Sampling method used in our surveys. When collecting data for a job, data are gathered on salaries paid to separate individuals. The resulting statistics give a reliable indication of the spread of salaries for the job. We do not gather data on the basis of the average salary paid to a number of employees in a particular job within organisations. The results using this latter method tend to understate the spread in salaries for the job because the underlying spread in the salaries is masked by the averaging process. Our statistics therefore represent a sampling of much larger groups of employees to determine the pay characteristics of the larger groups.

Sample sizes and reliability: The level of reliability that can be placed on the results of a survey is related to how homogenous or uniform the group being surveyed is. The less uniform the group the larger the sample size required to achieve a certain level of reliability about the characteristics of group. However reliability by itself is not always sufficient for the practical application of survey results. If the group being sampled is so disparate that a very large sample is required to achieve an acceptable level of reliability, then most probably the lack of uniformity in the group means that the group is not sufficiently well focused to match the job for which you are seeking information.
