How to calculate your annual salary

To determine your annual salary, take your hourly wage and multiply it by the number of paid hours you work per week and then by the number of paid weeks you work per year.

Annual salary = hourly wage × hours per week × weeks per year

For guidance, a standard working week for a full-time employee is around 40 hours. Note that if you take two weeks of unpaid leave per year, your number of weeks will be 50, rather than 52.

Example annual salary calculation

As an example, if you make $15 per hour and are paid for working 40 hours per week for 52 weeks per year, your annual salary (pre-tax) will be 15 × 40 × 52 = $31,200.

Balancing yearly salary and household spending

Using this formula, we can calculate the following annual incomes from basic hourly pay. It's important to remember that these figures are pre-tax.

What is the US median salary?

The median - or middle - weekly pay for a US worker in 2021 is $989. This works out at $51,428 per year based upon 52 weeks (Bureau of Labor Statistics). There is still much gender inequality in earnings, however. Whilst men have median earnings of $1089, women have median weekly earnings of $900 (82.6% of the figure for men). And it goes without saying that salaries vary greatly by occupation and state, as well as other factors.
