Percentage Pay Adjustments by Geographic Locality

Salaries are calculated for each location based on the percentage amounts in the chart below. The base pay in the Base GS Pay Scale above is multiplied by the percentage adjustment and the result is then added to the base pay.

For example, if you are a GS-10, Step 1 in Atlanta your base pay is $43,824 and
the percentage adjustment for Atlanta is 17.30% so you'll multiply:
$43,824 x 0.1730 = $7,581.55

You'll add the result back to the base pay:
$43,824 + $7,581.55 = $51,405.55

Therefore, the salary for a GS-10, Step 1 in Atlanta is $51,406
