Using the Competitive Wage Analysis In the table above, the wage rates highlighted in yellow represent wage scales which may have to be paid new hires based on high or low regional demand for each of the key occupations. The median and percentile salary ranges are actual wage levels for those occupations, across all industry groups, within the region.

Being able to use this data is important because relative demand, coupled with the competitive wage percentiles can help a business determine new hire wages and better gauge likely cost of labor.
