        In the US, going rates seem to be all over the place. This seems to be more an indication of the overall job market more than anything else. Some development specialities seem to fetch more than most dba specialities. However, in my last company DBA's in general tended to be treated as "one level" higher than the corresponding developer.

        DBA -> Sr. Developer , Sr. DBA -> Lead Developer, etc

        I guess if you are interested in nothing more than following the money then you've got to get a good feel for who's getting paid what in your particular market.
