AREA WAGE SURVEY

Providence— Warwick— Pawtucket, Rhode Island—
Massachusetts, Metropolitan Area, June 1975
Bulletin 1850-27




U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
_
Bureau of Labor Statistics




Preface
This bulletin provides results of a June 1975 survey of occupational earnings in the
Providence—
Warwick—
Pawtucket, Rhode Island—
Massachusetts, Standard Metropolitan Statis­
tical Area (the following areas in Rhode Island: Central F a lls, Cranston, East Providence,
Pawtucket, Providence, and Woonsocket cities, and eight towns in Providence County;
Narragansett, North Kingstown, and South Kingstown towns in Washington County; Warwick
city and three towns in Kent County; all of Bristol County; and Jamestown town in Newport
County; and in Massachusetts: Attleboro city and seven contiguous towns in Bristol, Norfolk,
and W orcester 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
Statistical A reas in the United States, excluding Alaska and Hawaii.
A major 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 develops 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, 82 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 benefits is 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 estim ates, projected from indi­
vidual metropolitan area data.
The Providence—
Warwick—
Pawtucket survey was conducted by the Bureau's regional
office in Boston, M a ss., under the general direction of Paul V . Mulkern, Associate Assistant
Regional Director for Operations. The survey could not have been accomplished without
the cooperation of the many firms 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
Providence—
Warwick—
Pawtucket area are available for the auto dealer repair shops (June
1973), laundry and dry cleaning (June 1975), and moving and storage (June 1975) industries.
A lso available are listings of union wage rates for building trades, printing trades, localtransit operating employees, local truckdrivers and helpers, and grocery store em ployees.
Free copies of these are available from the Bureau's regional offices. (See back cover for
addresses.)

NOTE: The percent increases presented in this table are based on changes in average
hourly earnings for establishments reporting the trend jobs in both the current and previous
year (matched establishments). They are not affected by changes in average earnings
resulting from employment shifts among establishments or turnover of establishments
included in survey samples. The percent increases, however, are still affected by factors
other than wage increases. Hirings, layoffs, and turnover may affect an establishment
average for an occupation when workers are paid under plans providing a range of wage rates
for individual jobs. In periods of increased hiring, for example, new employees enter at the
bottom of the'range, depressing the average without a change in wage rates.
These wage trends are not linked to the wage indexes previously published for this
area because the wage indexes measured changes in area averages whereas these wage trends
measure changes in matched establishment averages. Other characteristics of these wage
trends which differ from the discontinued indexes include (1) earnings data of office clerica l
workers and industrial nurses are converted to an hourly basis, (2) trend estimates are
provided for nonmanufacturing establishments where possible, and (3) trend estimates are
provided for electronic data processing jobs.
For a m ore detailed description of the method used to compute these wage trends, see
"Improving Area Wage Survey Indexes," Monthly Labor Review, January 1973, pp. 52-57.

Footnotes
1 Standard hours reflect the workweek

The middle range is defined by 2 rates of pay; a fourth of the workers earn less than the lower of these rates and a fourth earn m ore than the higher rate.
and for work on weekends, holidays, and* late shifts.

