Physician Assistant Pay in the Great Lakes Region

May 2020 data published earlier this year by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) put the number of physician assistants (PA) employed in the U.S. at just over 125,000.  As of that time, the five-state Great Lakes region was home to a bit more than 16,000 physician assistants according to the BLS.  BLS data revealed the region to be weak one for physician assistant pay, as the PA annual mean wage level in each state in the region was below the national average.  A closer examination of BLS data from May 2020 revealed the following about physician assistant pay in the Great Lakes region:
