Appendix B. Occupational Descriptions

The primary purpose of preparing jo b descriptions for the Bureau’ s w age surveys is to assist its fie ld
staff in classifying into appropriate occu pation s workers who are em p lo y e d under a variety o f payroll titles
and differen t work arrangements from establishm ent to establishm ent and from area to area.
This permits
the grouping o f occu pation al wage rates representing com parable jo b content.
Because o f this emphasis on
interestablishm ent and interarea com p a ra b ility o f occu p ation al content, the Bureau’ s jo b descriptions m ay
d iffe r sign ifican tly from those in use in individual establishm ents or those prepared for other purposes*
In
ap plyin g these jo b descriptions, the Bureau's fie ld econom ists are instructed to exclu d e working supervisors,
ap pren tices, learners, beginners, trainees, h an dicapped, p a rt-tim e, tem porary, and probationary workers.
