      Could they have been counting up the number of "instructor" positions
      on American campuses? We certainly have more "anthropologist" positions
      than "archaeologist" positions although I wonder if they are lumping in
      the physicals with the culturals. My other thought was that
      "anthropology" may appear on more job description requirements than
      "archaeology." There must be some arbitrary statistical rationale
      behind this.

      On the other hand, the WSJ mentions physical demands and stress as part
      of their criteria. Must mean that they think archaeology work is too
      much hard labor (but at least it is reasonably good exercise). ;)

      The 'Wall Street Journal' recently included a ranking of 200 jobs,
      based on the criteria of income, environment, employment outlook,
      physical demands, and stress. I didn't see 'college instructor' on the
      list, but I did see 'Anthropologist" which is ranked 47 and
      Archaeologist, ranked 50.

      For comparison, the number 1 ranked job is 'Actuary'. Attorney is #80,
      Lumberjack is 199 and Roustabout closes the list out at 200.

      The Wall St Journal list and subsequent links to more details about the
      rankings can be found here http://bit.ly/8qSU64

      How come anthropologist is ranked higher than archaeologist? The
      salaries are about the same; and I would guess that the employment
      outlook is probably better for archaeologists than anthropologists (the
      job description in the ranking clearly indicates it is cutlural
      anthropology they are referring to). It can't be the stress because
      archaeologists don't get stressed, uless they are running out of beer.
