The highest pay packages go to CEOs at health care companies. For the third time in four years, chief executives in the health care field led the S&P; 500 in terms of total compensation. The typical CEO in the industry made $16.1 million last year, which means half earned more than that, and half made less.

1. Health care, median compensation of $16.1 million, up from $14.7 million a year earlier.
