It’s no secret that salary comparisons by location across the United States can fluctuate. From cost of living to labor market specifics, it can be tricky to make sense of the ever-changing differences for why and how salaries differ across cities. With an increasing number of companies having operations in multiple locations and the growing number of remote employees, you need credible salary differential information to stay competitive.
The US Geographic Salary Differential Tool will help you evaluate employee pay using both 2020 actual increases and 2021 projected increases while also translating the rates of pay in one location to comparable rates in another. Accurately determine the cost of your staff with pay differentials for 1,996 cities. Compare your compensation data at the city or national level using information from more than 15,500,000 employee observations.
