The average annual salary of urban employees in China's non-private sector rose to 37,147 yuan in 2010, an increase of 4,411 yuan or nearly 14 percent compared to 32,736 yuan in 2009. The growth rate was 1.5 percentage points higher than that of 2009, according to a statistical report published by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) on May 2.

Statistics showed that the average yearly income of non-private sector employees in Shanghai was 71,874 yuan last year, ranking first in China. Beijing workers ranked second with an average annual salary of 65,683 yuan. The salary of Jiangxi workers was the lowest standing at 29,000 yuan per year. Employees in the financial industry enjoyed the highest average salary, 4.7 times higher than the lowest average salary.

Shanghai tops the country in average salary

Employees in nine provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities enjoyed an average annual salary higher than the national average, accounting for over 31 percent of all urban non-private sector employees in China.

Shanghai ranked first with an average annual salary of 71,874 yuan, followed by Beijing (65,683 yuan) and Tibet (54,397 yuan). Ningxia and Qinghai in western China performed well in the rankings partly due to the central government's constant support for the development of the western regions, a relevant NBS official said.

Jiangxi saw the lowest average annual salary at 29,000 yuan. The average annual salary in Jilin and Heilongjiang were both below 30,000 yuan.

The grow rates of the average annual salary in 15 of the 31 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities surveyed were higher than the national average of nearly 14 percent. The growth rate in Shanghai, Beijing and Tibet, the top three regions for average yearly income, were 13.1 percent, 13 percent, and 11.6 percent, respectively, lower than the national average. However, the slow growth is reasonable given their already high income levels.

The average annual salary per capita of the financial services industry stood at 80,000 yuan, while the agriculture and forestry industry stood at less than 20,000 yuan

In regards to various industries, the top three industries with the highest annual average salary per capita are the financial services industry, which has an average of 80,772 yuan or 2.2 times the national average level, followed by the information transmission, computer services and software industry, with an average salary of 66,598 yuan or 1.8 times the national average level, and the scientific research, technical service and geological prospecting industry, with an average salary of 57,316 yuan or 1.5 times the national average level.

Industries with the lowest annual average salary per capita are the agriculture, forestry, animal husbandry and fishery industries, which have a salary of 17,345 yuan or only 50 percent of the national average level, followed by the hotels and catering services industry, with an average salary of 23,812 yuan or only 60 percent of the national average level, and the water conservancy, environment and public facilities management industry, with an average of 27,229 yuan or only 70 percent of the national average level.

The ratio of the highest annual average salary to the lowest stood at 4.7 to 1.

Employees in incorporated companies earn the highest salaries.

Judging from the data of registration types, employees in incorporated companies earn the highest annual average salary, standing at 45,991 yuan, which is more than 1.2 times the national average level. The annual average salary of employees in foreign-funded companies stood at 40,180 yuan, nearly 1.1 times the national average level, and the annual average salary of employees in state-owned enterprises stood at 39,471 yuan, nearly 1.1 times the national average level.

The annual average salary of employees in collective enterprises is the lowest, standing at 24,430 yuan, which is only less than 66 percent of the national average level.
