Salaries of Scientists, Engineers, and Technicians. A Summary of Salary Surveys. Tenth Edition.
Babco, Eleanor L.
Salaries paid to beginning and experienced scientists, engineers, and technicians employed by industry, academic institutions, and all levels of government are detailed in this report. Both published and previously unpublished salary data from 57 surveys are included to provide a comprehensive picture of current salaries by sex, age, degree level, years since degree, geographic area, type of employer, principal work activity, and other variables. The data, presented in 172 tables and 8 charts, are organized into six sections (starting salaries; salaries of experienced scientific and technical personnel; salaries of engineers; salaries of technicians and technologists; federal salaries; and academic salaries). Each section is preceded by a brief discussion summarizing and highlighting the salary data therein. A detailed table of contents and cross index provide quick reference access to the tables. Each table includes its source, and a bibliography of sources provides both address and price of all published reports used in this compilation. Containing principally 1978-1981 data, the report also includes some salary data for earlier years. In every case where data are available by sex, this information has been included in the tables, some with breakdowns for minority and majority men and women. (Author/JN)
