NDTR Salary Calculation Worksheet

This salary calculation worksheet for U.S. NDTRs (Nutrition and Dietetic Technicians, Registered and Dietetic Technicians, Registered) is based on a statistical model developed with data from the Compensation & Benefits Survey of the Dietetics Profession 2019, conducted and analyzed for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics by Readex Research. The NDTR model was estimated from responses of 515 NDTRs with an hourly wage in the range of $12.00 to $58.00 (roughly $25,000 to $120,000 annualized).

The model provides modestly powerful predictive accuracy within relatively broad ranges - offering a rough idea of what professionals with similar characteristics and in similar situations earn, on average. It also provides a sense of the relative importance of each factor in predicting salaries. Because other factors not included in the model are known to influence salary (for example, individual job performance), the model is not appropriately used as an absolute guideline for any single individual’s situation.

Select your response for each variable shown, then click the CALCULATE button below to see what hourly wage and annual salary NDTRs in similar circumstances earn, on average. Responses are required for all variables.
