Chemical Manufacturing Salary Survey

The Chemical Manufacturing Salary Survey reports compensation data for 134 benchmark jobs related to the transformation of organic and inorganic raw materials by a chemical process and the formulation of products. The survey includes inorganic chemicals; soap and cleaning compounds; paint, coating and adhesives; and fertilizer, pesticides, and other agricultural chemicals. The industry survey is available by geographic area (US Region, US National, or Canadian National) for $589.

The Chemical Manufacturing Salary Survey documents market-based pay data for 14 executive and 120 non-management salary benchmark jobs from up to three databases: digitized public sources, ERI Assessor Series data, and direct participants. The following information is reported for each job title (salary data are shown in means, medians, and percentile cuts):

  • Annual Salary
  • Incentive/Variable Pay
  • Total Direct Annual Compensation
  • Job Description
  • Graph with a Trend Line and Data Points
  • Selected Characteristics of the Occupation (SCO)

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. Data collection begins October and ends March. Survey results are published annually in July, with an effective data date of March 31 of the given survey year.
