Preface
The Community Wage Survey Program
The Bureau of Labor Statistics regularly conducts
areawide wage surveys in a number of important industrial
centers. The studies, made from late fall to early spring,
relate to occupational earnings and related supplementary
benefits. A prelim inary report is available on completion
of the study in each area, usually in the month following
the payroll period studied. This bulletin provides additional
data not included in the earlier report. A consolidated
analytical bulletin summarizing the results of all of the
year’s surveys is issued after completion of the final area
bulletin for the current round of surveys.
This report was prepared in the Bureau’s regional
office in Chicago, 111. , by Woodrow C. Linn, under the
direction of George E. Votava, Regional Wage and Industrial
Relations Analyst.

Occupational Wage Survey—Indianapolis, Ind.
Introduction

This area is one of several important industrial centers in
which the U .S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics has
conducted surveys of occupational earnings and related wage benefits
on an areawide b asis. In this area, data were obtained by personal
visits of Bureau field econom ists to representative establishm ents
within six broad industry divisions: Manufacturing; transportation,1
communication, and other public utilities; wholesale trade; retail
trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; and serv ices. Major in­
dustry groups excluded from these studies are government operations
and the construction and extractive industries. Establishm ents having
fewer than a prescribed number of workers are omitted also because
they furnish insufficient employment in the occupations studied to war­
rant inclusion. Wherever possible, separate tabulations are provided
for each of the broad industry divisions.
These surveys are conducted on a sample basis because of the
unnecessary cost involved in surveying all establishm ents. To obtain
appropriate accuracy at minimum cost, a greater proportion of large
than of sm all establishm ents is studied. In combining the data, how­
ever, all establishm ents are given their appropriate weight. Estim ates
based on the establishm ents studied are presented, therefore, as re­
lating to all establishm ents in the industry grouping and area, ex­
cept for those below the minimum size studied.
Occupations and Earnings
The occupations selected for study are common to a variety
of manufacturing and nonmanufacturing industries. Occupational c la s­
sification is based on a uniform set of job descriptions designed to
take account of interestablishm ent variation in duties within the same
job. (See appendix for listing of these descriptions.) Earnings data are
presented (in the A -series tables) for the following types of occupa­
tions: (a) Office clerical; (b) professional and technical; (c) m ainte­
nance and powerplant; and (d) custodial and m aterial movement.
Occupational employment and earnings data are shown for
full-tim e workers, i. e . , those hired to work a regular weekly sched­
ule in the given occupational classification. Earnings data exclude
premium pay for overtim e and for work on weekends, holidays, and

late shifts. Nonproduction bonuses are excluded also, but cost-ofliving bonuses and incentive earnings are included. Where weekly
hours are reported, as for office clerical occupations, reference is
to the work schedules (rounded to the nearest half hour) for which
straight-tim e salaries are paid; average weekly earnings for these
occupations have been rounded to the nearest half dollar.
Average earnings of men and women are presented separately
for selected occupations in which both sexes are commonly employed.
Differences in pay levels of men and women in these occupations are
largely due to (1) differences in the distribution of the sexes among
industries and establishm ents; (2) differences in specific duties per­
formed, although the occupations are appropriately classified within
the same survey job description; and (3) differences in length of serv­
ice or m erit review when individual salaries are adjusted on this basis.
Longer average service of men would result in higher average pay
when both sexes are employed within the same rate range. Job
descriptions used in classifying employees in these surveys are usu­
ally more generalized than those used in individual establishm ents to
allow for minor differences among establishm ents in specific duties
performed.
Occupational employment estim ates represent the total in all
establishm ents within the scope of the study and not the number actu­
ally surveyed. Because of differences in occupational structure among
establishm ents, the estim ates of occupational employment obtained
from the sample of establishm ents studied serve only to indicate the
relative importance of the jobs studied. These differences in occu­
pational structure do not m aterially affect the accuracy of the earn**
ings data.

Establishment P ractices and Supplementary Wage Provisions
Information is presented also (in the B -series tables) on s e ­
lected establishm ent practices and supplementary benefits as they re­
late to office and plant workers. The term "office workers, " as used
in this bulletin, includes working supervisors and nonsupervisory
workers performing clerical or related functions, and excludes admin­
istrative, executive, and professional personnel. "Plant workers" in­
clude working forem en and all nonsupervisory workers (including leadmen

Railroads, form erly excluded from the scope of these studies, and trainees) engaged in nonoffice functions. A dm inistrative,
executive, and professional em ployees, and force-account construction
have been added in nearly all of the areas to be studied during the
em ployees who are utilized as a separate work force are excluded.

