Accounting profession has ‘some prestige’

Accountants ranked below doctors, teachers and military offices in prestigious jobs stakes

Just 17% of adult Americans believe the accounting profession has ‘very
great prestige’, lower than entertainers, and tied with bankers, with the
majority – two-fifths – saying the profession had ‘some prestige.

In comparision more than half of those polled by research group Harris, said
the jobs of firefighters, doctors, nurses and scientists have ‘very great
prestige’.

Less than a third said accountants has ‘considerable prestige’ while a little
over one in ten, believe the profession has ‘hardly any prestige at all’.

The 2006 poll surveyed more than 1,000 people, asking for their perceptions
of 23 occupations.
