ERI's Salary Assessor® & Survey is an easy-to-use software program that reports "up to the present day" competitive wage, salary, and incentive survey data. Each of over 6,100 jobs has been studied over time (many since 1967). Analyses are derived from millions of data points gathered from digitized public records including the US SEC, OCR of US IRS returns, ERI Salary Survey's patented online surveys (78 US industries in 5 countries), and licensed UK, Canadian, and US salary surveys and datasets. Job titles and descriptions are enhanced with ERI's daily reading of 35% of worldwide online job postings; under license, advertised (high) salaries are not incorporated.

ERI research saves subscribers time and expense, providing analyses of competitive pay defined by 500 (over 9,300 with the Geographic Assessor) areas in North America and Europe, 1,200 industries, and infinite organization sizes. Six thousand corporate subscribers, including most US Fortune 500 companies, use Assessor data in planning salaries (some for over 20 years). The Assessor survey research is available in 2 versions - Professional (for US/Canada non-management salary planning) and Consultant (for salary planning with executive data, US/UK/EU planning, board governance, and litigation support).
