Hello richardweddle-ga,

Are you familiar with the salary survey information available for
purchase from the National Association of Calleges and Employers
(NACE)? They compile the information you're looking for. Press
releases sometimes provide partial exerpts from these reports.

Please let me know if this will meet your needs.

Hello richardweddle-ga,

Thank you for accepting the NACE links as an acceptable response to
your question. Here are some additional links. Most of the articles I
found in the newspapers are based on the NACE press releases.

Depending on what kind of salary information you need, you can also
look for entry-level salaries for specific jobs or industries. These
are sometimes available from surveys conducted by industry
associations or trade journals.

Most colleges survey their new graduates a few months after graduation
and post the survey results on their websites. These might also
provide useful salary information for yu.

Best wishes for your project.

Hmmm ...   that's about 5% pa inflation over the last 40 years, 6.3
times my starting salary.  But then a nice house cost $ 30,000.  The
dollar ain't worth what it once was.
