    Salaries in the US vary widely depending on state, as well as even city. And then experience also comes into play.

    You can check out and get an idea. But there are many considerations that also have to be entertained. Such as if the salary is higher for an area, it usually means that the cost of living is also much higher there. Such as for apt rent, food, gasoline, etc.

    And then you also need to look at crime statistics for the area.

    Base your idea of where you want to work on the location, what there is to do, size of the cities, schooling if you have children, etc. Do not go by just the salaries.

    Unless you are writing a few hundred page dissertation, you are going to have way too much information for a report. There is a wide variance depending on the state, as well as city.

    We have seen salaries as low as $16 US, and to over $50. And that is per hour. And from different areas of the country.

    It's also very important to consider, beside the salary, the income you will be bringing home after all the taxes are deducted. Different States have variable taxes (Federal, State, Personal Income, City, Sales taxes, etc.). Most important thing to consider is, what will be your take-home pay after all these are withheld.

    If you want specifics on each state: please go to the forums for each of them, do not rely on all of that information being posted here again.

    And even what Jon posted, that is only for New York City, any of the other areas in that state do not pay that salary. It is specific for NYC only.
