25 Highest Paying Jobs for Women


To identify the highest paying jobs for women, 24/7 Wall St. looked at 150 full-time occupations from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey (CPS), a Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) program. The best-paying jobs for women listed here are the full-time occupations with the highest average annual salary for women, regardless of the gender pay gap. Total employment and male and female employment also came from the BLS. Average yearly wage estimates were calculated by multiplying average weekly wages by 52. Broad occupational categories that subsumed more precise designations were not considered.
