Average Salary Medians

Salary median is the average salary amount earned by workers, usually calculated per industry or per metro area. The average salary median is an average of the median salaries earned for jobs that are typically available with this degree. Metro area average salary median is calculated by averaging the salary medians of degree-qualified jobs in major metro vicinities. The state average salary median is calculated using each metro area's average salary median within the state and averaging them. In this case, you're looking at each state's average salary median for workers with a degree in analytical chemistry.

Click on any state in the table below to see which metro areas earn the highest median salaries. If you see "N/A" next to a state, it means that no data is available about that state for this degree.
