What Is the KPH Rate for Data Entry Jobs on Average?

Although the average 10-key KPH (keystrokes per hour) speed is close to 8,000, some firms would test potential hires to see whether they can hit a certain KPH threshold. This minimum is normally 10,000 KPH with a 99.9% or greater accuracy rate.

If an applicant travels at a pace of 12,000 to 15,000 KPH, for example, the accuracy criteria may be lowered to between 97 and 98 percent. One should attempt to raise their KPH for a data entry position to roughly 15,000 in order to be eligible for the bulk of employment available. Before applying for a job, always confirm that the employer has additional requirements above the minimum KPH.
