ASAE Research Foundation Benchmarking

ASAE Research Foundation benchmarking reports provide insight on financial, operations, compensation and benefits, policies and procedures, and investment management. The data is collected through surveys of ASAE members and nonmembers and, in the case of ASAE’s Operating Ratio Report, from publicly available IRS Form 990 reports.

These studies are available as PDF downloads and through AssociaMetrics, ASAE’s online benchmarking portal, allowing professionals to create customized reports for their needs.