Appendix A
Area wage and related benefits data are obtained by personal visits of Bureau field represent­
atives at 3-year in terv als.1 In each of the intervening years, information on employment and
occupational earnings is collected by a combination of personal visit; mail questionnaire, and telephone
interview from establishments participating in the previous survey.
In each of the 8 2 2 areas currently surveyed, data are obtained from representative estab­
lishments within six broad industry divisions: Manufacturing; transportation, communication, and other
public utilities; wholesale trade; retail trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; and services. Major
industry groups excluded from these studies are government operations and the construction and
extractive industries. Establishments having fewer than a prescribed number of workers are omitted
because of insufficient employment in the occupations studied. Separate tabulations are provided for
each of the broad industry divisions which meet publication criteria.
These surveys are conducted on a sample basis. The sampling procedures involve detailed
stratification of all establishments within the scope of an individual area survey by industry and number
of em ployees. F rom this stratified universe a probability sample is selected, with each establishment
having a predetermined chance of selection. To obtain optimum accuracy at minimum cost, a greater
proportion of large than small establishments is selected. When data are combined, each establishment
is weighted according to its probability of selection, so that unbiased estimates are generated. F or
example, if one out of four establishments is selected, it is given a weight of four to represent itself
plus three others. An alternate of the same original probability is chosen in the same industry-size
classification if data are not available for the original sample member. If no suitable substitute is
available, additional weight is assigned to a sample member that is similar to the missing unit.
Occupations and Earnings
Occupations selected for study are common to a variety of manufacturing and nonmanufacturing
industries, and are of the following types: (1) Office clerical; (2) professional and technical; (3)
maintenance and powerplant; and (4) custodial and material movement. Occupational classification is
based on a uniform set of job descriptions designed to take account of interestablishment variation
in duties within the same job. Occupations selected for study are listed and described in appendix B.
Unless otherwise indicated, the earnings data following the job titles are for all industries combined.
Earnings data for some of the occupations listed and described, or for some industry divisions within
occupations, are not presented in the A -series tables, because either (1) employment in the occupation
is too small to provide enough data to m erit presentation, or (2) there is possibility of disclosure of
individual establishment data. Separate m en's and women's earnings data are not presented when the
number of workers not identified by sex is 20 percent or m ore of the men or women identified in an
occupation. Earnings data not shown separately for industry divisions are included in all industries
combined data, where shown. Likewise, data are included in the overall classification when a sub­
classification of electronics technicians, secretaries, or truckdrivers is not shown or information to
subclassify is not available.
Occupational employment and earnings data are shown for full-time w orkers, i.e ., those hired
to work a regular weekly schedule. Earnings data exclude premium pay for overtime and for work on
weekends, holidays, and late shifts. Nonproduction bonuses are excluded, but cost-of-livin g allowances
and incentive bonuses are included. Weekly hours for office clerica l and professional and technical
occupations refer to the standard workweek (rounded to the nearest half hour) for which employees
receive regular straight-time salaries (exclusive of pay for overtime at regular and/or premium rates).
Average weekly earnings for these occupations are rounded to the nearest half dollar.
These surveys measure the level of occupational earnings in an area at a particular time.
Comparisons of individual occupational averages over time may not reflect expected wage changes.
The averages for individual jobs are affected by changes in wages and employment patterns. F or
example, proportions of workers employed by high- or low-wage firms may change, or high-wage
workers may advance to better jobs and be replaced by new workers at lower rates. Such shifts in
employment could decrease an occupational average even though most establishments in an area
increase wages during the year. Trends in earnings of occupational groupq, shown in table A - 7,
are better indicators of wage trends than individual jobs within the groups.

Average earnings reflect com posite, areawide estimates. Industries and establishments differ
in pay level and job staffing, and thus contribute differently to the estimates for each job. Pay
averages may fail to reflect accurately the wage differential among jobs in individual establishments.
Average pay levels for men and women in selected occupations should not be assumed to
reflect differences in pay of the sexes within individual establishments. Factors which may contribute
to differences include progression within established rate ranges, since only the rates paid incumbents
are collected, and performance of specific duties within the general survey job descriptions. Job
descriptions used to classify employees in these surveys usually are m ore generalized than those used
in individual establishments and allow for minor differences among establishments in specific
duties performed.
Occupational employment estimates represent the total in all establishments within the scope
of the study and not the number actually surveyed. Because occupational structures among establish­
ments differ, estimates of occupational employment obtained from the sample of establishments studied
serve only to indicate the relative importance of the jobs studied. These differences in occupational
structure do not affect materially the accuracy of the earnings data.
Wage trends fo r selected occupational groups

of increase, where shown, reflect the amount of increase for 12 months when the time
surveys was other than 12 months. Annual rates are based on the assumption that wages
a constant rate between surveys.

