July 2022 Page Rate Data Report (REC)

Not long ago, I surveyed over 200 respondents for page rate and appearance data in our field. The general idea is to bring some transparency to a very opaque market. There are plenty of pie charts for people that want ’em. For this survey, I focused on New York, Illinois, California, and Texas, but we did get a number of respondents from “other” states.

With more time and resources, I could perform more conclusive surveying. But, as all of you, I must operate in a world of finite resources and do the best I can with what I’ve got. The Ducker Report, for comparison, was built off of 120 research interviews. This is built off of 271 self-selecting respondents. I am grateful, as always, to the donors that help keep Stenonymous ad free and help me fund projects.

I do have an ask. If you’re an educator or mentor looking at this, you’ll see the wide spectrum of rates. Push your students and mentees to aim high. We band together and teach each other for the betterment of legal records everywhere. Our next frontier is going to be producing stenographers that can understand and seize the market. If I am correct about the shortage being exaggerated and there are no sudden technological leaps, we may very well have the majority of market share for decades, but only if the reporters we’re molding understand that there is a spectrum and that they do not have to be at the bottom of it, as I once was, even if they are not yet realtime.

Thank you again to all my readers. Feel free to share the report, it is free.

    1. I suspect that there are some outliers, folks that answered incorrectly or maybe attorneys that were answering with copy sale amounts. I am surprised that for California it was 14.5%.

  1. As a student I find this information invaluable. I didn’t realize how much real-time was done in my state, or how much more it could earn. Thank you!

    1. Oh yeah. I was shocked at how many people answered they regularly provide or receive realtime because I believe most jobs aren’t realtime.

      I’m glad you found this helpful.
