These two job types are often grouped together, indicating a broad responsibility for development and maintenance of the corporate data model. When they’re listed separately, modelers tend to make more than analysts. According to, EarthWeb’s online job board for IT professionals, modelers were offered an average of $87,500 per year in July 2000, compared with $72,000 per year for analysts. The lowest salaries came in at around $35,000 per year; and at the other end of the spectrum, senior modelers and analysts could bring down as much as $150,000.

Averages are based on 237 listings for these professionals, with cities bearing fewer than 10 listings excluded from mention. New York has the greatest demand among metro areas for this type of worker, with 31% of all listings.
