Project Description: In collaboration with the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce, we are conducting a 7-county wage and benefits survey, encompassing Genesee, Shiawasee, Lapeer, Tuscola, Huron, Sanilac, and St. Clair counties.  This is done through an online Qualtrics survey of companies in the region.  Once the results have been tabulated, we will assemble final reports and compare the data to the results of the 2014 survey. 

Student Tasks & Responsibilities: The UROP student will help to tabulate and analyze the data.  In particular, he or she will tabulate the wage data, calculating and reporting the average wage for each job classification at the county level as well as for the entire region combined. 

Minimum Student Qualifications: The student must be proficient in Excel, and it would be helpful but not necessary to be familiar with Qualtrics.
