    1. The salaries vary a lot by region.

      You can have a look at SPIE's global salary report for more details.

  3. When I look e.g. at the orange line, for me it is hard to believe that the salary drops by about 50% within 1 month in e.g. Jan 13 just to rise about 50% within 1 month in Apr 13. Are there really enough people working e.g. as Pixel Design Engineer (whose salary is known) to make any reasonable statistic? Never trust a statistic that you haven't faked yourself...

    1. It is probably because one of the (few) companies whose salaries were being tracked had a layoff, or a shut down of some sort that lowered the average.

    2. biz dev managers may have a large variable part in their salary based on bonuses and bonuses may widely vary based on a single big contract
