This WageIndicator Data Report presents the results of the face-to-face WageIndicator survey in Benin, conducted between the 15th and 19th of October 2012. The survey aimed to measure in detail the wages earned by Beninese workers, including the self-employed. In total 2,002 persons were interviewed in towns and cities of nine out of twelve departments of Benin.
The workers in the survey live in households with on average 3.6 members, including themselves. Over half of both male and female workers live with a partner and children. Just over four in ten workers had diplomas from secondary education, 16% of workers followed no formal education, one in four stopped at elementary education and 16% followed tertiary education. Women are more likely to have no education and less likely to have enjoyed tertiary education. On a scale from 1=dissatisfied to 10=satisfied, respondents rate their satisfaction with life as a whole a 5.6 on average.
