We had that same burning desire to know more about the highest paid professions in Ohio. 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 Ohio.

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

  1. Anesthesiologists
