1 Standard hours reflect the workweek for which employees receive
their regular straight-time salaries (exclusive of pay for overtime at
regular and/or premium rates), and the earnings correspond to these
weekly hours,
2 The mean is computed for each job by totaling the earnings of all
workers and dividing by the number of workers. The median designates
position— half of the workers receive the same or more and half receive
the same or less than the rate shown. The middle range is defined by two
rates of pay: a fourth of the workers earn the same or less than the lower
of these rates and a fourth earn the same or more than the higher rate.




3 Earnings data relate only to workers whose sex identification was
provided by the establishment.
4 Excludes premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends,
holidays, and late shifts.
5 Estimates for periods ending prior to 1976 relate to men o.nly for
skilled maintenance and unskilled plant workers. All other estimates relate
to men and women.

Appendix A.
Scope and Method
of Survey
In each of the 72 1 areas currently surveyed, the Bureau obtains
wages and related benefits data from representative establishments within
six broad industry divisions: Manufacturing; transportation, communication,
and other public utilities; wholesale trade; retail trade; finance, insurance,
and real estate; and services. Government operations and the construction
and extractive industries are excluded. Establishments having fewer than a
prescribed number of workers are also excluded because of insufficient
employment in the occupations studied. Appendix table 1 shows the number
of establishments and workers estimated to be within the scope of this survey,
as well as the number actually studied.
Bureau field representatives obtain data by personal visits at 3 -year
intervals. In each of the two intervening years, information on employment
and occupational earnings only is collected by a combination of personal visit,
mail questionnaire, and telephone interview from establishments participating
in the previous survey.
A sample of the establishments in the scope of the survey is selected
for study prior to each personal visit survey. This sample, less estab­
lishments which go out of business or are no longer within the industrial
scope of the survey, is retained for the following two annual surveys. In
most cases, establishments new to the area are not considered in the scope
of the survey until the selection of a sample for a personad visit survey.
The sampling procedures involve detailed stratification of adl estab­
lishments within the scope of an individuad area survey by industry and
number of employees. From this stratified universe a probability sample
is selected, with each establishment having a predetermined chance of se­
lection. To obtain optimum accuracy at minimum cost, a greater proportion
of large than smadl establishments is selected. When data are combined,
each establishment is weighted according to its probability of selection so
that unbiased estimates are generated. For example, if one out of four
establishments is selected, it is given a weight of 4 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 from 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.
O c c u p a tio n s and e a r n in g s

Occupations selected for study are common to a variety of manufac­
turing and nonmanufacturing industries, and are of the following types: (1)
Office clerical; (2) professional and technical; (3) maintenance, toolroom,
* Included in the 72 areas are 2 studies conducted by the Bureau under contract*
These areas are
Akron, Ohio and Poughkeepsie-Kingston-Newburgh, N .Y .
In addition, the Bureau conducts more limited area
studies in approximately 100 areas at the request of the Employment Standards Administration of the U. S.


Department of Labor.


and powerplant; and (4) material movement and custodial. 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 sill industries combined. Earnings data for some of the
occupations listed and described, or for- some industry divisions within the
scope of the survey, are not presented in the A -series tables because
either (1) employment in the occupation is too small to provide enough data
to merit presentation, or (2) there is possibility of disclosure of individual
establishment data. Separate men's and women's earnings data are not
presented when the number of workers not identified by sex is 20 percent
or more of the men or women identified in an occupation. Earnings data
not shown separately for industry divisions are included in data for all
industries combined. Likewise, for occupations with more than one level,
data are included in the overall classification when a subclassification is
not shown or information to subclassify is not available.
Occupational employment and earnings data are shown for full-time
workers, 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-living
allowances and incentive bonuses are included. Weekly hours for office
clerical 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. Vertical lines within the distribution of
workers on some A-tables indicate a change in the size of the class intervals.
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. For 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 occu­
pational average even though most establishments in an area increase wages
during the year. Changes in earnings of occupational groups, shown in table
A - 7, are better indicators of wage trends than are earnings changes for
individual jobs within the groups.
Average earnings reflect composite, 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 pro­
gression within established rate ranges (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 more generalized than those used in individual establishments
and allow for minor differences among establishments in specific duties
performed.

Percent changes for individual areas in the program are computed
as follows:

Occupational employment estimates represent the total in all estab­
lishments within the scope of the study and not the number actually surveyed.
Because occupational structures among establishments 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.

2. Each occupation is assigned a weight based on its pro­
portionate employment in the occupational group in the
base year.

1. Average earnings are computed for each occupation for
the 2 years being compared.
The averages are derived
from earnings in those establishments which are in
the survey both years; it is assumed that employment
remains unchanged.

3. These weights are used to compute group averages.
Each occupation's average earnings (computed in step 1)
is multiplied by its weight. The products are totaled to
obtain a group average.

Wage trends for selected occupational groups
The percent increases presented in table A-7 are based on changes
in average hourly earnings of men and women in establishments reporting the
trend jobs in both the current and previous year (matched establishments).
The data are adjusted to remove the effects on average earnings of employ­
ment shifts among establishments and 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 may enter at the bottom of the range,
depressing the average without a change in wage rates.
The percent changes relate to wage changes between the indicated
dates. When the time span between surveys is other than 12 months, annual
rates are also shown. (It is assumed that wages increase at a constant rate
between surveys.)

4. The ratio of group averages for 2 consecutive years is
computed by dividing the average for the current year by
the average for the earlier year. The result— expressed
as a percent— less 100 is the percent change.
For a more 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.
Average pay relationships within establishments
Relative measures of occupational pay are presented in table A-8
for white-collar occupations and in table A -9 for blue-collar occupations.
These relative values reflect differences in pay between occupations within
individual establishments. Relative pay values are computed by dividing an
establishment's average earnings for an occupation being compared by the
average for another occupation (designated as 100) and multiplying the quotient
by 100. For example, if janitors in a firm average $4 an hour and forklift
operators $5, forklift operators have a relative pay value of 125 compared
with janitors. ($5 -5 $4 = 1.25, x 100 = 125.) In combining the relatives of
the individual establishments to arrive at an overall average, each establish­
ment is considered to have as many relatives as it has weighted workers
•in the two jobs being compared.
Pay relationships based on overall averages may differ considerably
because of the varying contribution of high- and low-wage establishments to
the averages. For example, the overall average hourly earnings for forklift
operators may be 50 percent more than the average for janitors because the
average for forklift operators may be strongly influenced by earnings in
high-wage establishments while the average for janitors may be strongly
influenced by earnings in low-wage establishments. In such a case, the
intra-establishment relationship will indicate a much smaller difference
in earnings.

Tabulations on selected establishment practices and supplementary
wage provisions (B-series tables) are not presented in this bulletin. Informa­
tion for these tabulations is collected at 3-year intervals. These tabulations
on minimum entrance salaries for inexperienced office workers; shift differ­
entials; 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.
