FREE Salary Data, No Strings Attached: What a Deal!

Ann Bares had a great post yesterday at her blog Compensation Force. She posted the U.S. DOL Bureau of Labor Statistics' report on the May 2007 Metropolitan and Nonmetropolitan Area Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates.

As Anne states "This is essentially a free salary survey, and one which I have found it to be a good supplemental source of data. My experience is that it syncs up well with other sources that cost me a lot of money, and it has the additional benefit of covering metro areas and occupations that are not well covered by other professionally published compensation surveys."

So check out the report and bookmark it for future use. And, by the way, if you are involved in compensation and you are not reading Ann's blog on a daily basis (or whenever she posts) then shame on you because you are ignoring a wonderful resource.

Thanks, Mike, for passing on the word. I continue to be surprised at how few people are aware of this resource. There IS such a thing as a free lunch!
