Real average hourly earnings for all employees increased 0.2 percent from June to July, seasonally

increase in average hourly earnings being partially offset by a 0.1-percent increase in the Consumer 
Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U).

Real average weekly earnings increased 0.2 percent over the month due to the increase in real average

Real average hourly earnings increased 0.7 percent, seasonally adjusted, from July 2016 to July 2017. 
The increase in real average hourly earnings combined with a 0.3-percent increase in the average 
workweek resulted in a 1.1-percent increase in real average weekly earnings over this period.


Production and nonsupervisory employees

Real average hourly earnings for production and nonsupervisory employees increased 0.2 percent from