L aborers, m aterial handling
Percent changes for individual areas in the program are computed as follows:
1. Each occupation is assigned a weight based on its proportionate employment in the selected
group of occupations in the base year.
2. These weights are used to compute group averages. Each occupation's average (mean)
earnings is multiplied by its weight. The products are totaled to obtain a group average.
3. The ratio of group averages for 2 consecutive years is computed by dividing the average
fo r the current year by the average for the earlier year. The results— expressed as a percent— less 100
is the percent change.
Establishment practices and supplementary wage provisions

1 Personal visits were on a 2 -year cycle before July 1972.
2 Included in the 82 areas are 12 studies conducted by the Bureau under contract. These areas are Akron, Ohio; Austin, T e x .; Binghamton,
N. Y . —P a .; Birmingham, A l a .; Fort Lauderdale—Hollywood and West Palm Beach—Boca Raton, F l a .; Lexington—
Fayette, K y .; Melbourne—T itu sv illeCocoa, F l a .; Norfolk—Virginia Beach—Portsmouth and Newport News—Hampton, Va. —N .C .; Poughkeepsie—
Kingston—Newburgh, N .Y .; Raleigh—
Durham, N. C . ; Syracuse, N. Y . ; and Westchester County, N .Y . In addition, the Bureau conducts more limited area studies in approximately 70
areas at the request of the Employment Standards Administration o f the U. S. Department of Labor.




Tabulations on selected establishment practices and supplementary wage provisions (B -series
tables) are not presented in this bulletin. Information for these, tabulations is collected at 3-year
intervals.1 These tabulations on minimum entrance salaries for inexperienced office workers; shift
differentials; scheduled weekly hours and days; paid holidays; paid vacations; and health, insurance, and
pension plans are presented (in the B -series tables) in previous bulletins for this area.

1 The Providence—
Warwick—
Pawtucket Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area, as defined by the Office of Management and Budget through
February 1974, consists of the following areas in Rhode Island: Central Falls, Cranston, East Providence, Pawtucket, Providence, and Woonsocket
cities, and eight towns in Providence County; Narragansett, North Kingstown, and South Kingstown towns in Washington County; Warwick city and three
towns in Kent County; all of Bristol County; and Jamestown town in Newport County, and in Massachusetts: Attleboro city, and seven contiguous
towns in B ristol, Norfolk, and W orcester Counties. The "workers 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. Estimates are not intended, however, for comparison
with other employment indexes to measure employment trends or levels since (1) planning of wage surveys requires 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 Classification Manual was used in classifying establishments by industry division.
3 Includes all establishments with total employment at or above the minimum limitation. All outlets (within the area) of companies in industries
such as trade, finance, auto repair service, and motion picture theaters are considered as 1 establishment.
4 Includes all workers in all establishments with total employment (within the area) at or above the minimum limitation.
5 Abbreviated to "public utilities" in the A -se rie s tables. Taxicabs and services incidental to water transportation were excluded.
6 This division is represented in estimates for "all industries" and "nonmanufacturing" in the A -series tables. Separate presentation of data
is not made for one or more of the following reasons: (1) Employment is too small to provide enough data to merit separate study, (2) the sample
was not designed initially to permit separate presentation, (3) response was insufficient or inadequate to permit separate presentation, and (4) there
is possibility of disclosure of individual establishment data.
7 Hotels and motels; laundries and other personal services; business services; automobile repair, rental, and parking; motion pictures;
nonprofit membership organizations (excluding religious and charitable organizations); and engineering and architectural services.

NOTE: Since the last survey in the Providence—
Warwick—
Pawtucket, R.I.—
Mass, area,
the Standard Metropolitan Statistical A rea, (SMSA), has been changed to exclude Barrington,
Franklin, and Wrentham towns in Norfolk County, Mass, and to include Scituate town in
Providence County, South Kingstown town in Washington County and Norton town in Bristol
County, R.I. The change in geography had little impact on the survey results.

Appendix B. Occupational Descriptions
The primary 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 permits the grouping of occupational wage rates representing comparable job content. Because of this emphasis on
interestablishment and interarea comparability of occupational content, the Bureau's job descriptions may differ significantly from those in use in
individual establishments or those prepaired 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, temporary, and probationary workers.

