that particular version of the annual Gamsutra Salary Survey is from 2005 (despite it being reprinted in the 2006 Career Guide doc which came out months ago). This year’s results are usually out around now in the print version of the mag

[NB: The intro on Game Careers (http://www.gamasutra.com/php-bin/news_index.php?story=10794) says the survey is taken from the 2006 Salary Survey. So the data is EITHER from 2005 or 2006… ]

Every year I add the Gamasutra survey results into a spreadsheet I have documenting the average Irish & UK salaries. While the gap between Europe and US is steadily decreasing, there is on average a 12 – 15% difference (Europe generally being lower than US). If you look at the data behind the charts, West Coast US salaries are much higher then the rest of the States genrally, and this skews US salaries upwards
