The Bureau of Labor Statistics program of annual
occupational wage surveys in metropolitan areas is d e­
signed to provide data on occupational earnings, and estab­
lishment practices and supplementary wage provisions.
It
yields detailed data by selected industry divisions for each
of the areas studied, for economic regions, and for the
United States. A major consideration in the program is
the need for greater insight into (1) the movement of wages
by occupational category and skill level, and (2) the stru c­
ture and level of wages among areas and industry divisions.

Occupational Wage Survey—Washington, D.C.—Md.—Va.
Introduction
This area is 1 o f 82 in which the U. S. Department of
L a b o r's Bureau o f Labor Statistics conducts surveys o f occu pa­
tional earnings and related wage benefits on an areawide b a sis.
In this area, data w ere obtained by p erson al v isits o f Bureau field
econ om ists to representative establishm ents within six broad industry
d iv ision s: Manufacturing; transportation, com m unication, and other
public u tilities; w holesale trade; retail tra d e; finance, insurance, and
real estate; and s e r v ic e s . M ajor industry groups excluded from these
studies are governm ent operations and the con stru ction and extractive
indu stries. Establishm ents having few er than a p r e sc r ib e d number o f
w ork ers are om itted because they tend to furnish insufficient em ploy­
ment in the occupations studied to w arrant inclusion. Separate tabu­
lations are provided fo r each o f the broad industry d ivision s which
m eet publication crite r ia .

reported, as fo r o ffice c le r ic a l occupations, referen ce is to the work
schedules (rounded to the n earest half hour) fo r which straight-tim e
sa la ries are paid; average weekly earnings fo r these occupations have
been rounded to the nearest half d ollar.
D ifferen ces in average pay lev els fo r men and women in any
o f the selected occupations should not be assum ed to reflect d iffe r ­
ences in pay treatm ent o f the sexes within individual establishm ents.
The averages presented re fle ct com p osite, areawide estim ates. In­
du stries and establishm ents d iffe r in pay level, jo b staffing, and in
the extent to which m en and women are em ployed and, thus, contribute
d ifferen tly to the estim ates. Other p ossib le fa ctors which may con ­
tribute to d iffe re n ce s in pay in clude: D ifferen ces in p rog ression
within established rate ranges, sin ce only the actual rates paid in ­
cumbents are co lle c te d ; and d ifferen ces in sp ecific duties p erform ed,
although the w ork ers are appropriately cla ss ifie d within the same
survey jo b d escrip tion . Job d escrip tion s used in classifyin g em ployees
in these surveys are usually m ore gen eralized than those used in
individual establishm ents and allow fo r m inor d ifferen ces among e s ­
tablishm ents in the sp e cific duties p erform ed .

These surveys are conducted on a sam ple b a sis because of
the unnecessary co s t involved in surveying a ll establishm ents.
To
obtain optimum a ccu ra cy at minimum co st, a g rea ter prop ortion of
large than o f sm all establishm ents is studied. In com bining the data,
however, all establishm ents are given their appropriate weight. E s ­
timates based on the establishm ents studied are presented, th erefore,
as relating to all establishm ents in the industry grouping and area,
except fo r those below the minimum siz e studied.

Occupational em ploym ent estim ates represen t the total in
a ll establishm ents within the scop e of the study and not the number
actually surveyed.
B ecause of d ifferen ces in occupational structure
among establishm ents, the estim ates o f occupational em ploym ent
obtained from the sam ple of establishm ents studied serve only to
indicate the relative im portance o f the job s studied. These d ifferen ces
in occupational structure do not m aterially affect the accu racy of the
earnings data.

Occupations and Earnings
The occupations selected fo r study are com m on to a variety
o f manufacturing and nonmanufacturing industries, and are o f the
follow ing typ es: (l ) O ffice c le r ic a l; (2) p ro fe ssio n a l and tech n ical;
(3) maintenance and powerplant; and (4) cu stodial and m a teria l m o v e ­
ment.
Occupational c la ss ifica tio n is based on a uniform set o f job
d escrip tion s designed to take account o f interestablishm ent variation
in duties within the sam e jo b .
The occupations selected fo r study
are listed and d e scrib e d in appendix B.
Earnings data fo r som e of
the occupations listed and d e scrib e d are not presented in the A -s e r ie s
tables because either (1) em ploym ent in the occupation is too sm all
to provide enough data to m e rit presentation, or (2) there is p o s s i­
bility o f d isclo su re o f individual establishm ent data.

