2018 Actuarial Salary Survey Graphs

The following charts compare the results of our 2018 Salary Survey to the results all the way back from our 2012 and up Salary Surveys.

We encourage your participation in the survey. All entries are strictly confidential, and they enable us to help you stay informed about the salaries and trends in your profession.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: Respondents for this survey were selected from among those who have volunteered to participate in an online survey or in recruiting databases. The data have not been weighted to reflect the demographic composition of the actuarial community. Because the sample is based on those who initially self-selected for participation rather than a probability sample, no estimates of sampling error can be calculated. The results should be interpreted as directional in nature, and may not be generalizable to an individual’s employment/compensation situation.
