Anesthesiologist State Salary

Anesthesiologist work in a number of settings including hospitals, clinics and schools, and therefore the wages vary depending on the location and the setting.

Discrepancies between the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and other salary sites exist. One factor that explains the discrepancy is the difference between how the BLS collects data.  The data collected by the BLS is primarily from healthcare professionals and workers who are employed.  Healthcare professionals who traditionally operate their own business or self employed are often not captured in the data by the BLS. 

Other salary sites collect and use data from sources that include self employed healthcare professionals.
