This Interactive Chart Shows the Most Prominent Jobs by Salary, State

Where's the money at in your state? Are there alot of tech jobs? Is the arts and entertainment industry well represented? Flowing Data's interactive chart answers questions like these.

Switch the location from United States to different states and the chart will adjust-sometimes dramatically-to represent which industries and job classifications are most common. For example, switch to Washington DC from any state and you'll find the legal and business sections much larger.

You can hover over a job classification to see the number of people employed as well as the median income. Als

Move the median salary up a bit, and you get a sense of overall salaries (and a correlating cost of living, kind of) as you check out different states.

It's an interesting way to look at the job market for different states, which might help if you're considering relocating. On the other hand, if you are deciding on a career, this interactive chart-also based on the US Bureau of Labor's data-may be more helpful.

Head to FlowingData to play with the information.