Establishm ent P ra ctice s and Supplementary Wage P rovisions
Inform ation is presented (in the B -s e r ie s tables) on selected
establishm ent p ra ctice s and supplem entary wage provision s as they
relate to o ffic e and plant w ork ers.
A dm inistrative, executive, and
p ro fe ssio n a l em ployees, and fo rce -a cco u n t construction w orkers who
are utilized as a separate work fo r c e are excluded. "O ffice w ork ers"
include working su p erv isors and nonsupervisory w ork ers perform ing
c le r ic a l o r related functions. "Plant w o rk e rs" include working fo r e ­
men and a ll nonsupervisory w orkers (including leadm en and trainees)
engaged in nonoffice functions. C afeteria w ork ers and routemen are
excluded in m anufacturing industries, but included in nonmanufacturing
industries.

Occupational em ploym ent and earnings data are shown fo r
fu ll-tim e w ork ers, i.e ., those hired to work a regu lar weekly schedule
in the given occupational cla ss ifica tio n . Earnings data exclude p r e ­
mium pay fo r ov ertim e and fo r w ork on weekends, holidays, and
late shifts.
Nonproduction bonuses are excluded, but c o s t-o f-liv in g
bonuses and incentive earnings are included. W here weekly hours are




Minimum entrance sa la ries (table B - l ) relate only to the e s ­
tablishm ents visited . They are presented in term s o f establishm ents
with form a l minim um entrance salary p o lic ie s .

Shift differen tia l data (table B -2 ) are lim ited to plant w ork ers
in manufacturing industries.
This inform ation is presented both in
term s of (1) establishm ent p o licy , 1 presented in term s o f total plant
w orker em ploym ent, and (2) effectiv e p ra ctice , presented in term s of
w ork ers actually em ployed on the sp ecified shift at the tim e o f the
survey.
In establishm ents having v a ried d ifferen tials, the amount
applying to a m a jority was used or, if no amount applied to a m a jority,
the cla ssifica tion "o th e r" was used. In establishm ents in which som e
la te-sh ift hours are paid at norm al rates, a differen tial was record ed
only if it applied to a m a jority o f the shift hours.
The scheduled weekly hours (table B -3) of a m a jority o f the
fir s t-s h ift w ork ers in an establishm ent are tabulated as applying to
all of the plant or o ffice w ork ers of that establishm ent. Paid holidays;
paid vacations; health, insurance, and pension plans; and p rofit-sh a rin g
plans (tables B -4 through B -8 ) are treated statistically on the b asis
that these are applicable to all plant o r o ffic e w ork ers if a m ajority
o f such w ork ers are eligib le o r may eventually qualify fo r the p r a c ­
tices listed . Sums of individual item s in tables B -2 through B -8 may
not equal totals because o f rounding.
Data on paid holidays (table B -4 ) are lim ited to data on
holidays granted annually on a fo rm a l b a s is ; i. e . , (1) are provided
fo r in written form , o r (2) have been established by custom . Holidays
ord in arily granted a re included even though they may fa ll on a non­
workday, even if the w orker is not granted another day off. The fir s t
part o f the paid holidays table presen ts the number o f whole and half
holidays actually granted. The second 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
form a l p o licie s , excluding in form al arrangem ents whereby tim e off
with pay is granted at the d is cre tio n o f the em ployer.
Separate
estim ates are provided accord in g to em ployer p ra ctice in computing
vacation payments, such as tim e payments, p ercen t o f annual earnings,
o r flat-su m amounts.
H owever, in the tabulations of vacation pay,
payments not on a tim e basis w ere converted to a tim e b a sis; fo r
exam ple, a payment of 2 percen t of annual earnings was con sidered
as the equivalent of 1 w eek 's pay.

company and those provided through a union fund o r paid d irectly by
the em ployer out o f cu rren t operating funds o r from a fund set aside
fo r this pu rpose.
Death benefits are included as a form o f life
insurance.
Sickness and accident insurance is lim ited to that type o f
insurance under which predeterm ined cash payments are made d ire ctly
to the insured on a weekly o r monthly b a sis during illn ess or acciden t
disability.
Inform ation is presented fo r all such plans to which the
em p loyer con tribu tes. However, in New Y ork and New Jersey , which
have enacted tem porary d isability insurance laws which requ ire e m ­
p lo y e r contributions, 2 plans are included only if the em ployer (1) co n ­
tributes m o re than is legally required, or (2) p rovides the em ployee
with benefits which exceed the requirem ents of the law. Tabulations
o f paid sick leave plans are lim ited to form a l p la n s3 which p rovide
full pay or a prop ortion o f the w o rk e r's pay during absence from work
becau se o f illn e ss.
Separate tabulations are presented accord in g to
(1) plans which provid e full pay and no waiting period , and (2) plans
which provide either partial pay or a waiting p eriod.
In addition
to the presentation o f the proportion s o f w ork ers who are provided
sick n ess and accident insurance o r paid sick leave, an unduplicated
total is shown o f w ork ers who re ce iv e either o r both types o f ben efits.
Catastrophe insurance, som etim es re fe rre d to as extended
m ed ica l i n s t a n c e , includes those plans which are designed to p rotect
em ployees in ca se of sick n ess and injury involving expenses beyond
the norm al cov e ra g e o f hospitalization, m ed ical, and su rgical plans.
M edical insurance r e fe r s to plans providing fo r com plete o r partial
payment o f d o c to r s ' fe e s. Such plans m ay be underwritten by c o m ­
m e r c ia l insurance com panies o r nonprofit organizations or they may
be se lf-in su re d . Tabulations o f retirem en t pension plans are lim ited
to those plans that provide monthly payments fo r the rem ainder of
the w o rk e r's life .

Data are presented fo r all health, insurance, and pension
plans (tables B -6 and B -7) fo r which at lea st a part o f the co st is
borne by the em ployer, excepting only legal requirem ents such as
w orkm en's com pensation, so cia l secu rity, and ra ilroa d retirem ent.
Such plans include those underwritten by a co m m e rcia l insurance

P ro fit-sh a rin g plans (table B -8) are lim ited to form a l plans
with definite form ulas fo r computing p rofit shares to be distributed
among em ployees and whose form ulas w ere com m unicated to em ­
p loyees in advance o f the determ ination of p rofits. Data are presented
accord in g to p rov ision s fo r distributing p rofit shares to em p loyees;
(1) Current o r cash distribution o f p rofit shares within a short p eriod
after determ ination o f p ro fits; (2) d eferred distribution of p rofit shares
after a sp ecified num ber o f y ea rs or at retirem en t; (3) com bination
cu rren t and d e fe rre d plans; and (4) elective distribution plans, under
which each participant is required to se le ct whether to take his share
o f the cu rren t y e a r 's p rofit in cash, have it d eferred , or part in cash
and part d efe rre d .

An establishment was considered as having a policy if it met 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
shifts during the 12 months prior to the survey, or (2) had provisions in written form for operating
late shifts.

2 The temporary disability laws in California and Rhode Island do not require employer
contributions.
3 An establishment was considered as having a formal plan if it established at least the
minimum number o f days of sick leave available to each em ployee. Such a plan need not be
written, but inform:.! sick leave allowances, determined on an individual basis, were excluded.

Wage Trends for Selected Occupational Groups
Presented in table 2 are indexes and percentages of change
in average salaries of office clerical workers and industrial nurses,
and in average earnings of selected plant worker groups.
For office clerical workers and industrial n u rses, the p e r­
centages of change relate to average weekly salaries for normal hours
of work, that is , the standard work schedule for which straight-tim e
salaries are paid. For plant worker groups, they m easure changes
in average straight-tim e hourly earnings, excluding premium pay for
overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts.
The
percentages are based on data for selected key occupations and in­
clude most of the numerically important jobs within each group.
The office clerical data are based on men and women in the following
19 jobs: Bookkeeping-machine operators, class B; clerk s, accounting,
class A and B; clerk s, file, class A , B , and C; clerk s, order; clerks,
payroll; Comptometer operators; keypunch operators, class A and B;
office boys and g irls; secretaries; stenographers, general; stenogra­
phers, senior; switchboard operators; tabulating-machine operators,
class B; and typists, class A and B. The industrial nurse data are
based on men and women industrial nurses.
Men in the following
8 skilled maintenance jobs and 2 unskilled jobs are included in the
plant worker data: Skilled— carpenters; electricians; machinists; m e ­
chanics; m echanics, automotive; painters; pipefitters; and tool and
die m akers; unskilled— janitors, p orters, and cleaners; and laborers,
m aterial handling.
Average weekly salaries or average hourly earnings were
computed for each of the selected occupations. The average salaries
or hourly earnings were then multiplied by employment in each of
the jobs during the period surveyed in 1961. These weighted earnings




for individual occupations were then totaled to obtain an aggregate for
each occupational group. Finally, the ratio (expressed as a percentage)
of the group aggregate for the one year to the aggregate for the other
year was computed and the difference between the result and 100 is
the percentage of change from the one period to the other. The
indexes were computed by multiplying the ratios for each group
aggregate for each period after the base year (1961).
The indexes and percentages of change m easure, principally,
the effects of (1) general salary and wage changes; (2) m erit or other
increases in pay received by individual workers while in the same
job; and (3) changes in average wages due to changes in the labor force
resulting from labor turnover, force expansions, force reductions,
and changes in the proportions of workers employed by establishments
with different pay levels.
Changes in the labor force can cause
increases or decreases in the occupational averages without actual
wage changes.
For example, a force expansion might increase the
proportion of lower paid workers in a specific occupation and lower
the average, whereas a reduction in the proportion of lower paid
workers would have the opposite effect. Sim ilarly, the movement of
a high-paying establishment out of an area could cause the average
earnings to drop, even though no change in rates occurred in other
establishments in the area.
The use of constant employment weights eliminates the effect
of changes in the proportion of workers represented in each job in­
cluded in the data.
The percentages of change reflect only changes in
average pay for straight-tim e hours.
They are not influenced by
changes in standard work schedules, as such, or by premium pay
for overtime.

Draftsman. The revised descriptions for draftsman (class A, B,
and C; and draftsman-tracer) replace the previous designations for drafts­
man (leader, senior, and junior; and tracer) and emphasize the distinction
between drafting and design skills. Therefore, if data are presented for
any of these occupations, such data are not comparable to data previously
published. In areas where current employment and earnings information
was collected largely by mail this year and will be collected by a personal
visit by Bureau field economists next year, data for these occupations will
be presented next year.

Since the Bureau's last survey, occupational descriptions for
draftsman and switchboard operator were revised in order to obtain salary
information for more specific categories.
Switchboard operator. The revised description for switchboard
operator arranges these workers into two defined classes (A and B) instead
of a single category, clarifying the criteria of types of calls handled and
types of information provided. The combination of class A and class B
data, where both are published, is comparable to the single designation,
if previously published.




The revised occupational descriptions are included in appendix B.

A p p e n d ix B .

O c c u p a tio n a l D e s c rip tio n s

The primary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau* s wage surveys is to assist 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 Bureau'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 instructed to exclude working supervisors,
apprentices, learners, beginners, trainees, handicapped, part-time, temporary, and probationary workers.
OFFICE
BILLER, MACHINE

BOOKKEEPING-MACHINE OPERATOR

Prepares statements, bills, and invoices on a machine other than
an ordinary or electromatic typewriter. May also keep records as to
billings or shipping charges or perform other clerical work incidental
to billing operations. For wage study purposes, billers, machine, are
classified by type of machine, as follows:

Operates a bookkeeping machine (Remington Rand, Elliott Fisher,
Sundstrand, Burroughs, National Cash Register, with or without a type­
writer keyboard) to keep a record of business transactions.
Class A . Keeps a set of records requiring a knowledge of and
experience in basic bookkeeping principles and familiarity with the
structure of the particular accounting system used. Determines proper
records and distribution of debit and credit items to be used in each
phase of the work. May prepare consolidated reports, balance sheets,
and other records by hand.

