Introduction

as fo r o ffic e c le r ic a l o ccu p a tion s, re fe re n ce is to the w ork schedules
(rounded to the n ea rest half hour) fo r w hich straigh t-tim e salaries
a re paid; average w eekly earnings fo r these occupations have been
rounded to the n earest half d o lla r.

This a rea is 1 o f 82 labor m arkets in w hich the U. S. D e­
partm ent o f L a b o r 's Bureau o f L abor S tatistics conducts surveys o f
occu p ation al earnings atid rela ted wage benefits on an areaw ide b a sis.
In this a re a , data w e r e obtained by p erson al v isits o f Bureau field
e con om ists to rep resen ta tiv e establishm ents within six broad industry
d iv isio n s: M anufacturing; transportation, com m unication, and other
public u tilities; w h olesa le trade; retail trade; finance, in su ran ce, and
r e a l estate; and s e r v ic e s . M ajor industry groups excluded fro m these
studies a re governm ent operations and the construction and extractive
in d u stries. E stablishm ents having few er than a p re sc r ib e d num ber o f
w o rk e rs are om itted b ecau se they tend to furnish in su fficien t em p lo y ­
m ent in the occu pation s studied to w arrant inclusion. Separate tabu­
lations are p rov id ed fo r each o f the broad industry division s which
m eet p u blication c r it e r ia .

D iffe re n ce s in pay lev els fo r selected occupations in which
both m en and w om en a re com m on ly em ployed m ay be due to such
fa cto rs as (1) d iffe re n ce s in the distribution o f the sexes among in ­
du stries and establishm ents; (2) d iffe re n ce s in length o f serv ice or
m e rit review when individual sa la rie s are adjusted on this basis;
and (3) d iffe re n ce s in sp e c ific duties p e rfo rm e d , although the o c c u ­
pations a re a p p rop ria tely c la s s ifie d within the sam e su rvey job d e ­
scrip tion . Job d escrip tion s used in cla ssify in g em p loyees in these
su rveys are usually m o re g en era lized than those used in individual
establish m en ts. This allow s fo r m inor d ifferen ces among establish ­
m ents in s p e c ific duties p e rfo rm e d .

T hese su rv ey s a re conducted on a sam ple ba sis becau se o f
the u n n ecessa ry c o s t involved in surveying all establish m en ts. To
obtain optim um a c c u r a c y at minimum c o s t, a greater p rop ortion o f
la rg e than o f sm a ll establishm ents is studied. In com bining the data,
h ow ev er, a ll establish m en ts a re given their appropriate weight. E s ­
tim ates based on the establishm ents studied are presen ted , th e re fo re ,
as relating to a ll establishm ents in the industry grouping and a re a ,
excep t fo r those below the m inim um size studied.

Occupational em ploym ent estim ates rep resen t the total in
a ll establishm ents within the scop e o f the study and not the number
actually surveyed. B ecause o f d iffe re n ce s in occupational structure
among establish m en ts, the estim ates of occu pation al em ploym ent
obtained fro m the sam ple o f establishm ents studied serve only to
indicate the relative im portance o f the jo b s studied. T hese d iffe r ­
en ces in occupational stru ctu re do not m aterially a ffect the accu racy
of the earnings data.

O ccupations and E arnings
The occu p ation s se le cte d for study are com m on to a va riety
o f m anufacturing and nonmanufacturing in du stries, and a re o f the
follow in g types: (a) O ffice c le r ic a l; (b) p ro fe ssio n a l and technical;
(c) m aintenance and powerplant; and (d) custodial and m a teria l m o v e ­
m ent. O ccupational cla s s ific a tio n is based on a u niform set o f job
d escrip tio n s d esign ed to take account of inter establishm ent variation
in duties within the sam e jo b . The occupations se le cte d fo r study
are listed and d e s c r ib e d in the appendix. Earnings data fo r som e o f
the occu pation s liste d and d e s crib e d are not presented in the A -s e r ie s
tables becau se either (1) em ploym ent in the occupation is too sm all
to p rov id e enough data to m e rit presentation, or (2) there is p o s s i­
b ility o f d is c lo s u r e o f individual establishm ent data.

