It
yields detailed data by selected industry divisions fo r each
of the a r e a s studied, fo r economic re g io n s , and fo r the
United States.
A m a j o r consider ation in the p r o g r a m is
the need fo r g r e a t e r insight into ( l ) the movement of w ages
by occupational catego ry and skill level, and (2) the s t r u c ­
ture and lev el of w age s among a r e a s and industry divisions.
At the end of each survey , an individual a r e a b u l ­
letin p re sents surv ey re sult s fo r each a r e a studied.

Introduction
Occupational em ploym ent and earnings data a re shown fo r
fu ll-tim e w o rk e rs , i. e . , those h ired to w o rk a re gu la r w eek ly schedule
in the g iven occupational c la s s ific a tio n . E arnings data exclude p r e ­
m ium pay fo r o v e rtim e and fo r w o rk on w eekends, holidays, and
la te shifts.
Nonproduction bonuses a re excluded, but c o s t-o f-liv in g
bonuses and in cen tive earnings a re included. W here w eek ly hours a re
rep o rted , as fo r o ffic e c le r ic a l occupations, re fe re n c e is to the w o rk
schedules (rounded to the n ea rest h a lf hour) fo r which stra ig h t-tim e
s a la rie s a re paid; a v e ra g e w eek ly earnings fo r these occupations have
been rounded to the n ea rest h a lf d o lla r.

T h is a rea is 1 o f 82 in which the U .S . D epartm ent o f Labor*s
Bureau o f L a b o r Statistics conducts su rveys o f occupational earnings
and rela ted w age benefits on an a rea w id e b a sis.
Th is bulletin p resen ts cu rren t occupational em ploym ent and
earnings in form ation obtained la r g e ly by m a il fr o m the establishm ents
v is ite d by Bureau fie ld econom ists in the la s t previou s su rvey fo r
occupations rep orted in that e a r lie r study. P e rs o n a l v is its w e re made
to nonrespondents and to those respondents rep ortin g unusual changes
since the previou s su rvey.

The a v e ra g e s presen ted r e fle c t com p osite, areaw id e estim a tes.
Industries and establishm ents d iffe r in pay le v e l and job staffing and,
thus, contribute d iffe re n tly to the estim ates fo r each job.
The pay
relation sh ip obtainable fr o m the a v e ra g e s m ay fa il to r e fle c t accu rately
the w age spread o r d iffe re n tia l m aintained among jobs in individual
establishm ents. S im ila rly , d iffe re n c e s in a v e ra g e pay le v e ls fo r men
and wom en in any o f the selected occupations should not be assum ed to
r e fle c t d iffe re n c e s in pay treatm en t o f the sexes within individual e s ­
tablishm ents. O ther p o ssib le fa c to rs which m ay contribute to d iffe r ­
ences in pay fo r men and wom en include: D iffe re n c e s in p ro g re s s io n
within establish ed rate ranges, since only the actual rates paid in ­
cumbents a re co llected ; and d iffe re n c e s in sp e c ific duties p e rfo rm e d ,
although the w o rk e rs a re a p p ro p ria tely c la s s ifie d within the sam e
su rvey job d escrip tion . Job d escrip tion s used in cla ssify in g em ployees
in th e s e s u r v e y s a r e u s u a lly m o r e g e n e ra lize d than those used in
individual establishm ents and allow fo r m in or d iffe re n c e s among e s ­
tablishm ents in the s p e c ific duties p e rfo rm e d .

In each a re a , data a re obtained fro m re p re s e n ta tiv e estab­
lishm ents within six broad industry d ivisio n s: M anufacturing; tra n s ­
portation, com m unication, and other public u tilitie s ; w h o lesa le trad e;
re ta il trade; finance, insurance, and re a l estate; and s e r v ic e s . M a jo r
industry groups excluded fro m these studies a re govern m en t o p era ­
tions and the construction and e x tra c tiv e in d u stries. Establishm ents
having fe w e r than a p re s c rib e d number o f w o rk e rs a re om itted because
they tend to furnish in su fficien t em ploym ent in the occupations studied
to w arran t inclusion. Separate tabulations a re p rovid ed fo r each of the
broad industry d ivision s which m eet publication c r ite r ia .
T h ese surveys a re conducted on a sam ple basis because of
the u nnecessary cost in vo lved in su rveying a ll establishm ents.
To
obtain optimum accu racy at m inim um cost, a g re a te r prop ortion of
la rg e than o f sm all establishm ents is studied. In com bining the data,
h ow ever, a ll establishm ents a re given th e ir ap p rop riate w eigh t. E s ­
tim ates based on the establishm ents studied a re presen ted , th e re fo re ,
as relatin g to a ll establishm ents in the industry grouping and area ,
except fo r those below the m inim um s iz e studied.

