The average monthly gross salary per one employee is also calculated alongside the monthly average gross wage in the public sector. This average salary is calculated as the ratio of salary and monthly treatments with the number of employees both in the public and private sector. By sectors of the economy, the average monthly wage is higher in the transportation and communications sector. Starting from 2000 until 2013, this sector maintained the highest rate of the average wage per employee with the exception of Year 2008 when the construction sector had the highest average salary per employee.

Wages in the construction sector experienced a tremendous growth in the years 2007-2009, while in the last four years the average monthly salary in this sector has declined. The average monthly salary rates in the industry sector were increased on continuous basis in each passing year.  The average monthly salary in the sectors of Trade and Services was consistently increased until 2009, but after this year the average monthly wage in these sectors has undergone fluctuations.
