The result was driven by the fall in the average salary in the service sector. See the breakdown by sector:

- Construction: BRL 2,024.84 (+0.8%);

The data from Caged refer only to jobs with a formal contract, and the companies themselves fill in the information in their own system. The survey does not capture data from the informal labor market, such as the IBGE’s Pnad Contínua (Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics), for example.
As companies can update hiring and termination information retroactively, the data may vary from month to month.
