ERI Salary Surveys will release its 2013 collection of industry and job function compensation surveys for the United States and Canada on August 1. These are true salary surveys, reporting participant data gathered during the present and prior year (October 2012 to April 2013), complemented by two additional sections of data for comparison purposes. The result is up to three survey sources per benchmark jobincluding ERI Assessor Series data and public datasets.

Surveys typically include more than 100 benchmark jobs, from support staff to executive positions. In addition to market-based pay data – annual salary, incentive/variable pay, and total direct annual compensation shown in means, medians, and percentiles – each benchmark job includes a job description, a graph with a trend line and data points, and the Selected Characteristics of the Occupation (optional). Sample page shown below is from the General Industry Salary Survey (U.S. national results).

From the Insurance Salary Survey to the All Energy and Mining Salary Survey, our reports cover a wide range of industries and nonprofit sectors, more than 150 in all. Industries include transportation, utilities, retail, and wholesale, to name a few.

Survey information is solicited through traditional mail, email, and online questionnaires. Each data submission is thoroughly screened by our team of experienced researchers prior to inclusion in a survey. No attempt is made to alter incumbent data as reported other than to normalize collected compensation amounts to a common date.

Our 2013 surveys range in price from $489 to $689 and may be purchased online at U.S. surveys are available with national or statewide results. The reports are delivered as a PDF or hardcopy document (with an additional printing and shipping charge applied).
