What does this measure?

The cumulative percentage change in average salary since 2000.

Why is this important?

Salaries are a gauge of overall economic health and a measure of the degree to which employees are sharing in the prosperity of a community. They also indicate the vitality of a region and its ability to compete and attract workers.

How is our region performing?

The total average salary in the region has increased 3% between 2000 and 2017. This compares to growth of 10% in the state and nation. Monroe experienced a slight increase in average salary, the lowest in the region. The largest increases in average salary were in Genesee and Orleans both at 13% and Ontario at 20%.

Notes about the data

Data are presented in constant 2017 dollars. Worker salaries are reported by place of work, not residence. Data for this indicator are expected to be released in the third quarter.
