About the Survey

The wage and benefit survey is sponsored by the Middle Tennessee Industrial Development Association (MTIDA) and the USDA as well as regional partners* and local chambers and economic development organizations. The purpose of the survey is to provide local economic development officials and human resource managers a clear understanding of the compensation structure of the key occupations in the region.

Information based on a survey of over 300 industries who employ more than 86,000 Tennesseans in the mid-state. With an email response rate of 22%, the results of this survey provide a picture of the compensation structure in the region in the summer of 2019.

*Regional sponsoring partners include the Upper Cumberland Development District, the South Central Tennessee Development District, the Greater Nashville Regional Council, the Nashville Chamber of Commerce, The Highlands Economic Partnership, Tennessee Central Economic Authority, Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development, and Tennessee Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
