How to earn more as a psychologist
By: Emily Stetson – 12/02/2017 – 06:36PMA salary at a top research psychology firm may not be all that high, but for African Americans and Native Americans it can be a huge financial boost.
Many psychologists in the US say the median annual salary for African American and Native American psychologists is $48,500, according to a recent report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
That’s a little higher than the national median of $49,000, but the gap is not that wide, the BLS found.
In the past decade, the median African American salary has risen by 13.7 percent, according the Bureau.
That is a more than 25 percent increase from the 10.2 percent increase for the median salary for white respondents in the same time period.
And in recent years, a number of companies and organizations have begun to invest in their workforce in order to improve the quality of research.
One of the top-rated firms in the country for research psychologists is the American Psychological Association, or APA.
According to the BIS report, the annual salary of a psychologist at the APA is $55,715.
The median annual income for APA psychologists is about $50,000.
That’s an increase of more than $10,000 per year.
That means a psychologist working in the APa’s Washington, D.C., offices, which is located in a $1 billion office building, will see a salary increase of about $9,000 a year, according an APA press release.
The median salary of African American psychologists across the US is $50.43 an hour, according a survey from the National Science Foundation.
The pay of white psychologists across all 50 states is about the same.
The BLS said it does not have the salary data for white psychologists because it does, in fact, not collect data for those across the country.
The Bureau of Economic Analysis, which provides data to the federal government, said the median US salary for all workers is about about $52,000 in 2020, which the BSA’s report says is “significantly higher than average.”
“As a society, we’ve created an expectation that psychologists should be paid more,” said Rachel M. Kline, an associate professor of sociology at the University of Minnesota, and one of the authors of the BOS study.
But, Kline added, “The reality is that we pay people more, but we do it in the right ways, in the best way.
We’ve become a very different society.”
Kline said that the pay gap between white and African American workers was exacerbated because of the way the American health care system operates.
Many people with health problems were required to pay for their own care, including out-of-pocket costs, Klines said.
This meant that while some white psychologists may be able to afford to pay their own doctors out of pocket, it would not always be possible for them to.
The BOS report found that, for the white respondents, out- of-pocket spending for doctors was about 25 percent higher than for black respondents.
Another reason why white and black workers have different compensation structures is because of a lack of funding for research.
Klines says research can be extremely expensive.
“It’s like paying for a movie and then having to wait for a week or two for a distributor to make money,” she said.
“We have to wait, because research is expensive.
It’s really hard to get money.”
Many experts agree that the rise in the salary of white and Asian psychologists is because there are more of them.
According to the American Association of University Women, which tracks salaries in the profession, there were just under 1,500 white, Asian and Latino psychologists working in 2017.
The number of black psychologists was about 900, with the highest numbers in California, Massachusetts and New York.
“I think this is a great story for all of us,” said Elizabeth W. Jones, a professor of psychology at California State University, Long Beach, who has researched and written about the gap in salaries between white, black and Hispanic psychologists.
“The salaries of these groups are really high.”
According to Kline and other researchers, the pay of black and Asian researchers can be particularly challenging.
“They don’t have the training, they don’t know how to use the research,” Kline said.
And, she added, the black and Latino researchers who do have the necessary training may be more vulnerable to bias.
“When I see a white person in a white lab coat talking to a black person in the lab coat, that’s a very subtle bias,” she explained.
Jones said that research needs to be done by scientists of all backgrounds, which may mean that it will take more research on race to get the answers that are needed.”In some
