In addition to the problem Dick Gaskill pointed out, there's the fact that
the survey was only for full-time employees. Although that's my category,
many tech writers are consultants/contractors. So it would be extremely
useful to have some sort of geographic + experience breakdown of typical
hourly fees for contractors. I'd also be interested in knowing if these
salary averages hold steady across differing industries/fields (e.g.,
aerospace, insurance, software development, manufacturing, medical) (oops!
I used "e.g."), or if they vary? I'm not criticizing the current (1997)
survey, just suggesting that these additional elements be considered for
the 1998 one.
