It was the biggest gain since comparable records began in 2009 but it should be noted that there may be a compositional effect due to the significant changes in employment in certain sectors. The change in average weekly earnings may be impacted to some degree by those employments that have left or joined a sector having lower/higher average earnings than those employments that remained in the sector in both quarters.
