Towers Watson Data Services

Towers Watson is a merger of Towers Perrin and Watson Wyatt. Towers Perrin was known for compensation consulting while Watson Wyatt (and ECS) was known for their compensation surveys. The two companies merged in January of 2010. Towers Watson Data Services, a subsidiary of Towers Watson still produces the executive compensation surveys.

Some surveys are by industry like the health care, banking, and accounting related titles, while others are by position like those for top management, middle management, and supervisory management.

If you are doing historical research, Watson Wyatt used to publish the industry/position volume with a companion volume for geographic breakdowns.  Eventually they combined the set to create one title per industry/position that did include geographic data.