Biller, machine (billing machine). Uses a special billing ma­
chine (Moon Hopkins, Elliott Fisher, Burroughs, e tc ., which are
combination typing and adding machines) to prepare bills and invoices
from customers' purchase orders, internally prepared orders, shipping
memorandums, etc. Usually involves application of predetermined
discounts and shipping charges and entry of necessary extensions,
which may or may not be computed on the billing machine, and
totals which are automatically accumulated by machine. The oper­
ation usually involves a large number of carbon copies of the bill
being prepared and is often done on a fanfold machine.

Class B. Keeps a record of one or more phases or sections of
a set of records usually requiring little knowledge of basic book­
keeping. Phases or sections include accounts payable, payroll, cus­
tomers' accounts (not including a simple type of billing described
under biller, machine), cost distribution, expense distribution, in­
ventory control, etc. May check or assist in preparation of trial
balances and prepare control sheets for the accounting department.

Biller, machine (bookkeeping machine). Uses a bookkeeping
machine (Sundstrand, Elliott Fisher, Remington Rand, e tc ., which
may or may not have typewriter keyboard) to prepare customers' bills
as part of the accounts receivable operation. Generally involves the
simultaneous entry of figures on customers' ledger record. The ma­
chine automatically accumulates figures on a number of vertical
columns and computes and usually prints automatically the debit or
credit balances. Does not involve a knowledge of bookkeeping.
Works from uniform and standard types of sales and credit slips.




CLERK, ACCOUNTING
Class A. Under general direction of a bookkeeper or accountant,
has responsibility for keeping one or more sections of a complete set
of books or records relating to one phase of an establishment's busi­
ness transactions. Work involves posting and balancing subsidiary

28

CLERK, ACCOUNTING—Continued
ledger or ledgers such as accounts receivable or accounts payable;
examining and coding invoices or vouchers with proper accounting
distribution; and requires judgment and experience in making proper
assignations and allocations. May assist in preparing, adjusting, and
closing journal entries; and may direct class B accounting clerks.
Class B. Under supervision, performs one or more routine ac­
counting operations such as posting simple journal vouchers or accounts
payable vouchers, entering vouchers in voucher registers; reconciling
bank accounts; and posting subsidiary ledgers controlled by general
ledgers, or posting simple cost accounting data. This job does not
require a knowledge of accounting and bookkeeping principles but
is found in offices in which the more routine accounting work is
subdivided on a functional basis among several workers.
CLERK, FILE
Class A . In an established filing system containing a number
of varied subject matter files, classifies and indexes file material
such as correspondence, reports, technical documents, etc. May
also file this material. May keep records of various types in con­
junction with the files. May lead a small group of lower level file
clerks.
Class B. Sorts, codes, and files unclassified material by simple
(subject matter) headings or partly classified material by finer sub­
headings. Prepares simple related index and cross-reference aids.
As requested, locates clearly identified material in files and forwards
material. May perform related clerical tasks required to maintain
and service files.
Class C. Performs routine filing of material that has already
been classified or which is easily classified in a simple serial classi­
fication system (e .g ., alphabetical, chronological, or numerical).
As requested, locates readily available material in files and forwards
material; and may fill out withdrawal charge. Performs simple
clerical and manual tasks required to maintain and service files.

CLERK, ORDER—Continued

data on the payroll sheets. Duties involve: Calculating workers' earnings
based on time or production records; and posting calculated data on payroll
sheet, showing information such as worker's name, working days, time,
rate, deductions for insurance, and total wages due. May make out paychecks and assist paymaster in making up and distributing pay envelopes.
May use a calculating machine.
COMPTOMETER OPERATOR
Primary duty is to operate a Comptometer to perform mathe­
