Methodology

Compensation data is collected online or through electronic means. 

All submissions to WCBC are reviewed thoroughly. Any missing or inappropriate data is verified before being included into the compensation database. If WCBC finds any data to be “extreme”, the data may be removed from the survey sample.

Note: Reports are offered exclusively for the internal compensation planning activities of individual employers. Reports are not available to libraries, career placement centers, HR consulting firms or any other entity that could re-sell the data, make it available to the general public or use the data in its commercial activities. WCBC reserves to right to accept or decline participation/purchase requests.
