The ratings are, we’re told, based on a number of factors including salary, stress, and physical demands.
Some other rankings in the list of 200 include federal judge (69), newscaster (75), airplane pilot (116), newspaper reporter (140), undertaker (164), photojournalist (167), and bricklayer (180).
