Introducing the first ever full-scale Government Relations Compensation Survey., provider of industry staples from Washington Representatives to the US Congress Handbook and Almanac of American Politics, has launched the most comprehensive research ever undertaken on salaries and compensation in the government relations industry.

As one of the most complex and misunderstood professional industries which includes a wide variety of professional focuses, specialties, and education levels, government relations has been vastly ignored in compensation reporting. has stepped in to fill this void and provide a new level of transparency by creating the Government Relations Compensation Industry Report specifically for government relations professionals.

The survey can be completed by any individual involved in government relations and advocacy work including registered lobbyists, policy experts, PAC staff, advocacy managers and more.

In addition to changes in compensation, this completely anonymous survey and comprehensive report will analyze compensation trends in the GR industry by:
