Howmuch gathered data from the Occupational Employment Statistics Survey and compiled it into a list of iconic jobs per state. It also tells you the average pay for that position and what percentage of those jobs that state holds. Their analysis uses something called the location quotient to capture how common something is in a given location.
For example – 50% of jobs in Texas aren't Petroleum Engineers, but Texas does contain over 50% of America's Petroleum Engineers.
New Jersey's iconic job is Shampooer ($19,440) … kinda sad. Hopefully, your state's iconic job was better.
