1 The F ort Worth 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 1.968, consists of Johnson and Tarrant Counties. The "w ork ers 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) sm all 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 all establishments 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 all w orkers in all establishments with total employment (within the area) at or above the minimum limitation.
5 Abbreviated to "public u tilities" in the A -s e rie s tables. Taxicabs and services incidental to water transportation w ere excluded.
6 This industry division is represented in estimates fo r " a ll industries" and "nonmanufacturing" in the Series A 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 erit 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 possibility of disclosure of individual establishment data.
7 Hotels and m otels; laundries and other personal services; business services; automobile rep air, rental, and parking; motion pictures;
nonprofit membership organizations (excluding religious and charitable organizations); and engineering and architectural services.




O ver three-fifths of the w orkers within scope of the survey in the F ort Worth area
w ere employed in manufacturing firm s. The following presents the m ajor industry groups
and specific industries as a percent of all manufacturing:

Changes in the la b or fo r c e can cause in c re a s e s o r d ec re a s e s in the

O c c u p a tio n a l D e s c rip tio n s

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.
