How we determined pay by state

As we mentioned earlier, we took the average annual salary data for table games dealers from the 2016 Bureau of Labor Statistics — specifically their ‘Occupational Employment Statistics.’

To make the comparison of salaries apples to apples across states, we also took into account the cost of living in each state.

We then created an index by dividing the average wage for a state by the cost of living relative to average. As an example, the cost of living index in California is 135.9 and the average pay is $27040, so our index value would be:

$27,040 * (100 / 135.9) = $19,896

We then ranked every state on this criteria with the state with the highest salary index ranking as highest average salary for table games dealers.

Here’s a look at the full ranking for all states.
