The Pulp and Paper Manufacturing Salary Survey documents market-based pay data for 8 executive and 114 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):
