According to Lydia Frank, “Despite the fact that 75 percent of people who negotiate their salary receive a pay increase, the majority of people have still never asked for a raise. PayScale’s new Salary Negotiation Guide addresses the questions and fears workers have about the negotiation process, and provides simple, clear advice to help them advocate for themselves.”

The data include the percentage of workers who have ever asked for a raise in their current field based on a sample size of 31,000 people who took the PayScale Salary Survey in 2014. For workers who have previously asked for a raise, PayScale provides the breakdown of whether they received the amount they asked for, received a portion of the amount they asked for, or did not receive any raise. For workers who have not previously asked for a raise, PayScale provides the breakdown of reasons why they didn’t ask.  PayScale provides the above information for Median Pay Ranges, Job, Industry, Degree Level, Generation, Major, State, City/Metropolitan Statistical Area  (MSA).
