STEM Subjects

        STEM subjects are the fields of study in the categories of science, technology, enginieering, and mathematics. Since the STEM jobs such as computer specialists and bio-engineers require higher education and professional knowledge about their fields, the average salary of STEM jobs are higher than the average salary of the U.S.  The <Figure 1> by Newgeography (2011)  illustrates that STEM-related jobs earn much higher in most states than other jobs.
