The survey mainly aims to illustrate the development of salary levels for blue collar and white collar workers within the private sector. The statistics are primarily used for assessment of the business sector and as a basis for analyses of trends in costs and competition in Sweden and in the EU. The survey is monthly and is conducted on behalf of the National Mediation Office.


The information to be submitted concerns among other things salaries, working hours, number of employees and any organisational changes.

A detailed description of requested information is available below for your convenience.

We also ask for contact information so we can reach you in case we have questions about the information you submit. If you register your e-mail address we can send you a reminder by e-mail every month when it is time to submit information. Otherwise we will send you this information via the postal service.

As of the 23 of April 2019 it will be possible to deliver the requested information by attaching a text file. Below you will find an item description for how this is done. Please contact your payroll system provider for more information!

The response process is done via a web form (link to the log-on page is in the menu to the right). At the start of the year we send a user name and password that applies for the entire year. Please contact us if you need a user name and password. You can log on as many times as you like and save your information each time so you don't have to fill in all the information at once.

In several pay systems it is possible to obtain these statistics as a report. If you use a report from the pay system, please be sure that the system has the correct settings. For instance, check to see that the employees are correctly registered, that the requested information is connected to the correct type of salary and that absences are registered. Contact your systems supplier if you have questions about this.

If you have already sent your information but need to make changes, please contact us and we will help you.
