BLS: Ranking of Full-time Civilian Occupations by Hourly and Annual Earnings, July 2009
Ranking of Full-time Civilian Occupations by Hourly and Annual Earnings, July 2009, by John E. Buckley, Bureau of Labor Statistics: September 29, 2010. The ranking of detailed occupations by annual and hourly earnings often shows considerable positional differences when scheduled annual hours are taken into account.
“In June 2010, the Bureau of Labor Statistics published hourly, weekly, and annual earnings estimates from the National Compensation Survey (NCS) for 591 detailed occupations with a reference month of July 2009. The average (mean) hourly earnings for all full-time civilian workers were $22.36; the weekly and annual averages were $884 and $44,901, respectively. The NCS also provided average weekly and annual hours data for each of the 591 occupations meeting publication criteria, or about 72 percent of the 821 detailed occupations found in the Standard Occupational Classification Manual 2000, which is the classification system used by the NCS.”
