BLS data revealed the region to be the tops in the nation for clinical psychologist pay.  Although two Far West states recorded clinical psychologist annual mean wage levels that were below the national average for the profession, nearly 90% of the clinical psychologists in the region lived in a state that rated among the top ten in the nation for that pay metric.  Closer examination of May 2021 BLS data details the following about clinical psychologist pay in U.S. Far West region:
