The Executive Compensation Index tracks the total cash compensation for the highest-paid executives at a cross section of 45 major U.S. businesses, and examines whether or not executive compensation is increasing or decreasing faster than company annual revenues. Executives saw a 1.9 percent decrease in their total compensation in the survey period.
