Wage Structure Surveys evaluate the effects of the characteristics of employees and employers on wages levels and on the way employees are paid. These and the labour cost surveys form a pair of complementary European surveys. Until 2005, each survey was four-yearly, alternating every two years. From 2006 onwards, they were integrated into the Survey on the cost of labour and wage structure (ECMOSS). This new procedure allows for an annual adjustment of the changes in the cost of labour and work.
