ERI's Executive Compensation Assessor® & Survey reports privately held and publicly traded companies remuneration levels with the ability to retrieve and review source documents. Over 500 job titles have been studied over time (many since 1977). Data are derived from 14,000 US publicly-traded corporations' proxies and 10-K annual reports (1994 to present), 8-Ks, digitized public records including the US SEC, Canadian SEDAR® Data, OCR of US IRS returns, ERI Salary Survey's patented online surveys, and licensed UK, Canadian, and US surveys and datasets.

ERI research saves subscribers time and expense, providing analyses for Board planning of annual cash compensation (salary plus short-term incentives), long-term incentives, equity awards, pensions, non-qualified deferred compensation, benefits and other executive allowances. This research represents the largest executive salary survey ever conducted. The Assessor is available in 2 versions - Professional (for US/Canada executive compensation planning) and Consultant (for use in SOX, litigation support, UK/Canada/EU analyses, and reasonable compensation analyses).
