[Photo/Xinhua]Employees in the finance sector earned more money than those in other industries in 2015, according to the data released Friday by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).The annual average income of finance in the previous year is as much as 114,777 yuan ($17,584), 1.85 times than that of the 53,615 yuan national average level.
The other two high-income sectors following finance are the information transmission, software and IT services at 112,042 yuan, and the scientific research and technology services at 89,410 yuan.
The bull stock market drove the whole capital market high in the first half of last year. It pulled up the added value of the finance industry and the growing rate of tax revenue, in line of which was the salary of the employees in this industry, so it is within the expectation of the public that finance tops the list, according to the analysis by China Business News.
The NBS data also indicates that the gap between information transmission, software and IT services and finance has been narrowed from 7,476 yuan in 2014 to 2,735 yuan. It illustrates that internet information sustains stronger momentum in the background of Internet Plus and industrial restructuring.
Compared with that, the income of those industries is much lower which involve more physical work and provide low entrance threshold.The lowest income industries are farming, forestry, animal husbandry and fishery with 31,947 yuan, accommodation and catering industry with 40,806 yuan and water conservancy, environment and public facilities management with 43,528 yuan.
The income gap between the highest-income industry and lowest-income sector has been narrowed a bit as the ratio of the two is 3.59, lower than the 2014 figure of 3.82.Due to the excess production capacity, the average annual income of mining industry dropped 3.7%, the first industry of negative growth in many consecutive years.0Related StoriesLand-sale finance can no longer sustain citiesOnline finance industry will rebound, industry exec saysAIIB to explore cooperation to finance investment projectsPuhui Finance launches new consumer credit productTransparency, not hiding, can help desensitize govt staff salary issueLong journey home for salary-battle staffTop 10 industries with the highest salaryAverage salary in major Chinese cities is $900 and growingPhotoNight views of Harbin through the lensTibetans take train home after pilgrimage or travellingWorlds largest shaftless Ferris wheel built in ChinaAncient cities to be connected by Xian-Chengdu high-speed railwaySnow turns Harbin into winter wonderlandReed Catkin Festival held in WuhanSocietyPoliticsHot TopicsScience/TechBusinessCover StoryFTZ simplifies process to launch businessesJapan can offer experience, expat saysApplication for work streamlinedAwareness of law aids resolutionAir Force units explore new airspaceLow wages and lack of respect responsible for kindergarten abuse, experts sayLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchAgency ensuring natural gas supplyUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingChina moves to secure natural gas supply amid rising winter demandXi asks China, Canada to work for substantial tiesCooperation necessary for success, leaders sayLiving in space: How astronauts train, eat and workTeachers excused for lunchtime drinksWaiting for Shenzhou XICancer agent found in 44 cities drinking waterAt Ikea eatery, its no pay, no stayChina lose 2-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier, coach Gao resignsC919 gains another 55 orders, lifting total orders to 785Services offset dip in manufacturingFintech to energize real economy, cut risksChinas Long March rockets complete 60 commercial launchesEngineers achieve breakthroughChina-made components add securityOnline shopping rings up customer complaintsImport expo to focus on advanced techSME mobile market platform receives first clientsChina top importer of US soybeansAir China opens direct route from Beijing to BarcelonaInsurance-based trust launchedDandelion helping to sow the seeds of stability for membersCover storyVisa change may boost tourism to USThe wrong side of the roadBuilding ban begins to biteVillagers call on Japan to atone for massacreMost ViewedTodays Top NewsWhat is that thing?
