Subject: So, What Are Your SAS Skills Worth, Anyway?
While doing some research for my upcoming PharmaSUG 2011 (http://www.pharmasug.org/ ) keynote speech, It's Not Easy Being A SAS Programmer, I came upon this interesting salary survey:
...which is one of the few that I have seen that actually denotes SAS as a "Popular Skill" and has a listing for SAS programmers. Nice to know that SAS is a popular skill and that somebody is tracking the average salary of SAS professionals. But, I am not sure that this link provides the ammunition you need to storm into your boss's office and demand that long overdue raise:)
All, best of luck in all your SAS endeavors!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