OFFICE
BILLER, MACHINE

CLERKS, ACCOUNTING

Prepares statements, b ills, and invoices on a machine other than am ordinary or electrom atic
typewriter. May also keep records as to billings or shipping charges or perform other clerica l work
incidental to billing operations. F or wage study purposes, billers, machine, are classified by type of
machine, as follows:

Perform s one or m ore accounting clerica l tasks such as posting to registers and ledgers;
reconciling bank accounts; verifying the internal consistency, completeness, and mathematical accuracy
of accounting documents; assigning prescribed accounting distribution codes; examining and verifying
for clerica l accuracy various types of reports, lists, calculations, posting, etc.; or preparing simple or
assisting in preparing m ore complicated journal vouchers. May work in either a manual or automated
accounting system.

B iller, machine (billing machine). Uses a special billing machine (combination typing amd
adding machine) to prepare bills amd invoices from custom ers' purchase orders, internally prepared
ord ers, shipping memorandums, etc. Usually involves application of predetermined discounts and
shipping charges and entry of necessary extensions, which may or may not be computed on the billing
machine, and totals which are automatically accumulated by machine. The operation usually involves a
large number of carbon copies of the bill being prepared and is often done on a fanfold machine.
B iller, machine (bookkeeping machine). Uses a bookkeeping machine (with or without a
typewriter keyboard) to prepare custom ers' bills as part of the accounts receivable operation.
Generally involves the simultaneous entry of figures on custom ers' ledger record. The machine
automatically accumulates figures on a number of vertical columns and computes and usually prints
automatically the debit or credit balances. Does not involve a knowledge of bookkeeping. Works from
uniform and standard types of sales and credit slips.

The work requires a knowledge of clerica l methods and office practices and procedures which
relates to the clerica l processing and recording of transactions and accounting information. With
experience, the worker typically becom es familiar with the bookkeeping and accounting terms and
procedures used in the assigned work, but is not required to have a knowledge of the formal principles
of bookkeeping and accounting.
Positions are classified into levels on the basis of the following definitions.
Class A. Under general supervision, perform s accounting clerica l operations which require
the application of experience and judgment, for example, clerically processing complicated or
nonrepetitive accounting transactions, selecting among a substantial variety of prescribed accounting
codes and classifications, or tracing transactions though previous accounting actions to determine
source of discrepancies. May be assisted by one or m ore class B accounting clerks.

BOOKKEEPING-MACHINE OPERATOR
Operates a bookkeeping machine (with or without a typewriter keyboard) to keep a record of
business transactions.

Class_B. Under close supervision, following detailed instructions and standardized procedures,
perform s one or m ore routine accounting clerica l operations, such as posting to ledgers, cards, or
worksheets where identification of items and locations of postings are clearly indicated; checking
accuracy and completeness of standardized and repetitive records or accounting documents; and coding
documents using a few prescribed accounting codes.

Class A . Keeps a set of records requiring a knowledge of and'experience in basic bookkeeping
principles, and familiarity with the structure of the particular accounting system used. Determines
proper records and distribution of debit and credit items to be used in each phase of the work. May

required; alternate programs are provided in case original program needs major change or cannot be
corrected within a reasonably tim e. In common erro r situations, diagnoses cause and takes corrective
action. This usually involves applying previously programmed corrective steps, or using standard
correction techniques.

F or wage study purposes, computer operators are classified as follows:
Class A. Operates independently, or under only general direction, a computer running
programs with most of the following characteristics: New programs are frequently tested and
introduced; scheduling requirements are of critical importance to minimize downtime; the programs
are of complex design so that identification of error source often requires a working knowledge of the
total program , and alternate program s may not be available. May give direction and guidance to
lower level operators.




OR
Operates under direct supervision a computer running programs or segments of programs
with the characteristics described for class A. May assist a higher level operator by independently

programs. Usually has received some form al training in computer operation. May assist higher level
operator on complex programs.

