Notes:
¹Estimates do not include self-employed workers
²Annual wages have been calculated by multiplying the hourly mean wage by a "year-round, full-time" hours figure of 2,080 hours; for those occupations where there is not an hourly mean wage published, the annual wage has been directly calculated from the reported survey data.
³This is a 25-county region including 12-counties in New York (New York City, Long Island, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, and Westchester), 12-counties in New Jersey (Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union), and Pike County Pennsylvania.

(*) Wages for some occupations that do not generally work year-round, full time, are reported either as hourly wages or annual salaries depending on how they are typically paid. Some estimates were also not released.

 

(**) Estimates not released

 

# This wage is equal to or greater than $90.00 per hour or $187,200 per year.
