The survey report provides the job number, job title, job description, experience, minimum education or certification, and exempt or nonexempt status. Data includes the number of organizations reporting data and the total number of employees for each job. Wage information reported for hourly base pay and hourly total compensation includes: average pay, 10th percentile, 25th percentile, median, 75th percentile, and 90th percentile. In accordance with Department of Justice wage survey guidelines for safe harbor, results are provided where at least five organizations reported wage data. All individual participants' data is kept confidential.
METHOD OF DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS
The survey data was gathered by mailing and e-mailing questionnaires. Participants were asked to report data where at least 80% of the duties described are performed by the incumbent(s).
As with any survey, the information contained in the report must be interpreted with caution. Even with proper job matches, the reported wages reflect differentials based on a broad range of seniority and experience, job responsibility, organizational size, geographical differences and differences in pay policies. Users should take these differences into consideration when establishing pay rates. Organizations should be especially careful given the current labor market conditions.
