MANUFACTURING IN CHINA [updated 4 April 2011]



Acknowledging the importance of China as one of the United States' largest trading partners, BLS has undertaken the development of estimates of hourly compensation costs in manufacturing for that country. Data are published in the BLS “International Comparisons of Hourly Compensation Costs in Manufacturing" news release and are also shown below. Compensation costs for China are not directly comparable with the data for other countries found in this release and therefore are presented separately.

A description of the methods used to construct the estimate for 2002 and data comparability issues can be found in "Manufacturing Earnings and Compensation in China" in the August 2005 Monthly Labor Review (MLR). In general, the methods used to prepare the hourly compensation costs data for later years are the same as those used in this article. The estimates for later years are presented in subsequent MLR articles (see Publications below).
