To properly allocate cities within each location tier, Pave completed an in depth data analysis on the different cities within the United States. We then grouped the cities based on locations that had similar labor force dynamics, market trends, and cost of living. Additionally we had numerous HR professionals assess our tiers. After sufficient alignment between the data and professionals, the current location tiering was finalized. This said, Pave’s data team is constantly analyzing our data and reserves the right to adjust the tiering when the data suggest it’s appropriate.
For more specific location data you can also select a location from the “Metros” section within our Benchmarking tool. This will allow you to see data specific to a certain metro such as the SF Bay Area or NYC Metro. You can also inquire about our premium data feature, Location Insights, which opens up 60+ additional countries and metros! Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
