1 The St. Louis Standard M etropolitan S tatistical A rea , as defined by the Bureau of the Budget through January 1968, con sists of the city o f St. Louis; the counties of Franklin, Jefferson ,
St. C h a rles, and St. L ou is, M o .; and the counties o f M adison and St. C la ir, 111. The "w orkers within scop e of study" estim ates shown in this table p rovide a reasonably accurate description
o f the size and com position o f the labor fo r c e included in the survey. The estim ates are not intended, how ever, to serve as a basis o f com p arison with other employm ent indexes for the area
to m easure em ploym ent trends or levels sin ce (1) planning of wage surveys requires the use o f establishm ent data com piled con siderably in advance o f the payroll p eriod studied, and (2) small
establishm ents are excluded from the scop e o f the survey.
2 The 1967 edition o f the Standard Industrial C la ssifica tion Manual was used in cla ssifyin g establishm ents by industry division.
s Includes all establishm ents with total em ploym ent at o r above the minimum lim itation. A ll outlets (within the area) of com panies in such industries as trade, finance, auto repair s e rv ice ,
and m otion picture theaters are con sid ered as 1 establishm ent.
4 Includes executive, p ro fe s sio n a l, and other w orkers excluded from the separate plant and o ffice ca tegories.
5 A bbreviated to "public u tilitie s" in the A - and B -s e r ie s tables. Taxicabs and se rv ice s incidental to water transportation w ere excluded.
6 A bbreviated to "fin an ce" in the A - and B -s e r ie s tables.
7 Estim ate relates to real estate establishm ents only. W orkers from the entire industry division are represented in the S eries A tab les, but fro m the real estate portion only in
"all industry" estim ates in the S eries B tables.
8 Hotels and m otels; laundries and other personal s e rv ice s ; business s e rv ice s ; autom obile rep a ir, rental, and parking; m otion pictu res; nonprofit m em bership organizations (excluding
religious and charitable organizations); and engineering and arch itectural s e rv ice s .
9 This industry division is represented in estim ates for "all in d u stries" and "nonm anufacturing" in the S eries A tables, and for "all in d u stries" in the S eries B tables. Separate presentation
of data for this division is not made for one or m ore of the following reasons:
(1) Employment in the division is too sm all to provide enough data to m e rit separate
study, (2) the sample
was not designed initially to perm it separate presentation, (3) response was insufficient or inadequate to perm it separate presentation, and (4) there is p ossib ility o f d isclo su re of individual

Appendix.

Occupational Descriptions

The p rim ary purpose of preparing job d escrip tion s for the B ureau's wage surveys is to a ssist its field staff in cla ssifyin g into appropriate
occupations w orkers who are em ployed under a variety of p a yroll titles and d ifferent work arrangem ents from establishm ent to establishm ent and
from area to area. This perm its the grouping of occupational wage rates representing com parable job content. B ecause of this em phasis on
interestablishm ent and interarea com p arability of occupational content, the B ureau's job d escrip tions m ay d iffer significantly from those in use in
individual establishm ents or those p repared fo r other p urposes. In applying these job d escrip tion s, the B ureau's field econ om ists are instructed
to exclude working s u p erv is ors ; apprentices; le a rn e rs; beginn ers; train ees; and handicapped, p a rt-tim e, tem p orary, and p robationary w orkers.
