Preface

Eighty-six 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 most of the areas.

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 geographic 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 occupa­
tional category and skill level, and (2) the structure and level of
wages among areas and industry divisions.

This bulletin presents results of the survey in Philadelphia,
Pa.— .J ., in November 1966. The Standard Metropolitan Statistical
N
Area, as defined by the Bureau of the Budget through April 1966,
consists of Three Inner Counties of Delaware and Philadelphia
Counties, Pa., and Camden County, N.J.; and Five Outer Counties
of Bucks, Chester, and Montgomery Counties, Pa., 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 Philip Goldstein, under the direction of Thomas N.
Wakin.
The study was under the general direction of Frederick W.
Mueller, Assistant Regional Director for W a g e s and Industrial
Relations.

At the end of each survey, an individual area bulletin pre­
sents 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 information which has been projected from individual metro­
politan area data to relate to geographic regions and the United States.

Area W age Survey----The Philadelphia, Pa.—N.J., Metropolitan Area
Introduction
bonuses and incentive earnings are included. Where weekly hours are
reported, as for office clerical occupations, reference is to the stand­
ard workweek (rounded to the nearest half hour) for which employees
receive their regular straight-time salaries (exclusive of pay for
overtime at regular and/or premium rates). Average weekly earnings
for these occupations have been rounded to the nearest half dollar.

This area is 1 of 86 in which the U.S. Department of Labor's
Bureau of Labor Statistics conducts surveys of occupational earnings
and related benefits on an areawide basis.
In this area, data were
obtained by personal visits of Bureau field economists 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.

The averages presented reflect composite, areawide esti­
mates.
Industries and establishments differ in pay level and job
staffing and, thus, contribute differently to the estimates 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.
Similarly, 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
contribute to differences in pay for men and women include: Differ­
ences in progression within established rate ranges, since only the
actual rates paid incumbents are collected; and differences in specific
duties performed, 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.

These surveys are conducted on a sample 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 small 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 material 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 the appendix. The earnings data following
the job titles are for all industries combined. Earnings data for some
of the occupations listed and described, or for some industry divisions
within occupations, are not presented in the A -series tables, because
either (1) employment in the occupation is too small to provide enough
data to merit presentation, or (2) there is possibility of disclosure
of individual establishment data.

Occupational employment estimates 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 estimates 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 materially affect the accuracy of the
earnings data.
Establishment Practices and Supplementary Wage Provisions
Information is presented (in the B -series tables) on selected
establishment practices and supplementary wage provisions as they re­
late to plant and office workers. Administrative, executive, and pro­
fessional employees, and force-account construction workers who are
utilized as a separate work force are excluded.
"Plant workers" in­
clude working foremen and all nonsupervisory workers (including leadmen and trainees) engaged in nonoffice functions. "Office workers"

Occupational employment and earnings data are shown for
full-time workers, i. e. , those hired to work a regular weekly schedule
in the given occupational classification. Earnings data exclude pre­
mium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and
late shifts.
Nonproduction bonuses are excluded, but cost-of-living

include working supervisors and nonsupervisory workers performing
clerical or related functions.
Cafeteria workers and routemen are
excluded in manufacturing industries, but included in nonmanufacturing
industries.
Minimum entrance salaries for women office workers (table
B- l ) relate only to the establishments visited.
They are presented in
terms 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 (1) establishment policy, 1 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 nothern 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-shift workers in an establishment are tabulated as applying to
all of the plant or office workers of that establishment.
Scheduled
weekly hours are those which full-time employees were expected to
work, whether they were paid for at straight-time or overtime rates.
Paid holidays; paid vacations; health, insurance, and pension
plans; and premium pay for overtime work (tables B -4 through B-8)
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 practices listed.
Sums of individual
items in tables B -2 through B -8 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 formal basis; i. e. , (1) 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 time.
The summary of vacation plans (table B-5) is limited to for­
mal policies, excluding informal arrangements whereby time off with
pay is granted at the discretion of the employer. Estimates exclude
vacation-savings plans and those which offer "extended" or "sabbati­
cal" 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 estimates are provided according to
employer practice in computing vacation payments, such as time pay­
ments, percent of annual earnings, or flat-sum amounts. However, in
1
An establishment was considered as having a policy if
conditions: (1) Operated late shifts at the time of the survey, or (2) had
late shifts. An establishment was considered as having formal provisions
shifts during the 12 months prior to the survey, or (2) had provisions in
late shifts.




the tabulations of vacation pay, payments not on a time basis were con­
verted to a time basis; 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 (tables B -6 and B-7) for which at least a part of the cost is
borne by the employer, excepting only legal requirements such as
workmen's compensation, social security, and railroad retirement.
Such plans include those underwritten by a commercial insurance
company 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.
Selected health insurance benefits provided em­
ployees and their dependents are also presented.
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,2 plans are included only if the employer (1) 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 plans 3 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
(1) 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
mercial 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 worker's life.
Data on overtime premium pay (table B -8 ), the hours after
which premium pay is received and the corresponding rate of pay, are
presented by daily and weekly provisions. Daily overtime refers to
work in excess of a specified number of hours a day regardless of
the number of hours worked on other days of the pay period.
Weekly
overtime refers to work in excess of a specified number of hours
per week regardless of the day on which it is performed, the number
of hours per day, or number of days worked.

