Median income for electrotechnology and information technology professionals jumped by more than 4 percent in 2014, the largest increase in the past five years, according to the 2015 IEEE-USASalary & Benefits Survey.
Median incomes from primary sources — salary, commissions, bonuses and net self-employment income — for U.S. IEEE members working full-time in their primary area of technical competence (job specialty) rose from $124,700 in the 2013 tax year to $130,000 in 2014.
The 4.25 percent increase comes a year after median income rose by its small percentage over the past five years, .56 percent.
The results are based on survey responses from 10,215 people. Here are median incomes since 2009:
