Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to analyse whether UBS provides internationally comparable information on how teachers' salaries stand in relation to the salaries of other occupational groups. UBS is identified as the only source that provides comparable information on teachers' salaries in relations to other occupational groups. This information is contained in Prices and Earnings Around the Globe, a study published every three years by the Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS). This study provides information on the salaries of a number of professions, among them primary teachers. The data make it possible to compare teachers� salaries with those of other occupational groups in twelve cities in the EU, EEA and Candidate Countries during the period 1979 to 2006. In the comparison of various occupational groups it is found that while teaching is one of the best-paid occupations in some cities, it is one of the worst paid in others. Generally teachers are paid less than engineers and product managers, but in most cities they are better paid than building labourers and female factory workers.
