You're welcome.

I'll venmo you $1.00 if you can give me a better, credible, and usable salary search that is free.

PWR use this data to determine pay for sponsoring foreigners. Lawyers use this. Ever seen a lawyer use Glassdoor, Payscale, or LinkedIn to do their processing? Lol.

"Oh I don't need sponsoring."

Look up a position you know that is paid "fair." For title/level and market/location, you can't beat this. Sure, you can neg with experience, company need, and expertise... +- 10-15% and 15-25% is expected.

    Hmmm...when sponsoring visas you're usually looking for the lowest "market rate" salary you can find to put on the form. There's a reason the lawyers are not using Glassdoor and if's not because there are better salaries elsewhere.

      The NPWC determines PW and collects all data on all jobs in all industries in all regions in the US. To challenge this, survey must be recent, reflect area of intended employment, job description/BFOQ must match, wage date must be collected from all industries, based on an arithmetic mean, include methodology used to show collection and is reasonable/consistent and recognized with statistical standards and principles in producing PW, and mapping of the levels of surveyed positions.

      Sure. And when I look for the appropriate salary for a software engineer, do you want to take into account people banging out web forms if you're looking to hire superstars? If you're at the low end of the market this may be good or if you're looking to lowball salaries for visa applicants. Looking at salaries at competitive companies is much better for most situations, though.

    Meh, lower than Glassdoor. They also throw a bunch of different skill sets into the same bucket. Arithmetic mean across California will be surely different than the mean across Santa Clara county.
