An establishm ent is con sidered to have a contract covering a ll plantworkers or
officew orkers if a m ajority of such w ork ers a re covered by a labor-m anagem ent agreem ent.
T h erefore, a ll other plantw orkers or officew orkers are employed in establishm ents that
either do not have labor-m anagem ent con tracts in effect, or have con tracts that apply to
fewer than half of their plantw orkers or officew orkers. E stim a tes are not n e c e ssa rily
rep resen tative of the extent to which a ll w orkers in the a re a may be covered by the pro­
visions of labor-m anagem ent agreem en ts, becau se sm all establishm ents a re excluded and
the in du strial scope of the survey is lim ited.

The p rim ary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the B u reau 's wage surveys is to a s s is t its field staff in classify in g into appropriate
occupations w orkers who are employed under a variety of payroll titles and different work arrangem ents from establishm ent to establishm ent and
from a re a to a re a . This perm its the grouping of occupational wage rate s representing com parable job content. B ecau se of this em phasis on
interestablishm ent and in terare a com parability of occupational content, the B u reau 's job descriptions m ay differ significantly from those in use in
individual establishm ents or those prepared for other p u rp oses. In applying these job d escrip tion s, the B u reau 's field econom ists are instructed
to exclude working su p e rv iso rs; apprentices; le a rn e rs; beginners; tra in e e s; and handicapped, p art-tim e, tem porary, and probationary w orkers.

in achieving d esired end products.
At this level, program ing is difficult because com puter equipment m ust be organized to
produce sev eral in terrelated but d iv erse products from numerous and d iv erse data elem ents.
A wide variety and extensive number of internal p ro c essin g actions m ust occur. This requ ires
such actions as development of common operations which can be reu sed, establishm ent of