Occupational em ploym ent estim ates rep resen t the total in a ll
establishm ents w ithin the scope of the study andnot the number actually
su rveyed. Because o f d iffe re n c e s in occupational structure among e s ­
tablishm ents, the estim ates of occupational em ploym ent obtained fro m
the sam ple of establishm ents studied s e rv e only to indicate the r e la tiv e
im portance o f the jobs studied.
T h ese d iffe re n c e s in occupational
structure do not m a te ria lly a ffe c t the accu racy of the earnings data.

Occupations and Earnings
The occupations s e lected fo r study a re com m on to a v a rie ty
o f manufacturing and nonmanufacturing in d u stries, and a re o f the
follow in g types: (1) O ffic e c le r ic a l; (2) p ro fe s s io n a l and technical;
(3) m aintenance and pow erplant; and (4) custodial and m a te ria l m o v e ­
ment.
Occupational cla s s ific a tio n is based on a u n iform set o f job
description s designed to take account o f in terestab lish m en t va ria tio n
in duties within the sam e job .
The occupations selected fo r study
a re lis te d and d escrib ed in appendix B.
Earnings data fo r som e of
the occupations lis te d and d escrib ed a re not presen ted in the A - s e r ie s
tables because eith er (1) em ploym ent in the occupation is too sm all
to p rovid e enough data to m e r it presen tation , or (2) th ere is p o s s i­

The

A v e ra g e w eek ly s a la ries o r a v e ra g e hou rly earnings w e re

Changes in the labor fo rc e can cause

F o r exam ple, a fo r c e expansion m ight in crea se the
p rop ortion o f lo w e r paid w o rk e rs in a s p ecific occupation and low er
the a v e ra g e , w h erea s a reduction in the prop ortion of lo w er paid
w o rk e rs would have the opposite e ffe c t. S im ila rly , the m ovem ent of
a high-paying establishm ent out o f an a rea could cause the a v era g e
earnings to drop , even though no change in rates occu rred in other
establishm ents in the a rea.
The use of constant em ploym ent weights elim in ates the effe c t
of changes in the p rop ortion of w o rk e rs rep resen ted in each job in ­
cluded in the data.
The p ercen tages of change r e fle c t only changes in
a vera ge pay fo r s tra ig h t-tim e hours.
Th ey are not influenced by
changes in standard w ork schedules, as such, or by prem ium pay
fo r o vertim e.

Data presen ted in table 2 and a ll A - s e r ie s tables

Data were not collected for draftsmen and tracers due to the revision of occupational
descriptions, which were revised to facilitate improved classification.
(See appendix A . )
It was not feasible to collect earnings data by mail the first year; however, earnings data
for draftsmen and tracers will be collected by personal visit and published next year.

Appendix A. Changes in Occupational Descriptions

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.




11

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.
The revised occupational descriptions are included in appendix B.




Appendix B. Occupational Descriptions

The prim ary 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 em ployed under a variety of payroll titles
and different work arrangements from establishm ent to establishm ent and from area to area. This permits
the grouping of occupational wage rates representing com parable job content. Because of this em phasis on
interestablishm ent and interarea com parability of occupational content, the Bureau’s job descriptions m ay
differ significantly from those in use in individual establishm ents or those prepared for other purposes. In
applying these job descriptions, the Bureau’ s field econom ists are instructed to exclude working supervisors,
apprentices, learners, beginners, trainees, handicapped, p art-tim e, tem porary, and probationary workers.
