2021 Wage Study

The Dublin-Laurens County Development Authority partnered with the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia to conduct a community-wide wage study. This project was a follow-up to the Workforce Development Strategic Plan developed in late2020 and early 2021. The study's goal was to provide employers in Dublin-Laurens County with local data to help their recruitment and retention practices. While the majority of wage data was focused on entry-level positions, company wide benefits and policy information was also collected.

The 2021 Dublin-Laurens County Wage Study was conducted through a series of phone interviews with company officials from a broad cross section of local employers. Data were collected from 16 companies ranging in size from 10 employees to over 300, accounting for a total of over 2,400 jobs. Detailed occupational information was collected for about 1,300 entry-level positions. This report contains information on wages, benefits, and employment policies. All data are shared in a way to maintain individual company privacy.
