In simple terms this means the average weekly wage of those currently working full-time in the city. Cardiff’s average weekly wage is higher than in the rest of Wales, but despite an upwards trend, remains lower than in other UK cities.

In Cardiff, the gap in income between the richest 10% and poorest 10% is the largest of all ‘Core Cities’. Though this gap is primarily driven through relatively higher earnings of the top 10% of earners, many people in the city are on low-wage, often insecure jobs, with 27% of all workers earning less than the National Living Wage.
