The Bureau of Labor Statistics program of annual
occupational wage surveys in metropolitan areas is de­
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 m ajor 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 struc­
ture and level of wages among areas and industry divisions.

This bulletin presents results of the survey in
Atlanta, G a ., in May 1965. It was prepared in the Bureau's
regional office in Atlanta, G a ., by W illiam L. Dans by,
under the direction of Donald M. C ruse, Assistant Regional
Director for Wages and Industrial Relations.

At the end of each survey, an individual area bul­
letin presents survey results for each area studied. After
completion of all of the individual area bulletins for a round
of surveys, a two-part summary bulletin is issued. The
first part brings data for each of the metropolitan areas
studied into one bulletin.
The second part presents infor­
mation which has been projected from individual m etro­
politan area data to relate to economic regions and the
United States.
Eighty-two areas currently are included in the
program . Information on occupational earnings is collected
annually in each area.
Information on establishment prac­
tices and supplementary wage provisions is obtained bien­
nially in m ost of the areas.

Occupational Wage Survey—Atlanta, Ga.
Introduction
Occupational employment and earnings data are shown for
fu ll-tim e w orkers, i . e . , those hired to work a regular weekly schedule
in the given occupational classification. Earnings data exclude p re­
mium pay for overtim e and for work on weekends, holidays, and
late shifts.
Nonproduction bonuses are excluded, but co st-of-liv in g
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.

This area is 1 of 82 in which the U .S . Department of L a b o r s
Bureau of Labor Statistics conducts surveys of occupational earnings
and related wage benefits on an areawide b a sis.
This bulletin presents current occupational employment and
earnings information obtained largely by m ail from the establishments
visited by Bureau field economists in the last previous survey for
occupations reported in that earlier study. Personal v isits were made
to nonrespondents and to those respondents reporting unusual changes
since the previous survey.

The averages presented reflect com posite, areawide estim ates.
Industries and establishments differ in pay level and job staffing and,
thus, contribute differently to the estim ates for each job.
The pay
relationship obtainable from the averages may fail to reflect accurately
the wage spread or differential maintained among jobs in individual
establishm ents. Sim ilarly, differences in average pay levels for men
and women in any of the selected occupations should not be assum ed to
reflect differences in pay treatment of the sexes within individual e s ­
tablishm ents. Other possible factors which may contribute to differ­
ences in pay for men and women include: Differences in progression
within established rate ranges, since only the actual rates paid in­
cumbents are collected; and differences in specific duties perform ed,
although the workers are appropriately classified within the same
survey job description. Job descriptions used in classifying employees
in these surveys are usually m ore generalized than those used in
individual establishments and allow for minor differences among e s ­
tablishments in the specific duties perform ed.

In each area, data are obtained from representative estab­
lishm ents within six broad industry divisions: Manufacturing; tran s­
portation, communication, and other public utilities; wholesale trade;
retail trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; and serv ic e s. M ajor
industry groups excluded from these studies are government opera­
tions and the construction and extractive industries. Establishments
having fewer than a prescribed number of workers are omitted because
they tend to furnish insufficient employment in the occupations studied
to warrant inclusion. Separate tabulations are provided for each of the
broad industry divisions which m eet publication criteria.
These surveys are conducted on a sample basis because of
the unnecessary cost involved in surveying all establishm ents.
To
obtain optimum accuracy at minimum cost, a greater proportion of
large than of sm all establishments is studied. In combining the data,
however, all establishments are given their appropriate weight. E s ­
tim ates based on the establishments studied are presented, therefore,
as relating to all establishments in the industry grouping and area,
except for those below the minimum size studied.

Occupational employment estim ates represent the total in all
establishments within the scope of the study and not the number actually
surveyed. Because of differences in occupational structure among e s ­
tablishm ents, the estim ates of occupational employment obtained from
the sample of establishments studied serve only to indicate the relative
importance of the jobs studied.
These differences in occupational
structure do not m aterially affect the accuracy of the earnings data.

Occupations and Earnings
The occupations selected for study are common to a variety
of manufacturing and nonmanufacturing industries, and are of the
following types: (l) Office clerica l; (2) professional and technical;
(3) maintenance and powerplant; and (4) custodial and m aterial m ove­
ment.
Occupational classification is based on a uniform set of job
descriptions designed to take account of interestablishment variation
in duties within the same job.
The occupations selected for study
are listed and described in appendix B.
Earnings data for some of
the occupations listed and described are not presented in the A -s e r ie s
tables because either (l) employment in the occupation is too sm all
to provide enough data to m erit presentation, or (2) there is p o ssi­
bility of disclosure of individual establishment data.




Establishment P ractices and Supplementary Wage Provisions
Tabulations on selected establishment practices and supple­
mentary wage provisions (B -s e r ie s tables) are not presented in this
bulletin.
Information for these tabulations is collected biennially in
this area.
These tabulations on minimum entrance salaries for
inexperienced women office w orkers; shift differentials; scheduled
weekly hours; paid holidays; paid vacations; and health, insurance,
and pension plans; are presented (in the B -s e r ie s tables) in previous
bulletins for this area.

Appendix A. Changes in Occupational Descriptions

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 w ill be collected by a personal
visit by Bureau field economists next year, data for these occupations w ill
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.

13




Appendix B. Occupational Descriptions

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-tim e, temporary, and probationary workers.

OFFICE

BILLER, MACHINE

BOOKKEEPING-MACHINE OPERATOR

Prepares statements, bills, and invoices on a machine other than
an ordinary or electrom atic 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 fam iliarity 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 m a­
chine (Moon Hopkins, Elliott Fisher, Burroughs, e t c ., 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 m ay 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 t c ., which
m ay 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 autom atically 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,

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
