The Berlin office for statistics Amt für Statistik Berlin-Brandenburg have just released numbers about the Average Salary in Berlin (2015 Q3). And I must admit I am a little bit surprised about some of the details.
Monthly Average Salary in Berlin in 2015: 2.953 Euro
If you add all the number up – the average salary for full time employed, part time employed and marginally employed employees (men and women) the total gross salary would have been 2.953 Euro in the third quarter of 2015. That would equal a yearly gross salary of 35.436 Euro – about 1,9% more than in the third quarter of 2014.
However, when you take a look at the details of the salary report, there are actually some small ‘surprises’ hidden. Or at least to me it was a bit surprising to learn that also in Berlin men and women are still not equal – female and male employees are not paid equally. And while the average salary for both men and women has risen, it has actually risen just a bit more for male employees – and a bit less for female employees. So the inequality in payment of male and female employees seems to continue for now – the gap widens.
But let’s have a look at the bare numbers. I won’t go too much into detail, since the report is just a bit too detailed for my taste – so here are at least some of the ‘key figures’ numbers from the Berlin office for statistics:

Hi there, i was doing some research on this topic and stumbled upon your post here. I made a more detailed post over at http://www.settle-in-berlin.com/salary-in-berlin/ about how much you should get paid in Berlin. It has more details per industry, experience and profiles, also for non-german speakers. I was wondering if it could be a relevant additional “See also” resource here?
