Of the more than 700 individuals who responded to the 2013 CDI salary survey, most respondents (25.2%) earn $60,000–$69,999 annually. Although that’s down slightly from the 2012 survey results in which 25.9%  reported earning that amount, it’s not bad news. Why? The number of individuals earning $10,000 less ($50,000–$59,999) decreased by 4% while the number of individuals reportedly earning $10,000 more ($70,000–$79,999) increased by nearly the same percentage, illustrating a clear upward shift in salaries.

In addition, this year's salary survey shows clear growth in CDI career paths and compensation with managers/directors earning more, those with advanced schooling earning more, and those with advanced certifications earning more as well. Furthermore, this year's report provides analysis of CDI salaries by state, region, and municipality type.

ACDIS members have complete access to the survey results in the October edition of the CDI Journal.
