Our Benchmarking product features a Sample Size column to help provide additional context regarding the number of compensation records included each Benchmarking search.
Benchmarking results are bucketed into the following Sample Sizes:
- Highly Relevant Sample: Contains more than 30 compensation samples and is considered highly representative of the market.
- Relevant Sample: Contains 11-30 samples and is considered representative of the market.
- Small Sample: Contains 3-10 samples and represents a search that can be expanded to obtain a more relevant sample.
- Insufficient Sample: Contains less than three samples and represents data that is not yet in production due to an insufficient sample size. This also represents a search that can be expanded to obtain a more relevant sample.
