Overall, Idaho now ranks 45th for its average, down one spot from its 2011 ranking.
The report shows that among Idaho's largest metro areas, earnings for all occupations except farming, fishing and forestry fell below the national average.
Idahoans in legal, computer or management professions are also earning below the average. For example, in Boise, those professionals earn between 18 and 24 percent less than national averages in those categories.
The report indicates Pocatello was the only metro area in the state where wages as a percent of the national average actually increased.
