Preface
The Bureau of Labor Statistics program of annual occupa­
tional wage surveys in metropolitan areas is designed to provide data
on occupational earnings, and establishment practices and supple­
mentary 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 structure and level of wages among
areas and industry divisions.

Eighty-five areas currently are included in the program.
Information on occupational earnings is collected annually in each
area. Information on establishment practices and supplementary Wage
provisions is obtained biennially in m ost of the areas.
This bulletin presents results of the survey in Philadelphia,
P a .— J. , in November 1965. The Standard Metropolitan Statistical
N
Area, as defined by the Bureau of the Budget through March 1965, con­
sists of Three Inner Counties of Delaware and Philadelphia Counties,
P a ., and Camden County, N. J . ; and Five Outer Counties of Bucks,
Chester, and Montgomery Counties, P a., and Burlington and Gloucester
Counties, N. J . This study was conducted by the Bureau's regional
office in New York, N. Y. , Herbert Bienstock, Director; by Robert M.
Findlay, under the direction of Harold A. Barletta. The study was
under the general direction of Frederick W. Mueller, A ssistant
Regional Director for Wages and Industrial Relations.

At the end of each survey, an individual area bulletin 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 m etro­
politan areas studied into one bulletin. The second part presents
information which has been projected from individual metropolitan
area data to relate to economic regions and the United States.

Area Wage Survey--The Philadelphia, Pa.—
N.J., Metropolitan Area
Introduction

This area is 1 of 85 in which the U. S. Department of Labor's
Bureau of Labor Statistics conducts 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 ists1 to repre­
sentative establishments within six broad industry divisions: Manu­
facturing; transportation, communication, and other public utilities;
wholesale trade; retail trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; and
services. Major industry groups excluded from these studies are
government operations 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 meet pub­
lication criteria.
These surveys are conducted on a sam ple.basis because of
the unnecessary cost involved in surveying all establishments. 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 ­
timates 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.
Occupations and Earnings
The occupations selected for study are common to a variety
of manufacturing and nonmanufacturing industries, and are of the
following types: (1) Office clerical; (2) professional and technical;
(3) maintenance and powerplant; and (4) custodial and m aterial move­
ment. Occupational classification is based on a uniform set of job
descriptions designed to take account of inter establishment 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 -series
tables because either (1) employment in the occupation is too sm all
to provide enough data to merit presentation, or (2) there is p o ssi­
bility of disclosure of individual establishment data.
Occupational employment and earnings data are shown for
full-time w orkers, i. e. , those hired to work a regular weekly schedule
in the given occupational classification. Earnings data exclude pre­

Data wene obtained by m ail from some of the sm aller establishments for which visits by
Bureau field economists in the last previous survey indicated employment in relatively few of the
occupations studied. Unusual changes reported by m ail were verified with employers.

mium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and
late shifts. Nonproduction bonuses are excluded, but cost-of-living
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-time
salaries are paid; average weekly earnings for these occupations have
been rounded to the nearest half dollar.
The averages presented reflect composite, areawide e sti­
m 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 establishments. Sim ilarly, differences in average pay levels
for men and women in any of the selected occupations should not be
assumed to reflect differences in pay treatment of the sexes within
individual establishments. Other possible factors which may contrib­
ute to differences in pay for men and women include: Differences in
progression within established rate ranges, since only the actual rates
paid incumbents are collected; and differences in specific duties p e r­
formed, although the workers are appropriately classified within the
same survey job description. Job descriptions used in classifying
employees in these surveys are usually more generalized than those
used in individual establishments and allow for minor differences
among establishments in the specific duties performed.
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 establishments, the estim ates of occupational employment ob­
tained 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.
Establishment P ractices and Supplementary Wage Provisions
Information is presented (in the B -se rie s tables) on selected
establishment practices and supplementary wage provisions as they
relate to plant and office workers. Administrative, executive, and
professional employees, and force-account construction workers who
are utilized as a separate work force are excluded. "Plant w orkers"
include working foremen and all nonsupervisory workers (including
leadmen and trainees) engaged in nonoffice functions. "Office work­
e rs" include working supervisors and nonsupervisory workers p er­
forming clerical or related functions. Cafeteria workers and routemen
are excluded in manufacturing industries, but included in nonmanu­
facturing industries.

