The US Department of Labor’s “Salary Finder” Toolkit is a great place to start. Comprehensive Salary Data Salary Finder provides average wages for more than 800 occupations. See how wages compare in your local area, your state, or across the nation. With Salary Info, you can: • View data for an occupation at the zip code or state level • View high, median, and low wages for the occupation you select • Switch between hourly and yearly wages for the occupation • View the latest data comparing national and local wages • Explore additional information on an occupation How do I get started? Go to http://www.careeronestop.org/businesscenter/ and click on “Toolkit” and Salary Finder in the drop down box. Get started by entering an occupation and location. Enter an occupation by typing a job name or keyword in the search box, or by clicking “List of occupations” to browse occupation titles. Enter a location by typing a city (you must include the state) or state or ZIP code into the search box. If you enter a city or ZIP code, your results will reflect the large regional area that your city or ZIP code is part of. Once you click “Search” you’ll see a table showing the low, median, and high salaries–both hourly and yearly–for the location you entered, as well as the state and national comparison. What is the difference between High, Median, and Low salary information? • “High” reflects the salary that 90% of workers earn less than and 10% earn more than. • “Median” reflects the salary that 50% of workers earn less than and 50% earn more than. • “Low” reflects the salary that 10% of workers earn less and 90% earn more than. Yearly wage data applies only to workers with fulltime, year-round schedules. The hourly wage data includes information for part-time and part-year workers.
