Physician pay in the best, worst states for women

Oklahoma is the worst state for women, while Massachusetts is the best, according to a Feb. 26 report from personal finance site WalletHub.

The report compared all 50 states and Washington, D.C., across two key dimensions: women's economic and social well-being and women's healthcare and safety. 

Here is the average annual physician pay in the best and worst states for women based on May 2022 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which excludes anesthesiologists, cardiologists, dermatologists, emergency medicine physicians, family medicine physicians, general internal medicine physicians, neurologists, obstetricians and gynecologists, and pathologists. 

Note: There was no data available for New Jersey or Mississippi.
