Default Professionals and Managers - Is Your Pay above the Median?

If you’re a working professional in your late thirties, the median gross salary in your age group is $5,048/mth.

Managers in the same age group make a median pay of $6,500.

This is according to the Ministry of Manpower’s Report on Wages 2008 (released middle of this year).

Here are the stats for the various age groups:

1. 25-29 age group: Managers $3,860, Professionals $3,416
2. 30-34 age group: Managers $5,225, Professionals $4,269
3. 35-39 age group: Managers $6,500, Professionals $5,048
4. 40-44 age group: Managers $7,150, Professionals $5,536
5. 45-49 age group: Managers $7,480, Professionals $5,800

Is your pay above the median?

And here are the top 22 managerial and professional jobs ranked by their median gross wages in the late-thirties age group:

1. Specialised surgeon - $26,250
2. Advocate and solicitor - $12,243
3. Managing director - $12,000
4. Fund manager - $11,854
5. General manager - $11,459
6. Company director - $10,515
7. Business management consultant - $9,619
8. Legal officer - $8,725
9. Treasury manager - $8,500
10. Risk management manager - $8,209
11. General physician - $8,176
12. Legal service manager - $8,015
13. Chemical engineer (Petroleum) - $7,854

This is accurate right? How did you manage to compile the stats? Yes my pay is above the median for both manager and professional, so happy. S$4K monthly before bonuses and CPF contribution, 29 years old.

displeased: yeah its true. Dunno whether the figures above are artificially deflated, they seem detached from reality. I know lots of people drawing $10K at only 27 years old.

I think all of you should read this to interpret the meaning of median. CancerGuide: The Median Isn't the Message

Also, note that this is a sample statistics and not population statistics (right?).

Still, the numbers should be indicative right? If everyone around me is making 10k, then the numbers must be wrong… (but my friends aren’t making 10k )sti

still, i don’t know the pay of everyone around me..only a select few..only 2 who are in the same job earning $10K a month..the rest are about within the median bracket highlighted above. I only rather narrowly exceeded the median by $400 for my age bracket.

What pique my interest is that, the manager pay is higher than professional pay for the same age. This means that a manager in a so called non-professional field eg F&B manager earns less than a professional eg engineer, lawyer?
