Recent analysis of data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics reveals some interesting facts about some of the highest-paying jobs in Louisiana.

The statistics exclude self-employed workers/entrepreneurs, so the analysis, which focuses only on data from 2016, isn't a complete picture by any means. Still, you might be interested to know about 33 jobs in the state that, in 2016, paid more than $100,000 in annual wages on average.
