Low wage workers experienced wage growth faster than inflation in 2021: Real annual composition-adjusted wage growth by percentile, 2020–2021
Notes: Data refers to changes between January–December 2020 and January–December 2021. Wages are adjusted for inflation to February 2022 dollars using the CPI-U-RS. Wage changes are available only up to the 90th percentile because of topcoding issues (see Gould, deCourcy, and Mokhiber 2022).
