La rge establishments

1 The Boston Standard Metropolitan Statistical A re a , as defined by the O ffice of Management and Budget (fo rm e rly the Bureau of the Budget)
through January 1968, consists of Suffolk County, 15 communities in Essex County, 30 in M iddlesex County, 20 in N orfolk County, and 9 in Plymouth
County. The "w orkers within scope of study" estimates shown in this table provide a reasonably accurate description of the size and composition
of the labor force included in the survey. The estimates are not intended, however, to serve as a basis of comparison 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) small establishments are excluded from the scope of the survey.
2 The 1967 edition of the Standard Industrial C lassification Manual was used in classifying establishments by industry division.
3 Includes a ll establishments with total employment at or above the minimum lim itation. 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 all w orkers in a ll establishments with total employment (within the area) at or above the minimum lim itation.
5 Abbreviated to "public u tilities" in the A -s e rie s tables. Taxicabs and services incidental to water transportation w ere excluded. Boston's
transit system is municipally operated and is excluded by definition from the scope of the study.
6 Abbreviated to "finance" in the A -s e r ie s tables.
7 Hotels and m otels; laundries and other personal services; business services; automobile rep air, rental, and parking; motion pictures; nonprofit
m embership organizations (excluding religious and charitable organizations); and engineering and architectural services.




Over two-fifths of the w orkers within scope of the survey in the Boston area w ere employed in manufacturing firm s.
presents the m ajor industry groups and specific industries as a percent of all manufacturing:

The prim ary 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 perm its the grouping of occupational wage rates representing comparable job content. Because of this emphasis on
interestablishment and interarea com parability of occupational content, the Bureau's job descriptions may d iffer 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, tem porary, and probationary workers.
