The Central Statistical Office of Poland publishes a report every two years, in which it diagnoses the labor market. Among other indicators, they publish the mode of the distribution of wages, in painful detail (up to a grosz, worth around a quarter of a cent). For instance for 2017 it was 2074.03 PLN worth at the time of writing 548.6 USD (source tweet in Polish).
These statistics always resonate strongly with a lot of my friends, however I have doubts. Having a background in statistics but none in economy, I criticize this indicator as being excessively susceptible to noise. I expect very low correlation between the frequency of wage equal X PLN and X+0.01 PLN and as such conveying very little information about the labor market as a whole. I could see this indicator useful if applied to a reasonably quantized histogram (which however raise the question where should the bin edges be). On the other hand, if somebody does not wish to look at the market as a whole, I could imagine some creative uses of this value.
I would like to ask the community if it is aware of any meaningful uses of the aforementioned in economic research, and if so, at which degree of quantization.
