Earning Inequalities in the Parishes of Lisbon

“Quadros de Pessoal” database is collected annually by the Strategy and Planning Office at the Ministry of Labour and Social Solidarity (GEP/MTSS). It results from a survey applied to all Portuguese companies and it collects information about these companies’ establishments and workers. Since 2003 the parish of the establishment is one of the collected information. The possibility to do an analysis at the parish level allows a more comprehensive view of what happens inside the municipalities.

There are already some works about the socio-spatial differentiation of the residents of Lisbon municipality, but considering the importance of this as hub employer, it is also important to know the differentiations among the population working there, whether they live there or not. Actually, the labour market in the municipality is crossed by distinct economic patterns.

In 2009 Lisbon municipality had 408 837 workers, who were employed in 35 376 establishments. The average earning in the municipality was 1 508 Euros, more 500 Euros than the national average that year.

A look to the average monthly earnings according to workers’ sex reveal that men that work in Lisbon municipality earn, averagely, more 33.7% than the national average ; for women this percentage is 30.0%.

If one considers the workers school attainment, we see that workers with ISCED 3/4 are the ones that are more rewarded for working in Lisbon municipality : they earn, averagely, more 20.7% than Portugal workers with the same school attainment.