2 The temporary disability laws in California and Rhode Island do not require employer
it met either of the following
contributions.

minimum number of days of sick leave available to each employee.
Such a plan need not be

1 The Philadelphia Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area, as defined by the Bureau of the Budget through April 1966, consists 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.
The "w orkers within scope of study"
estim ates shown in this table provide a reasonably accurate description of the size and composition of the labor force included in the survey. The estim ates are not intended, however, to serve
as a basis of com parison with other employment indexes for the area to measure employment trends or levels since (1) planning of wage surveys requires the use of establishment data compiled
considerably in advance of the payroll period studied, and (2) sm all establishments are excluded from the scope of the survey.
2 The 1957 revised edition of the Standard Industrial Classification Manual and the 1963 Supplement were used in classifying establishments by industry division.
3 Includes all establishm ents with total employment at or above the minimum limitation. A ll outlets (within the area) of companies in such industries as trade, finance, auto repair service,
and motion picture theaters are considered as 1 establishment.
4 Includes executive, professional, and other workers excluded from the separate plant and office categories.
5 Taxicabs and services incidental to water transportation were excluded.
6 Estim ate relates to real estate establishments only. Workers from the entire industry division are represented in the Series A tables, but from the real estate portion only in "a ll industry"
estim ates in the Series B tables.
7 H otels; personal serv ice s; business services; automobile repair shops; motion pictures; nonprofit m em bership organizations (excluding religious and charitable organizations); and engineering
and architectural service s.




Almost three-fifths of the workers within scope of the survey in the Philadelphia
area were employed in manufacturing firm s. The following table presents the major industry
groups and specific industries as a percent of all manufacturing:

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. The indexes
are a measure of wages at a given time, expressed as a percent of
wages during the base period (date of the area survey conducted
between July I960 and June 196l).
Subtracting 100 from the index
yields the percentage change in wages from the base period to the
date of the index.
The percentages of change or increase relate to
wage changes between the indicated dates.
These estimates are
measures of change in averages for the area; they are not intended
to measure average pay changes in the establishments in the area.
Method of Computing

in the occupational group. These constant weights reflect base year
employments wherever possible.
The average (mean) earnings for
each occupation were multiplied by the occupation weight, and the
products for all occupations in the group were totaled. The aggregates
for 2 consecutive years were related by dividing the aggregate for
the later year by the aggregate for the earlier year. The resultant
relative, less 100 percent, shows the percentage change. The index
is the product of multiplying the base year relative (100) by the relative
for the next succeeding year and continuing to multiply (compound)
each year's relative by the previous year's index. Average earnings
for the following occupations were used in computing the wage trends:

For office clerical workers and industrial nurses, the wage
trends relate to weekly salaries for the normal workweek, exclusive
of earnings at overtime premium rates.
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 include most of the numerically important
jobs within each group.

Changes in the labor force can cause increases or decreases m the
occupational averages without actual wage changes. It is conceivable
that even though all establishments in an area gave wage increases,
average wages may have declined because lower paying establishments
entered the area or expanded their work forces.
Similarly, wages
may have remained relatively constant, yet the averages for an area
may have risen considerably because higher paying establishments
entered the area.

Limitations of Data
The indexes and percentages of change, as measures of
change in area averages, are influenced by: (l) general salary and
wage changes, (Z) merit 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 resulting from labor turn­
over, force expansions, force reductions, and changes in the propor­
tions of workers employed by establishments with different pay levels.




The use of constant employment weights eliminates the effect
of changes in the proportion of workers represented in each job
included 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. Data were adjusted where necessary to remove from
the indexes and percentages of change any significant effect caused
by changes in the scope of the survey.

The median designates position— half of the employees surveyed receive more
than the rate shown; half receive less than the rate shown.
The middle range is defined by 2 rates of pay; a fourth of the workers earn less than the lower of these rates and a fourth earn more than the
higher rate.
3 Transportation, communication, and other public utilities.
4 Finance, insurance, and real estate.

1 Includes basic plans only. Excludes plans such as vacation-savings and those plans which offer "extended" or "sabba tical" benefits beyond basic plans to workers with qualifying lengths
of service.
Typical of such exclusions are plans in the steel, aluminum, and can industries.
2 Includes data for real estate in addition to those industry divisions shown separately.
3 Transportation, communication, and other public utilities.
4 Finance, insurance, and real estate.
5 L ess than 0. 5 percent.
6 Includes payments other than "length of t im e ," such as percentage of annual earnings or flat-su m payments, converted to an equivalent time basis; for example, a payment of 2 percent
of annual earnings was considered as 1 week's pay.
Periods of service were arbitrarily chosen and do not necessarily reflect the individual provisions for progressions.
For example, the
changes in proportions indicated at 10 yea rs' service include changes in provisions occurring between 5 and 10 years.
Estim ates are cumulative.
Thus, the proportion receiving 3 weeks' pay
or m ore after 5 years includes those who receive 3 weeks' pay or m ore after fewer years of service.

Appendix. 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,
