 " The median annual wage for economists was $91,860 in May 2012."

"...the highest 10 percent earned more than $155,490."

"Businesses and organizations across many industries are increasingly relying on economic analysis and quantitative methods to analyze and forecase business, sales, and other economics trends. As a result, demand for economists should be best in private industry, especially in management, scientific, and professional consulting services."
