The salary mass of the public sector accumulates an increase of 10.5% between 2020 and 2021

They accumulate a rise of 10.5% between 2020 and 2021. The wage bill of civil servants increased by 5.1% during the past year. To this figure must be added the rise that already occurred in the 2020 financial year, when public salaries rose by 5.2%. In this way, the data obtained through the declarations of the Personal Income Tax (IRPF) before the Tax Agency show a and also the average performance, with higher remunerations.

Throughout last year, the growth rate of public salaries moderated during the second half of the year due to the progressive absorption of the impact of hiring in health and education that took place in 2020 to face the coronavirus crisis. In addition, the increases derived from the salary equalization process in the State security forces and bodies also had an impact on the data.

As a result, and unlike what happened in 2020, the wage bill grew more due to the increase in employment and less due to the increase in average performance, affected precisely by the entry of new wage earners with lower average remuneration. By Administrations, it was -as in 2020- the autonomous communities that registered the greatest increase in the wage bill, although the improvement was greater in local corporations.

For its part, with regard to public pensions, the mass of pensions grew over the past year by around 3.5% in a stable manner. Two and a half points were due to the increase in the average pension, which was produced by the revaluation at the beginning of the year and by the incorporation of pensioners with average pensions higher than those already in the system. The other part of the growth came from the 1% increase in the number of pensioners.

overall rise

In general, wages grew by 7.4%. The trend in the year, as a reflection of what had happened in 2020, was the uneven evolution in the private and public sectors. Private sector wages grew by 8.2% thanks, in particular, to the good results of SMEs -a rise of 15.1% compared to a fall of 12.4% in 2020-, especially in the second half of the year.

In large companies, growth was 3.4%, which offset the fall in 2020 (-2.7%). In both cases, the wage bill in 2021 exceeded that in 2019 -an increase of 0.6% in large companies and another 0.8% in SMEs, which makes a rise of 0.7% in the set-. By activities, the recovery was uneven because in 2021 there were still restrictions in some periods of the year that prevented full normalization.

Increase the income of the home

Thus, gross household income grew by 5.9%. Given the situation in 2020, the rents that improved the most were those that had the worst performance last year, that is, rents from the private sector. On the other hand, public income, which in 2020 served as support for household income, in 2021 remained practically stable.

Except for income from movable capital and those from leases of premises, the rest of the yields recovered strongly, remaining at the end of the year above the level they had during 2019, the last year before the coronavirus pandemic appeared. Income from work, which is the main source of income in households, grew by 4.3%.
