If you live in a rural area, you may need to travel in order to get more cases; if you live in an urban area, you may be competing with a lot of other available mediators.
Do your homework.
The map below shows the following information for each state for which information is available:
Number of mediators, arbitrators, and conciliators in that state, not including self-employed workers.
Annual mean wage, calculated by multiplying hourly mean wage by typical work-year of 2,080 hours.
Concentration of mediators presents a ratio comparing the state’s concentration of mediators/arbitrators/conciliators to the national average concentration. The lower the number, the less dense the concentration.
