1 The Chicago Standard Metropolitan Statistical A r e a , as defined by the Office
of Management and Budget through F ebru ary 1974, consists of Cook, D uPage, Kane,
Lake, M cHenry, and W ill Counties. The "w ork ers within scope of study" estimates
shown in this table provide a reasonably accurate description of the size and com ­
position of the labor force included in the survey.
Estim ates are not intended,
however, for com parison with other employment indexes to m easure employment
trends or levels since (1) planning of wage surveys req uires 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 1972 edition of the Standard Industrial Classification Manual was used
in classifying establishments by industry division. How ever, a ll government o p e ra ­
tions are excluded from the scope of the survey.
3 Includes all establishments with total employment at or above the minimum
limitation. A ll outlets (within the area) of companies in industries such as trade,




36

finance, auto repair service, and motion picture theaters are considered as one
establishment.
4 Includes a ll w orkers in all establishments with total employment (within
the area) at or above the minimum limitation.
5 Abbreviated to "public utilities" in the A - s e r i e s tables.
Taxicabs and
services incidental to water transportation are excluded.
The lo ca l-tra n sit system
for the city of Chicago 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 motels; laundries and other personal se rv ic e s; business services;
automobile rep a ir, rental, and parking; motion pictures; nonprofit m em bership
organizations (excluding religious and charitable organizations); and engineering and
architectural services.
