A nationwide survey provides a profile of newly promoted city managers. Responses from 177 managers who assumed top local government positions in 1986 reveal a variety of personal characteristics and working conditions. The study examines such factors as managers' reasons for career change, average salary increases, fringe benefits, and family backgrounds. Perceptions of city managers regarding spousal roles, average work week, and expected age of retirement are also presented. Finally, views on pre-service and in-service education and recommended backgrounds are discussed.
