The Department has not commissioned research into the average earnings of workers from the 2004 EU accession states. However, the Government does publish data from the Worker Registration scheme (WRS) which regulates access to the labour market of the A8 EU accession states on a quarterly basis. The latest quarterly statistics for the period 1 May 2004-30 September 2006 were published on 21 November 2006. This report includes information on the number of hours worked by A8 workers and their hourly wages.
A copy of the report is available on the IND website:
