ERI Salary Surveys’ full line of 2012 industry and job function compensation surveys for the United States and Canada are available for purchase starting August 2. These are true salary surveys, reporting participant data gathered during the present and prior year (October 2011 – April 2012), complemented by two additional sections of data for comparison purposes. The result is up to three survey analyses per job, including ERI Assessor Series data and public datasets.

Each survey details one benchmark job per page and is ideal for salary planning purposes for those who need real employer-provided data accompanied by a list of survey participants and sources. No attempt is made to alter incumbent data as reported other than to normalize collected compensation amounts to a common date. Data are shown for means, medians, and percentile cuts for annual salary, incentive/variable pay, and total direct annual compensation. Incumbent counts and a rate of error are also provided for each applicable database.

Survey information is solicited through traditional mail, email, and online questionnaires. Each data submission is thoroughly screened by ERI Salary Surveys’ team of experienced researchers prior to inclusion in a survey.

Surveys are available for online purchase at, ranging in price from $489 to $689. Participation is not required to purchase the full report. From the Food and Beverage Manufacturing Salary Survey to the All Nonprofits Salary Survey, ERI Salary Surveys covers a wide range of industries and nonprofit sectors, more than 150 in all. Our newest job function survey, the Physicians Salary Survey, is available for both the U.S. and Canada. With increased participation since last year’s release, nearly 40 Canadian salary surveys are now offered (national results only). U.S. surveys are reported by state or national results.
