasco) and Greece (Dytiki Makedonia).
