GENERAL NOTES
----------------------
The value of the total wage reported in this variable should equal the value of the basic wage in addition to bonuses, benefits, allowances, profits, etc.

When the original dataset has only wage categories, the total wage is calculated as the midpoint of the range provided.



COUNTRY SPECIFIC NOTES
----------------------------------

The original wage variables (by type of wage) are only reported for wage workers and regular employment.
The daily, weekly, monthly, 3-month, quarter and yearly wages in pounds are provided.
The daily wages were multiplied by 24, weekly wages were multiplied by 4, 3-month/quarter wages were divided by 3 and the yearly wages were divided by 12 to generate a new variable of monthly wages (by type).
The total wages were then generated by summating all wage variables by type of wage, after converting all original variables to monthly amounts.
