Salary data on psychologists and other psychologists in the U.S. is hard to come by.
And while the profession has experienced significant growth, that growth has come at a time when its members face growing pressure from employers.
A survey of psychologists conducted by the American Psychological Association (APA) last year found that the number of psychologists who earned more than $200,000 per year — which includes benefits and stock options — was at its lowest point in more than a decade.
According to the APA, the number was at just 27 percent of the U,S.
population in 2016.
The decline in the number is the result of a number of factors, including the shift from a profession that relies on the skills of its employees to one that relies more on data-driven thinking and analytics, as well as a growing number of companies that are relying on technology to deliver services to clients.
“The problem is, the profession is not growing as quickly as it could,” said Dr. David Haidt, a psychologist at the University of Florida and author of the book, “The Righteous Mind.”
In 2016, there were 4.3 psychologists per 100,000 U.N. citizens in the world, compared with 5.1 in 2010.
That increase in numbers is also reflected in the amount of psychologists working in the field, which is a sign that they are working to develop a more robust workforce, Haidts said.
While it’s too soon to know whether the trend toward smaller compensation levels is a temporary trend or a permanent trend, there is some data that suggests that this is a trend.
The APA’s survey of more than 6,000 psychologists found that fewer than 10 percent of psychologists earned more in 2016 than they did in 2010, the year before the recession hit.
That’s a decline of nearly half, from 23 percent to 20 percent.
The data, which was released by the APPA in November, showed that just 4.4 percent of psychology faculty members earned more per year in 2016, a decline from 11.2 percent in 2010 and 13.6 percent in 2000.
That trend is also mirrored by the number and salaries of other professionals in the psychology field, such as psychologists and psychiatrists, who have also seen their pay increase.
“There is no reason to believe that the profession will remain stagnant,” said Haidta.
But there are some signs that the economy is changing, and that changes the incentives for psychologists to increase their salaries. In the U
