To determine the highest paying jobs for women, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the median wage for over 180 detailed occupations with data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Current Population Survey program. Occupations were ranked based on the median annual wage for full-time female workers in 2020. Median annual wage estimates were calculated by multiplying the median weekly wage by 52 weeks. Additional data on employment by gender and median wages for full-time male workers used to calculate gender pay gaps by occupation also came from the BLS.
