Some jobs are doing well financially right now compared to the average in the economy. Other professions like dentistry are approaching financial crisis.
We did a survey of over 4,000 readers of this website on March 18, 2020. We followed that up with another survey of the same audience on Friday April 17, 2020. Over 3,000 readers responded to the second survey request, and that population was statistically equivalent to the first survey.
We wanted to know how incomes across different professions are changing in response to the Coronavirus pandemic over time.
Here’s the full survey results below of major professions. I restate the top 10 and show dentistry as a reference point.
Notice how many of the jobs changed their ranking since March 18. This reflects the fast moving changes and losses in incomes across different industries.
