Data Entry Clerks


The median annual income for data entry clerks was $32,170 in May 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The department also reported that, at the low end of the scale, the lowest 10 percent of data entry clerks earned $22,460 or less. The highest paid 10 percent earned $48,010 or more. Salaries for these workers can vary depending on their employer, the complexity of their job duties, and their level of training. In addition, incomes tend to vary by state or territory, with salaries in the District of Columbia, Connecticut, New Jersey, Hawaii, Washington, and Alaska being the highest. Salaries for data entry workers who are employed by local government agencies are higher than those that are offered by the private sector. Full-time and some part-time employees can expect benefits such as medical insurance, sick leave, and paid vacation.
