National and Local Salaries by Occupation

State Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates are calculated with data collected from employers in all industry sectors in metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas in each state.

Metropolitan and Nonmetropolitan Area Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates are listed by State. Each area name is a link to its occupational employment and wage estimates in a particular county or town.

National Industry-Specific Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates are calculated with data relevant to each industry code and title as defined by the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).
