Note: Lowest 10% is the lowest 10% salaries (so 1 in 10 planners will earn this or less), highest 10% is the highest 10% of salaries (so 1 in 10 planners earn more this or more). The Median/middle value is the middle of the range. i.e. if you asked 100 planners their salary and ranked from highest to lowest, 10 would be less than the low number, 10 would be more than the high number and person number 50 would earn the middle number (with half more and half less than them).
