Figure 2: Average Quarterly Wage for Wyoming's Oil & Gas Extraction Industry* by Year, Quarter, and Region**

* For purposes of this analysis, the oil & gas industry is defined as firms in Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) 13.
** Data for the Southeast region have been omitted because employment levels throughout the study period remained below 100 jobs. Nonclassified county data are not included because they do not provide a meaningful economic comparison to the known regions. In fourth quarter 2001, the average quarterly wage for the nonclassified county was approximately $15,000.
*** The average quarterly wage for the Central region in fourth quarter 2000 was $45,332 due to an employer bonus. This outlier is not included in the Figure.
