2018 Salary Survey Report Available

The National Association for Business Economics (NABE) conducted the first salary survey of its members in 1964. Every two years since—with the exception of 1966 and 1970— NABE has surveyed its members about their salaries and other occupational details. In May and 2018, NABE, in conjunction with The NABE Foundation (the charitable arm of NABE), conducted the current edition of the NABE Salary Survey. Questionnaires were sent via email to 2,016 members and to NABE Fellows; participants responded online. A total of 419 members responded with information on their compensation.

The median base salary of NABE members as of April 2018 was $150,000—a 14.3 percent increase from 2016. The mean (average) base salary was $170,784—an increase of 11.8 percent from that reported in 2016.
