Well, the results are in from The
Journal's first annual salary survey.
Out of the 500 surveys we mailed
in mid-October to subscriber/contractors
in New England and New
York, we received 104 by our
deadline, which we consider a
very healthy response. (Thanks
for your cooperation.)
We've broken the findings into
four categories (1) business profiles,
(2) salaries, (3) benefits, and
(4) comments. In some cases, the
total number of responses exceeds
the number of surveys returned
due to readers checking multiple

About half employ three or fewer
