1 The non-exempt salary comparison is based upon institutions within the state of Indiana. Note that for 2009 the source of the data changed from CompData to the Mercer Metropolitan Benchmark Survey - therefore there is no comparison to prior years. The mid-level salary comparison is with CIC institutions. The upper administrative salary comparison is with National Doctoral Institutions.
