How much does a construction project manager make?

What is the average salary of a construction project manager in the US? Is a construction PM paid more than an IT PM (he must be because the projects he manages are usually much bigger than those managed by the IT Project Manager)?

In what part of the world (or in which countries) are construction project managers paid the most?

A construction project manager makes anything between $65,000 and $105,000/year in the US, with the majority making around $90k (source: Payscale and Indeed)

An IT Project Manager, on the other hand, makes more, his salary ranges between $85k and $125k/year, with the majority making around $110k/year. (source: Payscale and Indeed)

Construction project managers make astronomical amounts in the Middle East, especially in the GCC countries, such as Qatar, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia. Construction Project Managers make around $15k/month there (tax free), they also have a lot of perks (such as free housing, a car, a maid, free schooling for up to 4 children, tickets to home country, long vacations).

Note that in order to get all the above "package", on has to have a western citizenship such as one from the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, or any other Western European citizenship.
