RE: New Salary Survey Reports added

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I think the relative numbers between regions are valuable here-unless one
region exaggerates more than the other.  I don't see the advantage for
anyone to over or under-report his/her salary since the survey is conducted
with confidentiality.

Also note, obviously, Public employee salary reported is lower than the
private sector; however, the benefits could add about 35% to the base
salary.

I wouldn't trust the accuracy of this at all. Convenient or not, it is
unverified and based strictly on the honesty of the respondent.

A business owner would report low salaries. An employee would tend to report
high salaries. There is absolutely no accountability here.
