We had that same burning desire to know more about the highest paid professions in Indiana. And if you can’t tell by that sentence, we’re a bit of what you’d call data nerds.

We decided to go directly to the source: The Bureau of Labor Statistics.

After scrounging through the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we discovered that Anesthesiologists are the highest paid people in Indiana.

Here’s a quick look at the top ten highest paying jobs in Indiana:

  1. Anesthesiologists
  2. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons
  3. Surgeons

  5. Psychiatrists
  6. Physicians and Surgeons, All Other

  8. Pediatricians, General
  9. Family and General Practitioners

Everyone’s favorite dentists place number 10 on the list of highest paid professions in the Hoosier State. So the next time you sit there while they drill you can dwell on the fact that they are getting extremely well paid for it.