Converts statements of business problems, typically prepared by a systems analyst, into a
sequence of detailed instructions which are required to solve the problems by automatic data processing
equipment. Working from charts or diagrams, the programmer develops the precise instructions which,
when entered into the computer system in coded language, cause the manipulation of data to achieve
desired results. Work involves most of the following: Applies knowledge of computer capabilities,
mathematics, logic employed by computers, and particular subject matter involved to analyze charts
and diagrams of the problem to be programmed; develops sequence of program steps; writes detailed
flow charts to show order in which data will be processed; converts these charts to coded instructions
for machine to follow; tests and corrects programs; prepares instructions for operating personnel
during production run; analyzes, reviews, and alters programs to increase operating efficiency or
adapt to new requirements; maintains records of program development and revisions. (NOTE: Workers
performing both systems analysis and programming should be classified as systems analysts if this is
the skill used to determine their pay.)
Does not include employees prim arily responsible for the management or supervision of other
electronic data processing em ployees, or programmers prim arily concerned with s c ie n tific and/or
engineering problems.
For wage study purposes, programmers are classified as follows:
Glass A. Works independently or under only general direction on complex problems which
require competence in all phases of programming concepts and practices. Working from diagrams
and charts which identify the nature of desired results, m ajor processing steps to be accomplished,
and the relationships between various steps of the problem solving routine; plans the full range
of programming actions needed to efficiently utilize the computer system in achieving desired
end products.
At this level, programming is difficult because computer equipment must be organized to
produce several interrelated but diverse products from numerous and diverse data elements. A wide
variety and extensive number of internal processing actions must occur. This requires such actions as
development of common operations which can be reused, establishment of linkage points between
operations, adjustments to data when program requirements exceed computer storage capacity, and
substantial manipulation and resequencing of data elements to form a highly integrated program.

For wage study purposes, systems analysts are classified as follows:
Class A. Works independently or under only general direction on complex problems involvingall phases of system analysis. Problems are complex because of diverse sources of input data and
multiple-use requirements of output data. (For example, develops an integrated production scheduling,
inventory control, cost analysis, and sales analysis record in which every item of each type is
automatically processed through the full system of records and appropriate followup actions are initiated
by the computer.) Confers with persons concerned to determine the data processing problems and
advises subject-matter personnel on the implications of new or revised systems of data processing
operations. Makes recommendations, if needed, for approval of m ajor systems installations or changes
and for obtaining equipment.
May provide functional direction to lower level systems analysts who are assigned to assist.
Class B. Works independently or under only general direction on problems that are relatively
uncomplicated to analyze, plan, program, and operate. Problem s are of limited complexity because
sources of input data are homogeneous and the output data are closely related. (For example, develops
systems for maintaining depositor accounts in a bank, maintaining accounts receivable in a retail
establishment, or maintaining inventory accounts in a manufacturing or wholesale establishment.)
Confers with persons concerned to determine the data processing problems and advises subjectmatter personnel on the implications of the data processing systems to be applied.
OR

of a sin gle activity. A ssignm ents are designed to develop and expand practical experience in the
application of procedures and skills required for systems analysis work. For example, may assist a
higher level systems analyst by preparing the detailed specifications required by programm ers from
information developed by the higher level analyst.

May provide functional direction to lower level programm ers who are assigned to assist.
Class B. Works independently or under only general direction on relatively simple programs,
or on Simple segments of complex programs. Programs (or segments) usually process information to
produce data in two or three varied sequences or formats. Reports and listings are produced by
refining, adapting, arraying, or making minor additions to or deletions from input data which are
readily available. While numerous records may be processed, the data have been refined in prior
actions so that the accuracy and sequencing of data can be tested by using a few routine checks.
Typically, the program deals with routine record-keeping type operations.
OR
Works on complex programs (as described for class A) under close direction of a higher
level programmer or supervisor. May assist higher level programmer by independently performing
less difficult tasks assigned, and performing more difficult tasks under fairly close direction.
May guide or instruct lower level programmers.
