  1. OSU Extension Salary Study Chris Igodan Brian McClain Stephen Wright October 19, 2006

  2. Salary Study Charge • The Salary Study Committee was appointed by OSUE Human Resources and the OSUE Administrative Cabinet. • The committee was charged with expanding on the initial salary study conducted by Chris Igodan.

  3. Data Used Data used in this comparative salary study was taken from the following sources: • Analyses of Cooperative Extension Service Positions,USDA, December 2005 • OSUE Human Resources • U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational Employment Statistics, May 2005 • The Ohio Education Association

  4. Study Limitations • Information received from various Government surveys were not always reported to reflect the organizational structure of OSU Extension, making regional/national comparisons difficult. • Descriptive comparisons do not explain or predict the reasons for salary variations – caution is warranted when making decisions strictly based on comparisons.

  5. Research Questions • How do OSUE Educator salaries compare to other Extension salaries at the National Scale? • How do OSUE Educator salaries compare to other Extension salaries within the North Central Region? • How do OSUE Educator salaries compare to similar professional teaching salaries in Ohio? • How do OSUE Educator salaries compare to salaries for all Ohio occupations (a one value comparison)?

  6. Comparative Analysis What salaries did we compare? • We compared mean salaries of Ohio teaching occupations with those of OSUE Educators. • We compared mean salaries of Ohio Teachers (K-1 to K-12), having Master’s Degrees, with OSUE Educator salaries. • We compared mean salaries of OSU Extension Educators with North Central Region/States

  7. Procedures • Mean salaries were calculated using Excel and Jump-Statistical Software. • Thematic mapping was used to describe the extent to which OSUE Educator salaries deviate from other States at the national scale.
