1 An establishment was considered as having a policy if it met either of the following
conditions: (1) Operated late shifts at the time of the survey, or (2 ) had formal provisions covering
late shifts. An establishment was considered as having formal provisions if it (1 ) had operated late
shifts during the 12 months prior to the survey, or (2 ) had provisions in written form for operating
late shifts.

The temporary disability laws in California and Rhode Island do not require employer
contributions.
An establishment was considered as having a formal .plan if it established at least the
minimum number of days of sick leave available to each employee.
Such a plan need not be
written, but informal sick leave allowances, determined on an individual basis, were excluded.

pations and include m o s t of the nu m e ric a lly important job s within
each gr oup.

Changes in the l a b o r fo rc e can cause in c r e a s e s or d e c r e a s e s in the
occupational a v e r a g e s without actual w a g e changes. It is conce ivable
that even though all esta b li sh m ents in an a r e a gave w age i n c r e a s e s ,

L im itatio ns of Data
The indexes and p ercentages 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 r e influenced by:
(1) g e n e ra l s a l a r y and
w a g e changes, (2) m e r i t or other in c re a s e s in pay r e c e iv e d by indi­
vid ual w o r k e r s w hile in the same job, and (3) changes in a v e r a g e
w a g e s due to changes in the lab o r force resulting f r o m l a b o r tu rn­
o v e r, fo r c e e x p ans io n 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 lo y ed by es tablishments with diffe rent pay l e v e ls .




The use of constant em plo ym ent wei gh ts el im inates the effect
of changes in the p ro po rtio n of w o r k e r s re p r e s e n te d in each job in­
cluded in the data.
The p erce n tag es of change re fle c t only changes
in a v e r a g e pay fo r str a ig h t-t im e hours.
T hey a r e not influenced by
changes in standard w o r k sch edules, as such, or by p re m iu m pay

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;
apprentices; learners; beginners; trainees; and handicapped, part-tim e, temporary, and probationary workers.

sified by type of machine, as follows:

BOOKKEEPING-MACHINE OPERATOR
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.

Biller, machine (billing machine). Uses a special billing m a­
chine (Moon Hopkins, Elliott Fisher, Burroughs, etc. , 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 pre­
determined discounts and shipping charges, and entry of necessary
extensions, which may or may not be computed on the billing ma­
chine, and totals which are automatically accumulated by machine.
The operation usually involves a large number of carbon copies of the
bill being prepared and is often done on a fanfold machine.

Class A . Keeps a set of records requiring a knowledge of and
experience in basic bookkeeping principles, and familiarity 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.
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, etc. , which
may 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 m a­
chine autom atically accumulates figures on a number of vertical

Class B. Under supervision, performs one or more routine a c ­
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

of other duties.
