Where Small CEOs Get Paid Best

(FORTUNE Small Business) – LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME for your business? Consider New York State, where CEOs of small companies enjoy the highest pay in the country. A new study of 40 states shows that entrepreneurs in Delaware (No. 5), Mississippi (No. 9), and Tennessee (No. 2) also enjoy salaries greater than the national average of $258,400. But Oklahomans (No. 40) pull in only about half that amount.
