# Wolfram|Alpha is On the Job with Occupation and Wage Data

We have been highlighting ways that Wolfram|Alpha can be a useful tool in your everyday life, and we believe you will find our salary and wage data helpful in navigating your decisions in today’s job market. A lot of people are searching for full-time employment, relocating, exploring going back to school to change professions, or considering taking on multiple jobs. Many factors play into these decisions, and Wolfram|Alpha’s U.S. occupational salary data, and salary computations for local currencies, help you make informed choices.

Perhaps you are considering changing professions. In addition to supplying data on specific occupations, Wolfram|Alpha can compare U.S. occupational information for multiple jobs, including the median salary, the number of people employed at those jobs, and more. For example, here is the comparative information for a registered nurse, an elementary school teacher, and an accountant:

Wolfram|Alpha can compute hourly wages per working day, week, month, and year based on a 35- or 40-hour work week.

Here is an example of Wolfram|Alpha’s ability to compute salary equivalents, such as local currency conversions, time conversion, and exchange histories; in this case, for wages of 50,000 euros per year:

These are just a few examples of how Wolfram|Alpha can provide insightful wage and salary data to help you make confident decisions in today’s job market.

This site is coming along nicely it is so useful.

Is there any way to get the data for specific countries?

I tried with queries like “database administrator salary in Germany” without success.

My understanding is that currently the figures refer to US only.

Flavio,

Currently these figures are drawn from U.S. data only. We are adding to our system of knowledge all of the time Thank you for your comments!

WA gets better and better. I know this information will be useful to searchers and gives them exactly the results they want. Keep up the good work, and thanks!
