Speech Language Pathologist Pay in the Far West

U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) newly published reports indicate that there were nearly 148,500 speech language pathologists (SLPs) employed in the United States as of May 2020.  More than 20,000 of those employed as SLPs in the U.S. lived in the six-state Far West region of the country.  The Far West region is a relatively good one for speech language pathologist pay, with three states (Alaska, California, and Oregon) in the region registering SLP annual mean wages in the top 10 nationally. On the other hand, other states in the region fall below the national average for SLP pay.  A closer look at BLS data from May 2020 reveals the following about speech language pathologist pay in the Far West region:
