    How to find prevailing Wage in new geographical area for same position?

    Locate the OCC Code from your Labor Certification. It should be on the lower right corner of the ETA-750A, Page 1. Or you can check the PERM database @ http://www.flcdatacenter.com to see if your labor is entered into the database for your company. (You can sort by Employer Name to get your OCC Code if entered)
    Go to ONet-Online @ http://online.onetcenter.org/ and click on Crosswalk Search
    Enter the OCC Code to get the equivalent ONET Code. For example the DOT Code for Software Engineer is 030.062.010. Enter that and press Go.
    Now you will get the DOT Code. If you enter the above code you will get 3 results. You can pick the one that closely matches your skill set by clicking on the DOT Titles and browsing the detailed descriptions.
    While viewing the Summary Report for the job title (DOT Title) you clicked above, you can click on the Wages & Employment tab under the Summary tab.
    Enter the State the new job/employer is going to be in and click Go
    If the Check Box Wage Information is not checked, then check that box and click on Update.
    You can look up the Table which has the percentile and corresponding salary for the Job Title pertinent to your geographical area!


    Another Approach:

    Go to FLC Data Centerís Download @ http://www.flcdatacenter.com/download.aspx
    Click on the Download the OES Data for <Current Year>. (Youíll need Microsoft Access Installed to open the database)
    Unzip the Access Database and open it.
    Click on the table onet_Dot_onetsoc_xwalk and go to the column DOT_CODE. Sort by DOT_code. For example the OCC_CODE/DOT_CODE 030.062-010 will be shown as 030062010.
    You can get the corresponding ONET_CODE. Example: For Occ_Code 032060010 it is 15-1031.00.
    Now go to table oes_Geo. Sort by State and locate your corresponding column AREA_CODE. For example, FairFax County in Virginia has an Area_Code 8840.
    Now go to table alc03n. Sort column AREA_CODE. For Example: Go to Area_Code 8840 and Right Click on 8840 and Click Filter By Selection. Now you have only area code 8840. You can now sort by OCC Code. Locate OCC Code 15-1031 and you have your wage.
    To have an idea which wage level your original wage was, follow above steps for the original state and find the level that closely corresponds to your Labor Wage. Now you can use that same Wage Level for your new state.

    It is the level of your job that you were hired for. Level 1 could be entry level and so on...
