Radiologic Tech Pay in the Great Plains Region

Data published earlier this summer by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that, as of May 2020, there were about 207,000 radiologic technologists and technicians employed in the United States.  The Great Plains region of the U.S. held about 16,600 of the country's radiologic tech jobs at that time.  BLS data revealed the region to be one of the weakest in the nation for radiologic tech pay.  Although Minnesota ranked in the top 15 nationally for radiologic tech annual mean wages, nearly three-fourths of the region's radiologic techs lived in a state where the average annual mean wage was below the national average for radiologic techs.  Moreover, five of those Great Plains states ranked among the 15 worst states in the nation for radiologic tech annual mean wages.  More examination of May 2020 data from the BLS tells us the following about radiologic tech pay in the Great Plains region:
