Pharmacist Pay in the Mid-Eastern U.S.

According to the most current occupational employment data published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), as of May 2020 there were over 315,000 pharmacists working in the United States.  More than 51,000 of those employed as pharmacists in the U.S. worked in the Mid-Eastern region, which includes the District of Columbia and five states.  The Mid-Eastern U.S. is a relatively weak region in terms of pharmacist pay.  While Delaware ranked among the top ten states in the nation for pharmacist annual mean wages, BLS data indicated that 98% of pharmacists employed in the Mid-East region lived in a state where pharmacist annual mean wages ran below the national average.  A state-level look at BLS data from May 2020 reveals the following details about pharmacist pay in the Mid-Eastern U.S.:
