Occupational Compensation Survey

In 1991 the Bureau of Labor Statistics introduced the Occupational Compensation Survey (OCS). This survey merged the Area Wage Survey (AWS), the Industry Wage Survey (IWS), and the National Survey of Professional, Administrative, Technical and Clerical Pay (PATC) into a single survey. The OCS concluded in 1997. In Bulletin 3082-1, published August 1996, it was announced that a new statistical program, using a method called "generic leveling," would be replacing the existing OCS program. The OCS, Employment Cost Index, and the Employee Benefit Survey series. This program, temporarily titled COMP2000, would eventually be known as the National Compensation Survey.|Source: National Compensation Measures: History.
