Format Options

While our online capabilities become more advanced each year, we understand many organizations prefer the convenience of a printed report. That’s why we’re continuing to provide several options for data output. You can still choose to receive data in a book. However if online is your preference, we have two options for you: Basic Edition and Custom Edition. With the variety of formats offered, you get the data you need — exactly how you want it.

Compdata Surveys


The printed report provides the essential data you need in a portable format. The book includes pay practice and benefit information, along with salary data for both industry-specific and benchmark job titles. Add the report to your bookshelf or share with others in your department.

Not ready to give up the printed report, but curious to find out what the online version can do for you? Try both the online and book formats for just a small additional fee!

Survey Says…

The salary surveys compiled by Compdata Surveys are a valuable tool we use to stay current with market data. We are a non-profit and Compdata Surveys has provided data on some positions that are hard to find. The customer service is also phenomenal, and the cost is reasonable for what is provided. I would highly recommend them to any type of organization as they have comprehensive surveys for all industries and several ways to break out the data!Deb S.Director of Human ResourcesNorthwestern College
We use Compdata Surveys and the non-profit sector data to make sure we are on target for our new exempt positions and job offers. We use it almost weekly if not more frequently. A must for HR Directors or HR managers engaged in comp studies or salary recommendations. The price is more than reasonable.Ricardo C.Associate Vice Chancellor for Human ResourcesTarrant County College
I was so excited to find your market database. I’ve worked for large manufacturing companies where surveys were a huge cost. I’m at a smaller company where we want to build a market-based pay structure, and you have no idea how long I looked for you! Your pricing is incredible for the amount of data you provide. I’m just thrilled I can go out to my organization with credible, targeted data without having to pay another survey company 10 times what your data costs.Andrea O.Vice President, Human ResourcesPLZ Aeroscience

I love Compdata!  I trust them to have accurate data and use them in my current position as HR Director for a defense contractor.  I used them previously when working for a major manufacturer.  Their customer service is excellent, they are efficient and thorough, and they go the distance when you need information quickly or in a specific format.Paula S.Sr. Director, Human Resources FNH USA, LLC
