The Statistical Service notes that, during the first and second quarters of 2021, the Special Schemes of the Ministry of Labour and Social Insurance for dealing with the pandemic were in force, resulting in reduced average gross monthly earnings, since the amount taken into account is the earnings paid by the employer and does not include any amount paid as an allowance under the Schemes.
