So if HR departments don't care for the STC data collection methodology and
typically don't avail themselves of the US government data, opting instead
for the Radford salary data, wouldn't it be much more valuable for STC to
license the Radford data and make it available to us?

I will confess I've never been privy to the Radford data (not ever having
been a hiring manager) but my impression is that it's pretty much the
standard in the HR world (that's just my impression with absolutely no data
to back it up).

Or, for that matter, what about Their data for technical writers
is at least subdivided into four experience levels: Technical Writer I
through Technical Writer IV. Individuals can access the data online but not
in a really useful form. For that, one needs to pay. Perhaps that might be a
source of useful data for STC, employers and individual technical writers.
