I’d be interested to know an approximate location for each salary reported. In the end of the day, it’s all about how much money is left after the bills are paid. Making $30-40 k more at a location where a 3 br house cost 500-700k more might be not as good as it first seems.

I just posted some details from the 2020 salary survey including a salary per region chart. Plus I just added a cost of living map for reference.

"Northeast" isn't useful. There is a big difference between NYC vs Boston vs nowhere VT.

New York is part of Mid-Atlantic. See the map below of what I used for reference.

First time I've ever seen NY and NJ as part of Mid-Atlantic.

But my statement still stands. Big difference between Boston metro and Burlington metro.

I agree, we just don't have much data on that. We honestly didn't get any responses from Boston Area, only two of our responses from CT and ME fall within the North East region.

Would love to see how people are working in their fields for the last two years. Many of my colleagues work from home, while I have to be on-site every single day throughout 2020 and this year - telework is not possible. Lately I have been approached by some recruiters with remote work arrangement, but with extensive travel.

Hi! I noticed that the environmental fields show the electrical fields, so I typed in my own.

Took the liberty of formatting the tabs. Added a region column in each field so people can list what state they are in, then what region they are in based on the map I put next to the data. Made the columns so you can sort each one. Makes it easy to sort them and say "Oh, so this is what others in my region with this amount of experience are making!"
