Job density versus job count
Which states hire the most specialized personal service managers? We wonder if that's a fair question since states come in all sizes, so instead let's start with the question of which states have the highest density of people working as specialized personal service managers. You can choose to view the number of jobs per state if you prefer.
Salaries by state
Let's get a feel for where specialized personal service managers earn the highest salaries. There are several choices for which data we consider and how we view that data, and each can lead to different conclusions, so please read on...
Median salary versus state ratio
We use two methods to compare salaries across states:
  • In-state comparisons: the ratio of median (middle) salaries for specialized managers compared to the median salary for all people working in each state, or
  • Median salary: the unaltered median salaries for specialized managers.
We hope the ratio allows perspective about how salaries may compare to the regional cost-of-living.
The darkest shading corresponds to states in which specialized managers earn the highest salary when compared to other jobs in the state. We think this figure might be a better indicator than the actual salary for your buying power as a state resident.
