The Business and Economic Research Center (BERC) at Middle Tennessee State University conducted a 40-county wage and benefit survey in Middle Tennessee between May and September 2019.

The wage and benefit survey was sponsored by Middle Tennessee Industrial Development Association (MTIDA) and USDA as well as regional partners and local chambers and economic development organizations. The purpose of the survey is to provide local economic development officials and human resource managers a clear understanding of the compensation structure of the key occupations in the region. Reporting and analysis for the survey was designed to include both the full 40-county Middle Tennessee area and targeted subsets of counties.
