Alabama Psychology Pay and Outlook

As reported by the Occupational Outlook Handbook, psychologists working within the state of Alabama can expect to make anywhere from $78,000 to $110,000 per year. While this is not among the most highly paid opportunities in the country, it is worth considering that as of early 2012, the cost of living in New York, N.Y., is around 92.6 percent higher than it is in Mobile, Ala.

In other words, your salary in New York, on the low end, would have to clock in around $150,000 for you to enjoy the same quality of life that you could in Alabama for just $78,000 annually. With many New York psychologists earning in the $120,000 per year ballpark, it is easy to see how living and working as a psychology professional in Alabama could be beneficial.
