I don't have a good answer to your request, but you might find something
looking around the US Department of Labor's site: "Overview of BLS Wage
Data by Area and Occupation" (BLS = Bureau of Labor Statistics).
A quick glance doesn't show me "education" associated with these data,
but I am not looking hard. Most of the rest of the information you want
appears to be present.
