Survey Name   2013 InformationWeek U.S. IT Salary Survey: Insurance

Survey Date   January 2013

Region   United States

Number of Respondents    625 insurance IT professionals in 2013, composed of 351 IT staff and 274 IT managers

Purpose   To track IT salary and compensation trends from the perspective of those on the front lines, ­InformationWeek conducts an annual U.S. IT Salary Survey. Now in its 16th year, it’s the largest employee-based IT salary survey in the country. Last year 13,880 full-time IT professionals completed the Web-based survey. This year 14,074 took part. The goal of this trendable study is to measure various aspects of compensation, benefits and job ­satisfaction. This report focuses on the 625 insurance IT professionals who participated in the survey.

Methodology   The survey was designed by InformationWeek and fielded online. The survey was promoted in ­InformationWeek’s daily and weekly newsletters. In addition, email invitations with an embedded link to the survey were sent to qualified IT professionals from InformationWeek Business Technology Network print, newsletter and events databases. The survey was fielded from November 2012 to January 2013.

The information in this report is based on responses from 625 insurance IT professionals. Unemployed and part-time workers were excluded from these results, as were respondents from outside the United States. This report uses median rather than mean or average figures for salary and percentage salary changes to eliminate distortions caused by extremes at the high and low ends of the responses.
