Where did we get the data?

Our data is taken from the most recent reports issued by Bureau of Labor Statistics and the National Center for Education Statistics.

Why isn't all the data available?

Not all professions have annual salaries and are instead paid on an hourly basis. Because working hours can change throughout the year, we can't reliably create a annual salary. This is why the average salaries for some of the top professions might be listed as "N/A."

In addition, not all states provide growth data for each profession. In these cases, the state-level data may show N/A for job growth percentage.
