By "average" here, the mean is meant (from adding all entries and dividing the sum by the number of said entries), right? The mean can be easily skewed massive earners, who will essentially over-inflate the average income.
Hence, the median (the middle-most entry when everything is ranked numerically) is most used in academia & policy-making. In that case, the 2020 median yearly nominal household income was $67,521 (÷ 12 months = $5,626.⁷⁵/month), but the real (inflation-adjusted) median yearly household income was $41,535 (÷ 12 months = $3,461.²⁵/month).
As for the high-paying jobs, they are jobs mostly medical & I. T. industries.
