I was curious about salaries around the US and had a hard time getting my answers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
I knew other people would be curious, too. So, I built a website of my own.
Go check it out! MyAverageSalary.com
Some stats about the site:
- Stores 11 million rows of data from the BLS
- Runs on the Sinatra Web Server with Ruby and MySQL
- Presents a heat map of salary data with D3.js
- All of the data can be updated from the BLS with a single script.
