ERI's founder first developed the concepts
related to the use of simple linear regression models for area wage
and salary differentials in 1974. ERI's present multiple
regression techniques were developed in the late 1980s and are
continually refined each year. Cost of living (COL) models originated in
1989 as the result of subscriber requests that ERI research and report
area cost differentials in addition to wage differentials. COL
analyses were further in demand because the Bureau of Labor Statistics discontinued its Urban Family of Four Index. ERI methodology has
benefited greatly in recent years due to the refinement of analyses, as
well as the increasing availability of survey data relating to
salaries, benefits, and costs.
Research Institute primarily serves private industry. Subscribers include corporate compensation, relocation,
