The 2011 Santa Index shows that the fantastic Old St. Nick’s efforts to spread joy are worth $132,950 this year, according to Insure.com research using wage data compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
The Santa Index lists the many duties we typically associate with Santa Claus and measures what it would cost to hire others to perform similar functions.
“We associate Santa with Christmas, of course, but one look at his resume will tell you that he’s truly a character for all seasons,” says Emmet Pierce, managing editor of Insure.com. “Santa, as the story goes, was a multitasker before it became trendy: animal trainer, toy factory executive, aerial navigator, labor negotiator and an ambassador for the holiday spirit -- this guy does it all.”
Here are some highlights from the Santa Index, based on BLS wage data for the closest matching occupations which we’d attribute with his persona:
Other jobs associated with the Santa Claus character include piloting his sleigh, taking care of reindeer and going down chimneys.
