The referenced article (accessible to non-members) addresses some of the questions raised in our discussion.

For example:

"Fourth, the BLS survey focuses on the duties of employees, not on their titles. Titles can be misleading because
they do not consistently reflect responsibilitiesâfor example, one companyâs manager is anotherâs director. The BLS
data show how other employees with similar duties are compensated, and therefore provide a more effective basis
for comparison."


"The 2005 STC salary survey shows the mean annual salary for the entire United States as $67,520. The BLS data for the same year report a mean annual salary of $52,817. What could account for this discrepancy?

A number of thingsâforemost among them an overrepresentation of higher-salaried employees in STCâs survey."
