The state of Connecticut was named after the Connecticut River, which nearly bisects the state. The capital of Connecticut is Hartford and the current population of Connecticut is right around 3.5 million people. The interior of Connecticut has a humid continental climate, while the shoreline regions of the state have a humid subtropical climate, with few seasonal extremes.

Conneciticut is a relatively wealthy state. Its 2010 gross state product was roughly $240 billion and per capita income was $54,117 – the highest among all states nationwide. The wealthiest town in Connecticut, New Canaan, has a per capita income of $85,459 and the poorest city in the state, Hartford, has a per capita income of roughly $15,000. So while Connecticut is a wealthly state, there is still quite a bit of disparity among per capita earnings.

The economy in Connecticut is driven by a number of industries including agriculture (eggs, clams, lobsters, dairy products, etc.), transportation equipment (especially helicopters, aircraft parts, and nuclear submarines), military weapons manufacturing, electrical equipment and heavy industrial machinery, metal products, chemical and pharmaceutical products and scientific instruments. While the economy in Connecticut has been sluggish in the past it’s now growing at a steady rate and job opportunities are plentiful for skilled professsionals.

With over 3.5 million people living in Connecticut the demand for health care services is steady and strong. Health care professionals, including psychologists, are in high demand. The mean annual income for psychologists working in Connecticut, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics 2010 data, is roughly $75,000 a year. However, psychology salaries will vary depending on the industry you choose to work in, your specialty, your location and your experience and education level. Most job opportunities for psychologists will be found in the state’s largest cities, including Bridgeport.
