After taking a quick look at the print version of the salary survey I am struck by the following.
The disparity in pay levels between those with the highest level of education and those with the lowest is about $5043.
The disparity in pay levels between males and females is approximately $5641.
In the nine categories of average salary by job title/region four of the highest paid positions are in Australia, two in Great Britain, two in the Pacific and one in the Southwest regions of the U.S. However, if one looks only at the U.S. then the results are four in the Pacific, three in the Southwest and two in the Atlantic region.
In the ten categories of average salary by industry/region six of the ten highest paid industries are in Austraila, two in the Pacific region of the U.S., and one each in Great Britain and the Atlantic region of the U.S. However, if one looks only at the U.S. then the results are seven in the Pacific, two in the Southwest and one in the Atlantic region.
Bottom line? Move to Australia, Great Britain, the Pacific or the Southwest region of the U.S. to increase your chances of getting a better paying job. I'm betting that the one drawback could be the cost of living might well be higher.
Very interesting, yes?
