The Skills Ready Wage & Salary Report provides employment and wage information for your labor market that includes all of the occupations in the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) System - nearly 800 occupations. Wage information is shown for the 10th, 25th, median, 75th, and 90th percentiles.
The Report can be used by local businesses to compare their wages against other companies in your labor market, and possibly revise their wage rates. For potential expansion projects, local companies can see critical employment data for the occupations they need to hire.
For business looking to relocate or expand to your region, they can use this information to determine labor availability and see the current wages for the occupations needed for their project.
Economic developers can use the Wage & Salary Report to help local businesses determine if there is a local labor shortage or if their wages are low compared to other companies in your labor market.
The data in the Report comes primarily from quarterly data issued by Bureau of Labor Statistics. Quarterly, semi-annual, and annual updates are available for the Report.
