Hey -

I need to do some research on salaries for different sorts of IT skill 
sets, & I'm wondering if anyone out there has a favorite source for that 
sort of data?  It might save me some time.

Mostly I want to answer questions like: "If we were to hire somebody to 
do X, how much should we expect to pay them?" and "Hey, while I'm 
looking, how does my salary stack up?"

I'll try to post links if I can find some interesting and useful sites.

Thanks in advance for any tips.


I'm following up on my original post with the little bit that I found 
with regard to salaries.  The only worthwhile data comes from the 
California Employment Development Department (EDD).

I found a neat little database where you can put in some parameters and 
get data for particular job classes for specific counties.  Here are 3 
samples (Sonoma County):

Network and Computer Systems Administrators 
Computer Programmers 
Computer and Information Systems Managers 

And Here 
is a link to the page where you can punch in whatever your parameters.

I'd still be curious if anyone else had any tips for information of this 
type.  I will post this on the SoCoSA site as well.
