NEW for 2019 Salary Survey Based on User Suggestions

New Jobs in 2019 Survey:

This year, we have added a number of new benchmark jobs based on user feedback.  The new jobs are shown in bold fonts wherever you find list of jobs in the instructions.

Job Descriptions and Codes

To begin completing this survey, match the positions in your institution to the thumbnail Job Descriptions and Codes in the “2019 Participant Instruction Packet.”  The job descriptions in the survey encompass general knowledge, skills and abilities of persons who perform this job in any given organization.

No job will match the survey job description 100%. Therefore, report jobs in your organization that match at least 80% or more of the survey job description. Few organizations, if any, are able to match every single job in their organization to a survey job description. Do not worry if you are unable to match each position in your institution to a survey job description enclosed.
