Salary Survey: Frequently Asked Questions

Return to

  • Will NALP be publishing the results of this survey? When?

    Yes, we are planning to release the results of the survey after we have a chance to study the data. To get a sense of what the resulting report might look like, you can check out our 2014 Public Service Salary Report in the NALP bookstore. You can also look at all the press releases we've issued to accompany prior reports. Collectively, these documents should give you a good idea of what to expect.

    We plan to release the report later this year. We're not certain exactly when yet because we plan for the 2018 version of this report to be primarily web-based (although a PDF will also be available), and we anticipate that creating a web-based report many involve unforeseen complications that could delay us. Check back at, where you can expect to see an announcement when we eventually release this data.

  • How will I be able to get access to the report?

    Organizations that participate in the survey can request access to the report for free. Access to the survey will also be available as a benefit of membership to members. Otherwise, access to the report will be available for anyone who purchases a copy.

  • Who has access to our survey information? Will others be able to see our survey details?

    The report will aggregate survey responses in a way that avoids revealing the details of any organization's individual salary of benefits practices. (To get an idea how we have done this aggregation in the past, please look at the links in our answer to the first question, above.) Access to your answers to the questions in the survey is governed by language you can find on page 1 of the paper survey and page 2 of the electronic survey:

    Your information will remain confidential. No information that identifies specific organizations will be released to third parties without your permission.
  • If you have further questions on this subject, please contact us. We would be happy to discuss your concerns.
