The 2015 IndustryWeek Salary Survey was conducted online via emailed invitations to subscribers. The survey took place from November 2014 to January 2015. A total of 1,771 surveys were returned. After the data were cleaned (removing largely incomplete surveys, duplicates and a handful of non-U.S. subscribers, primarily) 1,441 people turned in responses from the 2015 survey. Respondents were not compensated but were offered the chance to provide candid comments regarding their salaries, occupations and employers. The candid comments may have been lightly edited, primarily for spelling. All responses were anonymous.
Percentages may not equal 100% due to rounding.
