According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), “Employment of clinical, counseling, and school psychologists is expected to grow 22 percent, *faster than the average for all occupations. Greater demand for psychological services in schools, hospitals, mental health centers, and social services agencies should drive employment growth. […] Job prospects should be best for those who have a doctoral degree in an applied specialty and those with a specialist or doctoral degree in school psychology.”
The BLS also adds, “The median annual wage of psychologists was $68,640 in May 2010.”
*The average growth rate for all occupations is 14 percent.
