Salary Survey Extra is a series of dispatches that give added insight into the findings of our annual Salary Survey. These posts contain previously unpublished Salary Survey data.

What does a certified IT professional make in Costa Rica or Algeria? Russia? Angola?

The end of 2022 is well within sight, as is the end of content from the 2022 Salary Survey. We’re sure that many, if not most, of our readers are plenty ready to let the 2022 survey lie untroubled in its grave and move ahead to the next one. You’re all about to get your wish, of course: The in-print and online debut of data from the 2023 Salary Survey is just weeks away.

Picking up where we left off last week, our final(ish) report of data from the 2022 Salary Survey concerns the average annual salary of certified IT professionals in non-U.S. nations. In our most recent piece, we looked at the salary figure for certified professionals in the 12 non-U.S. nations to have the biggest presence in the survey after the No. 1 through No. 12 group (profiled earlier this year).

The same caveats that we mentioned last time around apply, only to a slightly greater degree with this week’s list. Bear in mind that we’re dealing with small groups here: Each of the countries you’ll see represented this week accounted for fewer than 1 percent of all non-U.S. responses. So have a grain of salt on us to go with these figures.

For the sake of consistency, and also because it simplifies work on the calculating and reporting end of things, we ask survey participants to report their salary in U.S. dollars. So we have two sets of numbers here: the average salary in U.S. dollars, and a converted figure based on the current rate of exchange with each of the countries represented.

Take a look:
