Wages and Benefits
The total wages paid by Miami County’s private sector employers in 2008 was over $1,210,000,000. The total wages paid by the goods producing sector (manufacturing, construction and mining) was over $542,000,000 and wages in the service sector exceeded $666,000,000.
The excellent highway system means that there is very little impediment to commuting to work. Approximately 70% of workers commute less than 30 minutes to work.
Our wages are very competitive, partially due to our affordable housing, utility and insurance rates. Over 72% of our housing units are owner-occupied. Seventy six percent of renters pay less than $800 a month for their rental unit.
Wage, Salary & Benefits Survey
The Miami County Chambers Human Resource Council Wage, Salary & Benefits Survey is a cooperative effort of the Covington, Piqua, Tipp City and Troy chambers. This cooperative effort of neighboring chambers, not only promotes a closer relationship amongst the Miami County Chambers, but more importantly, offers the advantage of sharing our resources to provide better programming and resource information for our members.
The Wage, Salary & Benefits Survey is offered free of cost to participating businesses. It is also available to others for a nominal fee.
The last survey was completed in 2010. All information provided by participating businesses remains confidential. A special 'Thank you' to the Survey Team and the Troy City Schools for preparing the survey.
For more information or to participate in the 2012 Wage, Salary, & Benefits Survey, please contact the Troy Development Council at (937) 339-7809.
