Area Wage Survey----The San Diego, Calif., Metropolitan Area
Introduction
This a r e a is 1 of 86 in which the U. S. Dep artm en t of L a b o r 's
Bureau of L a bo r Sta tistic s conducts surveys of occupational earnings
and r ela te d benefits on an areaw ide b a s i s .
In this a r e a , data w ere
obtained by p e r s o n a l v is i t s o f Bureau field ec o n om is ts to r e p r e ­
sentative es t a b l is h m e n t s within six broad industry d iv isio n s: M a n u ­
factu ring; tra n spo rtation , com m u n icatio n , and other public utilities;
w h o le s a le trade ; r e t a i l tra de; finance, insura nce, and r e a l estate ; and
serv ices.
M a jo r industry groups excluded fr o m these studies are
govern m en t o peration s and the construction and extractiv e industries.
E s t a b li s h m e n t s having few er than a p r e s c r ib e d number of w o r k e r s are
o m itte d , b ec au s e they tend to furnish insufficient e m p lo y m en t in the
occupations studied to w a r ra n t inclusion.
Separate tabulations are
provided for each of the broad industry divisions which m e e t pub­
lication c r i t e r i a .

bonuses and incentive earnings a re included.
W h ere weekly hours are
repo rted, as for office c l e r i c a l occupations, r ef e r e n c e is to the stand­
ard workw eek (rounded to the n e a r e s t half hour) for which em ployee s
r ec eiv e their regular s t r a i g h t -t i m e s a la r i e s (exclusiv e of pay for
o ver tim e at reg ular a n d / o r p r e m iu m r a t e s ) .
A v e r a g e w eekly earnings
for these occupations have been rounded to the n e a r e s t half dollar.
The a v e r a g e s presen te d r e f le c t c o m p o s i t e , areawide e s t i ­
m ates.
Industries and es ta blis h m en ts differ in pay level and job
staffing and, thus, contribute diffe rently to the es t im a t e s for each job.
The pay r ela tionship obtainable fr o m the a v e r a g e s m ay fail to r efle ct
a cc u r ately the wage spread or diffe ren tial maintained among jobs in
individual e s t a b lis h m e n t s .
S i m i la r l y , diffe re n ce s in average pay
le vels for m en and w o m e n in any of the s elected occupations should
not be a s s u m e d to r e f l e c t diffe re n ce s in pay treatm ent of the sexes
within individual e s t a b lis h m e n t s .
Other po ssible fa c to rs which may
contribute to d iffe re n ce s in pay for m e n and w o m en include: D i f f e r ­
ences in p r o g r e s s i o n within establis h ed rate r a n g e s , since only the
actual rates paid incumbents a re colle cted ; and diffe re n ce s in specific
duties p e r f o r m e d , although the w o r k e r s are approp ria te ly c la ssified
within the s a m e su r vey job d escription .
Job description s used in
c la s s if y in g em p lo y e e s in these su rvey s a re usu ally m o r e generalized
than those u sed in individual e sta blis h m en ts and allow for minor
diffe re n ce s a m on g es ta b lis h m en ts in the specific duties p erform ed .

T h e s e s u r v e y s a re conducted on a sample b a s is b ecau se of
the u n n e c e s s a r y c o s t involved in survey ing a ll es ta b lis h m en ts .
To
obtain optim um a c c u r a c y at m in im u m c o s t , a greater proportion of
la rg e than of s m a l l e s t a b lis h m e n t s is studied.
In combining the data,
h o w e v e r , a l l e s t a b lis h m e n t s a r e given their appropriate weight.
Es­
t im a te s b as e d on the e s t a b lis h m e n t s studied a re p resen ted, th e r e fo r e ,
as rela tin g to a l l es t a b l is h m e n t s in the industry grouping and a r e a ,

of the occupations lis ted and d e s c r i b e d , or for some industry divisions

either (1) e m p lo y m e n t in the occupation is too s m a ll to provide enough
data to m e r i t p r e s e n ta tio n , or (2) there is p ossibility of d i s c lo s u r e

P r e s e n te d in table 2 a r e in d e x e s 1 and p ercen ta ges of change
in a vera ge s a l a r i e s of office c le r i c a l w o r k e r s and industrial n u r s e s ,
and in a v er a g e earnings of selec ted plant w o r k e r grou ps. The indexes
are a m e a s u r e of w ages at a given t im e , e x p r e s s e d as a percent of
wages during the b a s e period (date of the a rea su rvey conducted
between July I960 and June 1 9 6 1).
Subtracting 100 f r o m the index
yie ld s the percenta ge change in w a g es f r o m the b ase period to the
date of the index.
The pe rc e n ta ge s of change or i n c r e a s e relate to
wage changes between the indicated da tes.
T h e s e es t im a t e s are
m e a s u r e s of change in a v e r a g e s for the a re a ; they are not intended
to m e a s u r e a ver a ge pay changes in the esta blish m en ts in the a re a .

