Benchmark your salary - Djøf's salary calculator now includes 2020 figures

Djøf’s salary statistics and salary calculator give you insights into pay trends in your field of work. The latest version of the salary calculator now includes the most recent data.

There are no hard and fast rules about how much you should be earning. Your salary is a function of your market value, so, when negotiating your salary, you need to have an idea of what you are worth. This is where Djøf’s salary statistics and salary calculator can help.

Our Tjek din løn salary calculator (in Danish only) shows average salaries based on a range of factors, such as:

  • Education (in Danish: uddannelse)
  • Experience (in Danish: erfaring)
  • Industry (in Danish: branche)
  • Title/job description (in Danish: titel/stillingsbetegnelse)
  • Geographic location of position (in Danish: jobbets geografiske placering

Typical salary level

The salary calculator comes up with a typical salary based on the information you enter. You can also see the lower quartile, the upper quartile and the 90th percentile.

Where your salary falls on this scale depends on supply and demand, your employer’s financial situation, any collective agreement terms and other factors. For that reason, the figure the salary calculator returns is only an estimate – but it can give you a good indication of what you should be earning.

The result also shows any special terms that may apply in your industry.

Based on valid data sources

The salary calculator bases its results on salary statistics for members and is updated at the start of each year. The current calculations are based on 2020 statistics.  

The salary statistics for the private sector are based on survey responses from some 10,000 Djøf members.

The public-sector statistics are based on a survey of members employed by municipal or regional administrations. The statistics for state employees are based on data from the Ministry of Finance’s Agency for Modernisation.
