    Highest-paying jobs in Miami

    Doctors, lawyers, CEOs … these are just a few of the occupations that may come to mind when you think of a high-paying job. Within those categories, however, high-paying jobs differ from state to state, even city to city—an occupation that is lucrative in one place may not be so coveted in another one.

    There are many reasons geographic location plays such a big role in whether pay for a job is high. Two main reasons are demand for a local job and the cost of living. The more demand, and the higher the cost of living, the more likely a job will pay more.

    Stacker collected information on the highest-paying jobs in Miami, using compilations by the U.S. Bureau Labor of Statistics. Organized by Zippia and ranked by average annual salary—with information up to date as of this past March—here are the top 25 highest-paying jobs in Miami, Florida.
