These Are the College Majors That Pay Off the Most

Methodology: 

To determine the highest paying college majors, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed data on average annual earnings for 173 undergraduate majors from the Public Use Microdata Sample summary files of the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2019 American Community Survey. Data on field of study and employment status are self reported by the survey’s respondents. While respondents were able to list the field of study for any bachelor’s degree they have received and may have listed multiple majors, only the first major listed was considered in this analysis. Additional data on unemployment status and workforce size came from the 2019 ACS.
