T h e " w or ke r^ withifl
scope of study" estimates s h o w n in this table provide a reasonably accurate description of the size and composition of the labor force included in the survey.
T h e estimates are not intended,
ho wever, to serve as a basis of c o m p a r i s o n with other e m p l o y m e n t indexes for the area to m e a s u r e e m p l o y m e n t trends or levels since (1) planning of w a g e surveys requires the us e of establishment
data co mpiled considerably in ad va nc e of the payroll period studied, and (2) small establishments are excluded f r o m the scope of the survey.
2 T h e 1967 edition of the Standard Industrial Classification M a n u a l w a s us ed in classifying establishments b y industry division.
3 Includes all establishments with total e m p l o y m e n t at or above the m i n i m u m limitation. All outlets (within the area) of c o mp an ie s in such industries as trade, finance, auto repair service,
and m o ti on picture theaters are considered as 1 establishment.
4 Includes executive, professional, and other w o r k e r s excluded f r o m the separate plant and office categories.
5 Taxicabs and services incidental to water transportation w e r e excluded.
Local transit in the city of Philadelphia is governmentally operated and excluded by definition f r o m the scope of
the study.
6 Es timate relates to real estate establishments only.
W o r k e r s f r o m the entire industry division are represented in the Series A tables, but f r o m the real estate portion only in "all
industry" iestimates in the Series B tables.
7 Hotels and motels; laundries and other personal services; business services; automobile repair, rental, and parking; mo ti on pictures; nonprofit m e m b e r s h i p organizations (excluding
