The Center for Governmental Services at Auburn University provides summary data from its annual wage, salary and benefits surveys at no charge due to the generous sponsorship from the Alabama League of Municipalities (ALM) and the Association of County Commissions of Alabama (ACCA).
This survey is very useful for local governments who would like to be able to compare/access data from many areas within the state in one survey. It is also useful for those governments or public agencies who want local data for their region of the state.
