With IDA's salary calculator, you'll get a good foundation for your next salary negotiation - whether you are negotiating in your current job, negotiating an employment contract for a future job, or looking for your first position as a new graduate.

Data used in IDA's salary calculator

Data for private sector employees: Is taken from the annual salary statistics, in which members share data about their salary and employment terms. 
Data for public sector employees: Is based on data from public salary databases.
IDA's salary calculator uses a quantile regression model to calculate your salary. The model takes into account various parameters that can impact salaries, such as year of graduation and industry, both of which tend to influence salary levels more than, for instance, geography. In this way, IDA's salary calculator gives a more realistic image of average salaries.
