Salary Surveys»

Salary surveys show a salary lag of between 16% and 40% for three state scientific classifications that are representative of most state scientists and based on educational achievement: Bachelor of Arts; Master of Arts; and Ph.D. Differences in percentages are due to the timing and methodology employed in each survey.

The Like Pay For Like Work comparison is for scientific classifications that historically have had salary equity with state engineering classifications.