E stablishm ent P r a c tic e s and Supplem entary Wage P ro v isio n s
Inform ation is p resen ted (in the B -s e r ie s tables) on selected
establishm ent p r a ctice s and supplem entary wage p rov ision s as they
relate to o ffice and plant w o rk e rs . A dm in istrative, execu tive, and
p ro fe ssio n a l e m p loyees, and fo r c e -a c c o u n t con stru ction w ork ers who
are u tilized as a separate w ork fo r c e are excluded. "O ffice w o rk e rs"
include w orking su p e rv iso rs and n on su p ervisory w ork ers perform ing
c le r ic a l o r related functions. "P lant w o r k e r s " include working forem en
and a ll n on su p ervisory w o rk e rs (including leadm en and trainees) en­
gaged in n onoffice functions. C afeteria w ork ers and routem en are
excluded in manufacturing in d u stries, but included in nonmanufacturing
in du stries.

O ccupational em ploym ent and earnings data are shown for
fu ll-tim e w o r k e r s , i. e. , those hired to w ork a regular w eekly schedule
in the given occu p ation al cla ss ifica tio n . Earnings data exclude p r e ­
m ium pay for ov ertim e and for w ork on w eekends, h olidays, and late
sh ifts. N onproduction bonuses are excluded, but c o s t-o f-liv in g bonuses
and incentive earnings are included. W here weekly hours are rep orted ,




M inimum entrance sa la ries (table B - l ) relate only to the e s ­
tablishm ents v isited . They are p resen ted in term s o f establishm ents
with form a l minim um entrance salary p o lic ie s .

Shift d ifferen tia l data (table B -2 ) a re lim ited to plant w o rk e rs
in manufacturing in d u stries. This in form ation is p resen ted both in
term s o f (a) establishm ent p o l i c y ,1 p resen ted in term s o f total plant
w ork er em ploym ent, and (b) effe ctiv e p r a c tic e , p resen ted in term s o f
w o rk e rs actually em ployed on the sp e cifie d shift at the tim e o f the
su rvey. In establishm ents having v a rie d d iffe re n tia ls, the amount
applying to a m a jority w as u sed o r , if no amount applied to a m a jo rity ,
the cla ss ifica tio n "o th e r " was u sed. In establishm ents in w hich som e
la te -sh ift hours a re paid at n orm a l r a te s , a d ifferen tia l was r e co rd e d
only if it applied to a m a jo rity o f the shift hours.
The scheduled w eekly hours (table B -3 ) o f a m a jo rity o f the
fir s t-s h ift w o rk e rs in an establishm ent are tabulated as applying to
a ll o f the plant o r o ffic e w o rk e rs o f that establishm ent. P aid holidays;
paid vacations; and health, in su ra n ce, and pension plans (tables B -4
through B -7 ) a re treated sta tistica lly on the b a sis that these are
applicable to a ll plant o r o ffic e w o rk e rs if a m a jority o f such w o rk e rs
a re elig ib le or m ay eventually qualify fo r the p r a ctice s listed . Sums
o f individual item s in tables B -2 through B -7 m ay not equal totals
becau se o f rounding.
Data on paid holidays (table B -4 ) a re lim ited to data on
holidays granted annually on a fo rm a l b a sis; i. e. , (1) a re p rovided
fo r in w ritten fo r m , o r (2) have been establish ed by cu stom . Holidays
ord in a rily granted a re included even though they m ay fa ll on a non­
w ork d ay, even if the w o rk e r is not granted another day off. The fir s t
part o f the paid holidays table p resen ts the num ber o f whole and half
holidays actually granted. The secon d part com bines whole and half
holidays to show total holiday tim e .
The sum m ary o f vacation plans (table B -5 ) is lim ited to
fo rm a l p o lic ie s , excluding in form a l arrangem ents w hereby tim e o ff
with pay is granted at the d is cre tio n o f the em p loyer. Separate
estim ates are provid ed a ccord in g to em p loyer p ra ctice in computing
vacation paym ents, such as tim e paym ents, p ercen t o f annual ea rn in gs,
o r fla t-su m am ounts. H ow ever, in the tabulations o f vacation pay,
paym ents not on a tim e b a sis w e re con verted to a tim e b a sis; fo r
exam p le, a payment o f 2 p ercen t o f annual earnings was con sid ered
as the equivalent o f 1 w e e k 's pay.
A n establidunent was considered as having a p olicy if it m et either o f the following
conditions: (1) Operated late shifts at the time o f the survey, or (2) had formal provisions covering
late shifts. An establishment was considered as having formal provisions if it (1 ) had operated late
drifts during the 12 months prior to the survey, or (2) had provisions in written form for operating
late shifts.




