What is the average salary of a CAPM certified individual?

How much does a CAPM certified individual earns? I'm saying "individual" and not project manager because I don't consider myself, even after earning a CAPM, a project manager yet, and neither do PMI.

Is there a substantial difference between the salary of a CAPM and the salary of a PMP?

You're one of the few humble people on this planet :).

Anyway, the average salary of a CAPM largely depends on your job title, and can vary from as low as $40K to as high as $90K. Though the norm is somewhere around $60k (which I think is fair for someone who's not even a project manager).

Yes, there is a substantial difference between the salary of a PMP and that of a CAPM, as the PMP grosses an average of $100k/year.

You can easily see that there's a huge discrepancy between the above references.
