25th Percentile Salary Guidelines

Position Salary Guidelines 

The data below is derived from the NATA 2018 Salary Survey. All job postings should meet or exceed the 25th percentile for the appropriate job setting. Any postings that do not meet this expectation are subject to review. Employers should know that the pandemic halted progress of the Salary Survey's newest iteration in 2020, and NATA will continue the research at a future date. Factors like cost of living increases, etc. should be taken into consideration and figures should be adjusted appropriately when reviewing these results and determining salaries.
