Salary Data

We ask respondents to provide salary information. Not all respondents provide this information. In an effort to gather as much salary information as possible, with the Class of 2011 we began asking respondents for whom we did not have salary data to provide salary information based on a salary range. In the case where a respondent answered by selecting a salary range, we used the midpoint of the range when reporting salaries to NALP.
