According to Burtch Works’ 2014 study of salaries for data scientists – typically those with university degrees in a quantitative field of study that are comfortable with programming languages and statistical methods – the median salary for employees not working as part of a team was $80,000 for those with 0-3 years’ experience and $150,000 for those with 9 or more years’ experience.
At the managerial level the median salaries were higher, with those responsible for a team of 1-3 earning $140,000 and those responsible for a team of 10 or more earning $232,500.
By contrast, the mean average annual income for a lawyer in America was $131,990 in 2013, while doctors earned $183,940, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