The summary of vacation plans is lim ited to formal arrange*
m ents, excluding informal plans whereby time off with pay is granted
at the discretion of the em ployer. Separate estim ates are provided
according to employer practice in computing vacation payments, such
as time payments, percent of annual earnings, or flat-sum amounts.
However, in the tabulations of vacation allowances, payments not on
a time basis were converted; for example, a payment of 2 percent of
annual earnings was considered as the equivalent of 1 w eek's pay.

Data are presented for all health, insurance, and pension
plans for which at least a part of the cost is borne by the em ployer,
excepting only legal requirements such as workmen's compensation
and social security. Such plans include those underwritten by a com ­
m ercial insurance company and those provided through a union fund or
paid directly by the employer out of current operating funds or from
a fund set aside for this purpose. Death benefits are included as a
form of life insurance.
Sickness and accident insurance is limited* to that type of in­
surance under which predetermined cash payments are made directly
to the insured on a weekly or monthly basis during illness or accident
disability. Information is presented for all such plans to which the
employer contributes. However, in New York and New Jersey, which
have enacted temporary disability insurance laws which require em ­
ployer contributions,4 plans are included only if the employer (1) con­
tributes more than is legally required, or (2) provides the employee
with benefits which exceed toe requirements of the law. Tabulations
of paid sick-leave plans are lim ited to formal plans 5 which provide
full pay or a proportion of the worker's pay during absence from work
because of illn ess. Separate tabulations are provided according to
(l) plans which provide full pay and no waiting period, and (2) plans
providing either partial pay or a waiting period. In addition to toe
presentation of the proportions of workers who are provided sickness
and accident insurance or paid sick leave, an unduplicated total is
shown of workers who receive either or both types of benefits.
Catastrophe insurance, som etim es referred to as extended
medical insurance, includes those plans which are designed to protect
em p loyees in case of sickness and injury involving expenses beyond
the normal coverage of hospitalization, m edical, and surgical plans.
Medical insurance refers to plans providing for complete or partial
payment of doctors' fees. Such plans may be underwritten by com m er­
cial insurance companies or nonprofit organizations or they may be
self-insured. Tabulations of retirem ent pension plans are lim ited to
those plans that provide monthly payments for the remainder of the
w orker's life.

An establishm ent was considered as having a policy if it met
either of the following conditions: (1) Operated late shifts at the time
of the survey, or (2) had formal provisions covering late shifts.
3
Scheduled weekly hours for office workers (first section
table B-3) in surveys made prior to late 1957 and early 1958 were
presented in term s of the proportion of women office workers em ­
ployed in offices with the indicated weekly hours for women w orkers.

4 The temporary disability laws in California and Rhode Island
do not require em ployer contributions.
5 An establishm ent was considered as having a formal plan if
of established at least toe minimum number of days of sick leave that
it
could be expected by each em ployee. Such a plan need not be written,
but informal sick-leave allowances, determined on an individual b asis,
were excluded.

Shift differential data (table B -l) are lim ited to manufacturing
industries. This information is presented both in term s of (a) estab­
lishment p olicy,2 presented in term s of total plant worker em ploy­
ment, and (b) effective practice, presented on the basis of workers
actually employed on the specified shift at the time of the survey.
In establishm ents having varied differentials, the amount applying to
a majority was used or, if no amount applied to a m ajority, the c la s­
sification "other" was used. In establishm ents in which some lateshift hours are paid at normal rates, a differential was recorded only
if it applied to a majority of the shift hours.
Minimum entrance rates (table B-2) relate only to the estab­
lishm ents visited. They are presented on an establishm ent, rather
than on an employment basis. Paid holidays; paid vacations; and
health, insurance, and pension plans are treated statistically on the
basis that these are applicable to all plant or office workers if a m a­
jority of such workers are eligible or may eventually qualify for the
practices listed. Scheduled hours are treated statistically on the basis
that these are applicable to all plant or office workers if a m ajority
are covered .3 Because of rounding, sums of individual item s in these
tabulations may not equal totals.
The first part of the paid holidays table presents the num­
ber of whole and half holidays actually provided. The second part
combines whole and half holidays to show total holiday tim e.

Appendix: Occupational Descriptions
The primary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau’s wage surveys is to a s s is t its
field staff in classifying into appropriate occupations w orkers who are employed under a variety of payroll
titles and different work arrangem ents from establishm ent to establishm ent and from area to area. T his is
essen tial in order to perm it the grouping of occupational wage rates representing comparable job content.
B ecause of this em phasis on interestablishm ent and interarea com parability of occupational content, the
Bureau’s job descriptions may differ significantly from those in use in individual establishm ents or those
prepared for other purposes. In applying these job descriptions, the B ureau’s field econom ists are
instructed to exclude working supervisors, apprentices, learners, beginners, trainees, handicapped workers,
part-tim e, temporary, and probationary w orkers.
