This field identifies HE leavers with more than one job on the census date and what their estimated total earnings are for a year.

Applicable toEngland Northern Ireland Scotland Wales

All HE leavers where Employment.JOBSNO is coded 2-9.

QuestionQ8. If this was not your only employment on [the census date], what do you estimate your total earnings would be for a year to the nearest thousand (£) before tax?

A numerical (xs:integer) value must be coded.

For example:

£15,000 should be coded as 15000

£6,000 should be coded as 6000

A response to the question is expected if the following codes were used for Q2 (Employment.JOBSNO): 2-9.

The value in the field must not be lower than the value returned in (Employment.SALARY)

Students who complete Employment.SALARY and/or Employment.ESTEARN with currency other than £ (pounds) will need the HEI to convert the currency to £ before submitting data to HESA. This conversion can happen at any point during the DLHE schedule and does not need to be the exchange rate as at the census date. Students who are working part time should return in Employment.SALARY and then the number of hours worked in Employment.PTHOURS. There is no requirement for HEIs to create a full time equivalent salary for the leaver.
