The following formula is used to calculate the Compa Ratio. 

CMPR = CS / MA * 100

  • Where CMPR is the Compa Ratio (%)
  • CS is the current salary ($) 
  • MA is the average market rate for position ($) 

How to Calculate Compa Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Compa Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the current salary ($). 
    • The current salary ($) is given as: 60,000.
  2. Next, determine the average market rate for position ($). 
    • The average market rate for position ($) is provided as: 50,000.
  3. Finally, calculate the Compa Ratio using the equation above: 

CMPR = CS / MA * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

CMPR = 60,000 / 50,000 * 100 = 120 (%)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

current salary ($) = 70,000

average market rate for position ($) = 80,000
