This bulletin provides results of an A p ril 1973 survey of occupational
earnings in the New York, New York, Standard Metropolitan Statistical A re a
(New York City (Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens, and Richmond Counties);
and Nassau, Rockland, Suffolk, and Westchester Counties). The survey was
made as part of the Bureau of Labor Statistics' annual area wage survey program .
The program is designed to yield data for individual metropolitan areas, as well
as national and regional estimates for all Standard Metropolitan A re a s in the
United States, excluding A laska and Hawaii, (as defined by the U.S. Office of
Management and Budget through Novem ber 1971).
A m ajor consideration in the area wage survey program is the need to
describe the level and movement of wages in a variety of labor m arkets, through
the analysis of (1) the level and distribution of wages by occupation, and (2) the
movement of wages by occupational category and skill level. The program de­
velops information that may be used for many purposes, including wage and
salary administration, collective bargaining, and assistance in determining plant
location. Survey results also are used by the U.S. Department of Labor to make
wage determinations under the Service Contract Act of 1965.
Currently, 96 areas are included in the program .
(See list of areas
on inside back cover.) In each area, occupational earnings data are collected
annually. Information on establishment practices and supplementary wage bene­
fits, collected every second year in the past, is now obtained every third year.
Each year after all individual area wage surveys have been completed,
two summary bulletins are issued.
The first brings together data for each
metropolitan area surveyed.
The second summary bulletin presents national
and regional estimates, projected from individual metropolitan area data.
The New York survey was conducted by the B ureau's regional office in
New York, N .Y ., under the general direction of Alvin I. M argulis, Assistant
Regional D irector for Operations. The survey could not have been accomplished
without the cooperation of the many firm s whose wage and salary data provided
the basis for the statistical information in this bulletin. The Bureau wishes to
express sincere appreciation for the cooperation received.

Note:
Reports on occupational earnings and supplementary wage provisions in
the New York area are available for the contract cleaning (July 1971); women's
and m is s e s ' dresses (August 1971); and life insurance industries (Decem ber 1971).
A lso available are listings of union wage rates for building trades, printing
trades, local-transit operating em ployees, local truckdrivers and helpers, and
grocery store employees. F re e copies of these are available from the Bureau's
regional offices. (See back cover for addresses.)

Special payments provided for work in designated parts of the area by companies not consid­

problems.
Such instances are few and do not have a large impact on the published data.

The median
designates position— half of the employees surveyed receive m ore than the rate shown; half receive less than the rate shown,
The middle
range is defined by 2 rates of pay; a fourth of the w orkers earn less than the low er of these rates and a fourth earn more than the higher rate.
3 Excludes premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts.
