EMWA members were surveyed in late 2012 and early 2013 about their current salary levels. A total of 320 individuals responded. Most were women, between 31 and 50 years of age, and native speakers of English or German. About half had 2–10 years of experience. Mean annual income was €61 505 (median €54 000), more than 10% higher than reported in 2006. Men earned more than women and income rose with work experience and responsibility. Highest academic degree and native language did not appear to influence income, but members with an EMWA Professional Development Programme certificate earned more than those who did not. The results suggest that salary depends more on professional skills and knowledge than on formal requirements and might be increased by gaining experience and expanding professional skills; however, formal conclusions about influencing factors cannot be made because statistical comparisons were not performed due to potential sample bias.
