Planning Salary Survey: What Should You Earn?
"The single variable with the strongest correlation to salary is experience (years in the planning field). Median salary begins at $39,200 for those with less than 3 years experience, matches the grand median of $60,000 for those in the 10-14 year range, and rises to $85,000 for those with 30 years or more in the field." Based on nearly 10,000 responses, the American Planning Association/AICP 2004 Planners Salary Survey is a comprehensive look at compensation and benefits. Review a profile of qualifications and experience, see how variety of variables affect compensation, and use the interactive Salary Calculator to estimate what others are earning.
