January 2017: Average salary 41,508 dinars

The average net salary in Serbia in January 2017 amounted to 41,508 dinars, which is nominally 22.4% and realistically 23.5% less than the average salary paid out in December 2016 – the Serbian Statistical Office has reported.

Compared to January 2016, the average net salary grew by 2.6% nominally and 0.2% realistically. The average gross salary paid out in January 2017 stood at 57,231 dinars and is nominally lower by 22.3% and realistically by 23.4% relative to December 2016. In comparison to the average gross wage paid out in January 2016, it was nominally higher by 2.6% and realistically by 0.2%.

According to the Serbian Statistical Office, the fact that the average wage in January was lower than the one in December is a usual occurrence because of the New Year and Christmas holidays. The highest average wage was paid out in the town of Sjenica – 78,467 dinars – which is almost twice as high than in the previous months. The statistical data shows that last year the average wage paid out in Sjenica was around 35,000 dinars.

The similar hike in average salary happened in Priboj in the past, and the statistical experts attribute this to one of the companies or public institutions in the area paying out outstanding wages.