2
Minimum entrance salaries (table B -l) relate only to the e s ­
tablishments visited. They are presented in term s of establishments
with formal minimum entrance salary policies.
Shift differential data (table B-2) are limited to plant workers
in manufacturing industries. This information is presented both in
terms of (l) establishment policy, 2 presented in terms of total plant
worker employment, and (2) effective practice, presented in terms of
workers actually employed on the specified shift at the time of the
survey. In establishments having varied differentials, the amount
applying to a majority was used or, if no amount applied to a majority,
the classification "other" was used. In establishments in which some
late-shift hours are paid at normal rates, a differential was recorded
only if it applied to a majority of the shift hours.
The scheduled weekly hours (table B-3) of a majority of the
first-sh ift workers in an establishment are tabulated as applying to
all of the plant or office workers of that establishment. Paid holidays;
paid vacations; health, insurance, and pension plans; and profit-sharing
plans (tables B-4 through B-7) are treated statistically on the basis
that these are applicable to all plant or office workers if a majority
of such workers are eligible or may eventually qualify for the prac­
tices listed. Sums of individual items in tables B-2 through B-7 may
not equal totals because of rounding.
Data on paid holidays (table B-4) are limited to data on holi­
days granted annually on a form al b asis; i. e. , (l) are provided for
in written form, or (2) have been established by custom. Holidays
ordinarily granted are included even though they may fall on a non­
workday, even if the worker is not granted another day off. The first
part of the paid holidays table presents the number of whole and half
holidays actually granted. The second part combines whole and half
holidays to show total holiday tim e.
The summary of vacation plans (table B-5) is limited to
formal policies, excluding informal arrangements whereby time off
with pay is granted at the discretion of the employer. Estim ates
exclude vacation-savings plans and those which offer "extended" or
"sabbatical" benefits beyond basic plans to workers with qualifying
lengths of service. Typical of such exclusions are plans in the steel,
aluminum, and can industries. Separate estim ates are provided ac­
cording to employer practice in computing vacation payments, such as
time payments, percent of annual earnings, or flat-sum amounts. How­
ever, in the tabulations of vacation pay, payments not on a time basis
were converted to a time b a sis; for example, a payment of 2 percent
of annual earnings was considered as the equivalent of 1 week’ s pay.
Data are presented for all health, insurance, and pension
plans (table B-6) for which at least a part of the cost is borne
by the employer, excepting only legal requirements such as work­

men’ s compensation, social security, and railroad retirement. Such
plans include those underwritten by a com m ercial insurance com­
pany 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
insurance 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, 3 plans are included only if the employer (l) con­
tributes more than is legally required, or (2) provides the employee
with benefits which exceed the requirements of the law. Tabulations
of paid sick leave plans are limited to formal plans4 which provide
full pay or a proportion of the worker's pay during absence from work
because of illness. Separate tabulations are presented according to
(l) plans which provide full pay and no waiting period, and (2) plans
which provide either partial pay or a waiting period. In addition
to the 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, sometimes referred to as extended
medical insurance, includes those plans which are designed to protect
employees in case of sickness and injury involving expenses beyond
the normal coverage of hospitalization, medical, 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 ercial insurance companies or nonprofit organizations or they may
be self-insured. Tabulations of retirement pension plans are limited
to those plans that provide monthly payments for the remainder of
the w orker's life.
Profit-sharing plans (table B-7) are limited to formal plans
with definite formulas for computing profit shares to be distributed
among employees and whose formulas were communicated to em­
ployees in advance of the determination of profits. Data are presented
according to provisions for distributing profit shares to employees:
(l) Current or cash distribution of profit shares within a short period
after determination of profits; (2) deferred distribution of profit shares
after a specified number of years or at retirement; (3) combination
current and deferred plans; and (4) elective distribution plans, under
which each participant is required to select whether to take his share
of the current y ear's profit in cash, have it deferred, or part in cash
and part deferred.

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 nurses, the p er­
centages of change relate to average weekly salaries for normal hours
of work, that is, the standard work schedule for which straight-time
salaries are paid. For plant worker groups, they measure changes
in average straight-time 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.
Office clerical (men and women):
Bookkeeping-machine operators, class B
Clerks, accounting, classes A and B
Clerks, file, classes A, B, and C
Clerks, order
Clerks, payroll
Comptometer operators
Keypunch operators, classes A and B
Office boys and girls
Stenographers, general
Stenographers, senior
Switchboard operators, classes A and B
Tabulating-machine operators, class B
Typists, classes A and B

Industrial nurses (men and women):
Nurses, industrial (registered)
Skilled maintenance (men):
Carpenters
Electricians
Machinists
Mechanics
Mechanics (automotive)
Painters
Pipefitters
Tool and die makers
Unskilled plant (men):
Janitors, porters, and cleaners
Laborers, m aterial handling

NOTE: Secretaries, included in the list of jobs in a ll previous years, are
excluded because of a change in the description this year.

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 r e ­
sulting 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 establish­
ment out of an area could cause the average earnings to drop, even
though no change in rates occurred in other establishments in the area.
Data are adjusted where necessary to remove from the indexes and
percentages of change any significant effect caused by changes in
scope of the survey.
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-time hours. They are not influenced by
changes in standard work schedules, as such, or by premium pay
for overtime.

Appendix A. Changes in Occupational Descriptions

Since the Bureau*s last survey, occupational descriptions for sec­
retary were revised in order to obtain salary information for more specific
categories.

the organization and die scope of the supervisors position are considered
in distinguishing these levels.
Data published under the composite title
of secretary are not comparable to data previously published.

The revised descriptions for secretary (classes A , B, C, and D )
classify these workers according to levels of responsibility.
The size of

The revised occupational descriptions are included in appendix B.

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-time, temporary, and probationary workers.
