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 chemical engineering.

Salary Ratio: 1.02    

The Salary Ratio is a comparison of the average salary median compared to the average cost of obtaining this degree (average of undergraduate and graduate costs). It takes a job's average salary median and then compares it to the combined average cost of undergraduate degrees (1-4 years) and graduate degrees (6 years for a masters, 8 years for a doctorate) needed to qualify for that job.

A ratio that's close to 1, or greater, indicates that the average salary median which can be earned is substantial compared to the average cost of obtaining the degree. A Salary Ratio of 0, "N/A", or "INF" implies that school data is not available to provide a proper evaluation. Explore other factors such as the years of work experience usually required, the degree level normally required, and the types of attainable jobs to determine the feasibility of pursuing this degree.
