How much does a human factors and ergonomics professional earn in the US?

The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) has surveyed its members through emails during April 2009 to obtain information about monetary compensations along with non-monetary benefits of its members presumably working in the field of HF&E. The results recently published in a HFES report, reveal interesting information about this profession’s compensation. According to this study human factors professionals’ average salaries ranged from a low $88K in the Mid-central to a high $118K in the Northwest region of the US and vary little by market sector with a slight advantage in the for profit industry.
According the finding the average salary of the professionals with a doctorate degree (54% of the respondents) is 18% to 28% higher than professionals with a master’s degree (40% of the respondents).
90% of the professionals receive employer-provided health and retirement benefits.
The full report is available online at hfes.org. The full report provides breakdowns of salary by employment size, market sector, highest degree earned, and time in position. Demographic information on the respondents is also reported.
