Survey methodology

The Institute of Packaging Professionals’ 2008 Salary Survey was developed in cooperation with Gros Executive Recruiters and media partner Packaging World magazine, with market research by Kane Consulting. The information provided in this report was generated by a questionnaire developed and posted to the IoPP Web site between Jan. 13 and Feb. 13, 2009. Both IoPP members and nonmembers participated in the study, with 1,637 usable replies received.

Seventy-nine percent of respondents were male; 21% female. Thirty-eight percent of the 1,599 respondents to a question about location indicated they work in the North Central Regions, while 19% work in the Northeast (the New England and Mid-Atlantic). Twelve percent of respondents were from the West, 9% from the South Atlantic, 7% from the South Central, with another 15% responding from international locations.
