The five U.S. states paying anesthesiologists the most offer hourly wages of at least $100 and annual salaries of $208,000 or more, according to the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics data available.

Five top-paying states and estimated number of anesthesiologists employed:

1. West Virginia: 240
2. Oregon: 510
3. North Carolina: 220
4. New Hampshire: 230
5. Nebraska: 130

Note: Estimates don't equal total employment numbers because certain sectors and self-employed workers are excluded. BLS calculated annual wages by multiplying the hourly mean wage by a "year-round, full-time" hours figure of 2,080 hours. For select occupations, the annual wage was calculated based on reported survey data.
