PATCA Consulting Rate Surveys

From the 2020 Survey INTRODUCTION:

This report presents data obtained from an online survey completed in September 2020 by members of PATCA, as well as some members of the IEEE Consultants Network of Silicon Valley, the Kimberly Weifling Consulting Collaboratory, Women in Consulting (WIC) and Golden Gate Consultants.

Respondents were asked to report information for the one year period from July 2019 through the end of July 2020. Completed responses to the survey were received from 115 members of the combined groups mentioned above.

The first section of this report presents data about various impacts of the Covid-19 Shutdown on the consulting business. All of this data was obtained directly from the Google Forms website. The second section focuses on rates and how they vary depending on the type of consulting and a few other factors. This data was computed from an Excel spreadsheet using its cross-tabulation and graphing capabilities.
