With a statewide population just over 4.5 million, Louisiana is the 25th most populous state in the nation. The largest city in Louisiana (and also it’s most well known) is New Orleans and the state capital is Baton Rouge. Louisiana is the only state in the nation that doesn’t have counties. Instead, Louisiana has parishes, which are the equivalent of a county.

When most people think of Louisiana, the first thing that comes to mind is the vibrant and carefree city of New Orleans and its internationally renown celebration of Mardi Gras. Louisiana is well known for many things, including diverse music, exquisite foods, sporting events and much more.

Louisiana has a growing economy driven by agricultural products, seafood, chemical products, petroleum, coal products, processed foods, transportation equipment, and paper products. New Orleans also has a vibrant and thriving health care community. With over 4.5 million residents there seems to be a constant and growing demand for health care services. Health care professionals from nurses to psychologists are in high demand.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (2010 data) the mean annual wage of psychologists in Louisiana is just over $73,000 a year. This, coupled with a lower than average cost of living, makes Louisiana a good place to live and work if you’re a psychologist.