Data are presented fo r a ll health, in su ra n ce, and pen sion
plans (tables B -6 and B -7) fo r w hich at lea st a part o f the co st is
born e by the e m p loyer, excepting only lega l requ irem en ts such as
w ork m en 's com pensation, s o c ia l s e cu rity , and ra ilro a d retirem en t.
Such plans include those underw ritten by a c o m m e r c ia l insurance
com pany and those provided through a union fund o r paid d ire ctly
by the em ployer out o f cu rren t operating funds or fr o m a fund set
a sid e fo r this p u rpose. Death ben efits a re included as a fo rm o f
life insurance.
Sickness and acciden t in su ran ce is lim ited to that type o f
insurance under which pred eterm in ed ca sh paym ents a re m ade d ir e c tly
to the insured on a w eekly or m onthly b a sis during illn e ss or a ccid en t

Inform ation is presen ted fo r a ll such plans to w hich the
em p loyer contributes. H ow ever, in New Y ork and New J e rs e y , w hich
have enacted tem pora ry disability in su ran ce laws w hich req u ire e m ­
p lo y e r co n trib u tio n s,2 plans are included only if the em p loyer (1) c o n ­
tributes m ore than is legally re q u ire d , or (2) p rov id es the em p loyee
with benefits which exceed the requ irem en ts o f the law. Tabulations
o f paid sick leave plans are lim ited to fo rm a l p la n s 3 w hich p rovid e
fu ll pay o r a p rop ortion o f the w o r k e r 's pay during ab sen ce fr o m w ork
b ecau se o f illn ess.
Separate tabulations a re p resen ted a cco rd in g to
(1) plans which p rovide full pay and no w aiting p e rio d , and (2) plans
w hich provide either partial pay o r a waiting p eriod . In addition to
the presentation o f the p rop ortion s o f w o rk e rs who are p rov id ed
sick n ess and acciden t insurance o r paid sick le a v e , an unduplicated
total is shown o f w ork ers who r e c e iv e either or both types o f b en efits.
Catastrophe in su ran ce, som etim es r e fe r r e d to as extended

Z The temporary disability laws in California and Rhode Island do not require em ployer
contributions.

An establishment was considered as having a formal plan if it established at least the
minimum number o f days o f sick leave that could be expected by each em ployee. Such a plan
need not be written, but informal sick leave allowances, determined on an individual basis, were
excluded.

1 The Atlanta Standard M etropolitan Statistical Area consists of Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton, and Gwinnett Counties.
The "w orkers within scope of study" estim ates shown in this
table provide a reasonably accurate description of the size and com position of the labor fo rce included in the survey.
The estim ates are not intended, how ever, to serve as a basis of
com p a rison with other em ploym ent indexes for the area to measure employment trends or levels since (1) planning o f wage surveys requires the use of establishm ent data com piled considerably
in advance o f the pa yroll period studied, and (2) sm all establishments are excluded from the scope o f the survey.
2 The 1957 rev ised edition of the Standard Industrial C lassification Manual was used in cla ssifyin g establishm ents by industry division.
3 Includes all establishm ents with total employment at or above the minimum lim itation.
A ll outlets (within the area) of com panies in such industries as trade, finance, auto repair
s e rv ice , and m otion picture theaters are con sidered as 1 establishment.
4 Includes executive, profession a l, and other w orkers excluded from the separate o ffice and plant categories.
5 Taxicabs and se rv ice s incidental to water transportation were excluded.
6 Estimate relates to rea l estate establishments only.
W orkers from the entire industry division are represented in the S eries A tables, but from the real estate portion only in "all
industry" estim ates in the Series B tables.
7 Hotels; personal s e rv ice s ; business serv ices; automobile repair shops; m otion pictures; nonprofit m em bership organizations; and engineering and architectural s e rv ice s .
8 This industry division is represented in estim ates fo r "all industries" and "nonmanufacturing" in the Series A tables, and fo r "a ll industries" in the S eries B tables. Separate
presentation o f data fo r this d ivision is not made fo r one or m ore o f the following reasons: (l) Employment in the division is too sm all to provide enough data to m erit separate study,
(2) the sam ple was not designed initially to perm it separate presentation, (3) response was insufficient o r inadequate to perm it separate presentation, and (4) there is p ossibility of disclosure
of individual establishm ent data.

Appendix: Occupational Descriptions
The primary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau’ s wage surveys is to a ssist its
field staff in classifying into appropriate occupations workers who are employed under a variety of payroll
titles and different work arrangements from establishment to establishment and from area to area.
This permits the grouping of occupational wage rates representing comparable job content.

Because

of this emphasis on interestablishment and interarea comparability of occupational content, the Bu­
reau’ s job descriptions may differ significantly from those in use in individual establishments or those
prepared for other purposes. In applying these job descriptions, the Bureau’ s field economists are in­
structed to exclude working supervisors, apprentices, learners, beginners, trainees, handicapped, part-time,
temporary, and probationary workers.
