So we've looked at the average salaries an Administrative Coordinator will earn in Afghanistan. The next interesting data point is the distribution of salaries.

Salary ranges

We already know that an Administrative Coordinator can earn between 275,200 AFN and 767,400 AFN on average in Afghanistan. This is known as the range in statistics.

The difference between the maximum and minimum values is a good indicator of variability in salaries, and can be used by employers to figure out how much they can expect to pay, and for employees to know how much they can earn.

Median salary

The median salary for an Administrative Coordinator in Afghanistan is 466,900 AFN. This is the middle value in the distribution of salaries.

What this means is that approximately 50% of the population earn less than 466,900 AFN, and 50% of the population earn more than 466,900 AFN.

If you are earning more than the median salary, that's a good indicator that you are being paid well.

If you're not earning more than the median salary, your objective should be to increase your earnings to be at least as high as the median salary (which you can do by asking for a pay rise, looking for a better paying job, etc).

Percentiles

Percentiles are similar to the median salary, but instead of looking at the middle value, they look at the values in the top and bottom half of the distribution.

For the average Administrative Coordinator salary in Afghanistan, 25% of the population are earning less than 332,100 AFN while 75% of the population earn more than 332,100 AFN.

75% of the population earn less than 566,900 AFN, and 25% of the population earn more than 566,900 AFN.

Like the median salary, the 25th and 75th percentile salaries can be used to determine which quartile you fall into so that you know whether you are being paid well enough compared to others in your profession and location.

The difference between a median and an average salary

The median and average salary are both indicators you can use to see if you are being paid fairly based on the overall population.

  • If your salary is higher than the average and the median salary, you are earning well compared to others.
