Data Collection

ERI gathers data from 3 types of sources: surveys we conduct ourselves, surveys we purchase from other organizations, and reports from publicly traded organizations, such as proxies and 10-Ks.

Data Verification

After collecting the data, we conduct QA to ensure the data flowing into the analyses are of the highest quality.

Some examples of QA tasks are job matching by trained analysts, interviewing participants to double-check data that do not fall into parameters, and inspecting data to identify issues such as keying errors or misclassifications.


ERI conducts advanced analytics to accurately capture the full scope of an occupation and how it exists in the economy.

ERI is committed to using the best analysis for a given statistical task, including machine learning, meta-analysis, and regression.

These analyses have been validated against independently collected market data.

Quality Assurance

ERI analysts double-check the results for every job every quarter.

This process allows us to be confident in the data we publish.

ERI Results

The end result is a carefully curated dataset that reflects compensation rates with an unparalleled level of accuracy.

ERI provides a comprehensive database of compensation for over 8,000 job titles, 1,000 industries, and 9,000 locations.
