10. IT Pros Living On The Coasts Earn More

A region's cost of living is one of the strongest drivers behind salary.

In the United States, the average salary ranges from more than $90,000 in the mid-Atlantic, West Coast and Coastal Southeast regions to less than $85,000 in the Great Plains and Deep South. Specifically, the average IT salary in Washington, D.C., and Virginia is more than $100,000, while the average in Montana and South Dakota is less than $75,000.

Metro areas in high-cost areas also pay better, with security professionals in mid-Atlantic cities such as New York, Philadelphia and Newark, N.J., making $103,732 on average. But those cities in what the study called East South Central states -- such as Birmingham, Ala., Louisville, Ky., and Knoxville, Tenn. -- make just $86,049.
