Salary Information

"A link to the appropriate section of the Bureau of Labor Statistics Website that provides information on regional data on starting salaries in all major occupations" on our Web site is a requirement of the Higher Education Opportunity Act - 2008.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics' National Compensation Survey's "Wages" Web page offers regional information by "work level." For the example, see the section on New York.

Occupational Employment Statistics---including salary ranges---are available in the "May 2010 Metropolitan and Nonmetropolitan Area Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates / New York-White Plains-Wayne, NY-NJ Metropolitan Division".

To research salary information in context; find out about a specific occupation or topic; or browse occupations, see the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH).

To search salary information and occupational information via a Web site that draws information from sources that are coordinated with the U.S. Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Education, see O*Net Online.

Additional salary information—along with many other online resources—is also available on our Internet Resources page under the heading of "Salary Information."