Indexes of earnings referred to in this standard text are published for most areas but not in
San Diego because the area was not surveyed in the base year o f the index series.
O ffic e c leric a l (m en and w om en):




Each of the selec ted ke y occupations within an occupational
group was a ssig n ed a weight b a s e d on its proportionate em p lo y m en t
in the occupational group.
T h e s e constant weights re fle c t b a s e y ear
em plo ym ents w h e re ve r p o s s i b l e .
Th e a v e r a g e (mean) earnings fo r
each occupation were m ultiplied by the occupation weight, and the
products for all occupations in the group w e r e total ed . The a g g re g a te s
for 2 consecutive y ears were r ela te d by dividing the a gg re ga te for
the la te r year by the aggregate for the e a r l i e r y e a r .
The resultant
re la tiv e , le ss 100 percent, shows the p e rc e n ta ge change.
The index
is the product of multiplying the b a s e y e a r r ela tiv e (100) by the rela tiv e
for the next succeeding year and continuing to m u lt ip ly (compound)
each y e a r ' s relativ e by the prev iou s y e a r ' s index.
A v e r a g e earnings

F o r o ffic e c l e r i c a l w o r k er s and industrial n u r s e s , the wage
trends rela te to w eekly s a la r i e s for the normal workw eek, ex c lu sive
of earnings at o v e r t i m e p r e m i u m r a tes .
For plant w o r k er grou ps,
they
m easure
changes in average st ra ig h t -t im e hourly earnin gs,
excluding p r e m i u m pay for over tim e and for work on week en ds,
h o lid a y s , and late sh ifts.
The percentage s are b ased on data for
s e le c t e d key occupations and include m o s t of the n u m e r ic a lly impo rtant
jo bs within each group.
Lim ita tio n s

Changes in the la bor fo r c e can cau se i n c r e a s e s or d e c r e a s e s in the
occupational a v er a g e s without actual wage ch an g es. It is conceivable
that even though all es ta blis h m en ts in an area gave wage in c r e a s e s ,
a ver a ge wages m ay have declin ed b ec au se lo w e r -p a y in g establishments
entered the are a or expanded their work f o r c e s .
S i m i la r ly , wa ges
m ay have rem ained rela tively constant, yet the a v e r a g e s for an area
m ay have risen con side r ab ly b ecau se h igh e r-pa yin g establishments
entered the a r e a .

of Data

The indexes and p ercen ta ges of change, as m e a s u r e s of
change in a r e a a v e r a g e s , a re influenced by:
(l) gen eral sa lar y and
wage c h an g es,
(2) m e r i t or other i n c r e a s e s in pay r e c e iv e d by
individual w o r k e r s while in the same jo b, and (3) changes in a vera ge
w a g es due to changes in the labor fo r c e resulting f r o m labor turn ­
o v e r , fo r c e ex pa n sion s, fo r c e reductions, and changes in the p r o p o r ­
tions of w o r k e r s em p loy ed by establishm ents with different pay l e v e l s .




The use of constant em plo ym ent weights elim inate s the effect
of changes in the proportion of w o r k e r s r epr ese n te d in each job
included in the data. The pe rc e n ta ge s of change refle c t only changes
in a vera ge pay for s t r a i g h t -t i m e h o u r s .
They a re not influenced by
changes in standard work sc h ed ules, as such, or by p r em iu m pay
fo r o v e r t i m e .
Data w e r e adjusted where n e c e s s a r y to rem ove fr o m
the indexes and pe rc e n ta ge s of change any significant effect caused
by changes in the scope of the s u rvey .

Change in Occupational Description:

Secretary

Since the Bureau*s last survey, the occupational description for
secretary was revised in order to obtain salary information for more specific
categories.

zation and the scope of the supervisor's position are considered in dis­
tinguishing 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, D) classify
these workers according to levels of responsibility. The size of the organi­

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.
