Engineering Jobs Salary Distribution in Brazil

Median and salary distribution monthly Brazil Engineering

Abount These Figures: Salary Range, Median and Percentiles

The Engineering salaries in Brazil range between 5,570 BRL per month (minimum salary) to 13,370 BRL per month (maximum salary).

The median salary is 9,873 BRL per month, which means that half (50%) of people working in Engineering are earning less than 9,873 BRL while the other half are earning more than 9,873 BRL. The median represents the middle salary value. Generally speaking, you would want to be on the right side of the graph with the group earning more than the median salary.

Closely related to the median are two values: the 25th and the 75th percentiles. Reading from the salary distribution diagram, 25% of people working in Engineering are earning less than 6,950 BRL while 75% of them are earning more than 6,950 BRL. Also from the diagram, 75% of people working in Engineering are earning less than 11,157 BRL while 25% are earning more than 11,157 BRL.

What is the difference between the median and the average salary? What should you be looking at?

Both are indicators. If your salary is higher than both of the average and the median then you are doing very well. If your salary is lower than both, then many people are earning more than you and there is plently of room for improvement. If your wage is in between the average and median, then things can be a bit confusing. We have written a guide to explain all the different senarios. How to compare your salary
