Salary ranges

We already know that an Audiosual Technician can earn between 308,900 AFN and 858,100 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 Audiosual Technician in Afghanistan is 520,900 AFN. This is the middle value in the distribution of salaries.

What this means is that approximately 50% of the population earn less than 520,900 AFN, and 50% of the population earn more than 520,900 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.

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.
