STC does a salary survey yearly. You can find it on They
break the salaries down by state, job title, and other things. Our local STC
(Huntsville, AL) and university technical communication program conducted a
salary survey last year. I found out that I was one of the lowest-paid
technical editors in the city! When I showed it to my boss (and offered to
find a job somewhere else), he brought my salary up to be more in line with
everyone else. I think surveys are great!
