What's new in 2018
In 2018 this survey will be split into two distinct questionnaires — US and Canada — in order to gather and report information most relevant to each country. If your organization has offices and/or mine sites in both the US and Canada, please plan to participate in both editions for the appropriate locations. If you have business operations in Canada learn more about our Canada survey.

Salary Survey Methodology
Mercer surveys are designed using the most accurate and up-to-date market data practices. Data is collected from HR professionals at participating organizations and then analyzed for validity, thoroughness, and market representation based on the organization's size, structure, geographic region, or a combination of these factors. A minimum number of incumbents, organizations, and distinct organizations are required in order to report each data element. If minimums are not met, the market data is suppressed, ensuring you the highest level of data confidentiality.
