Key findings:

  • Overall, probationers’ median or mid-point weekly earnings were 30% below those of non-probationers. A probationer’s median weekly earnings were €406 in 2018 one year after receiving probation supervision, compared with €554 for all employees.
  • The median weekly earnings for female probationers from employment (€309) was just under two-thirds of male probationers (€484) in 2020.
