Preface
This bulletin provides results of a September 1979 survey of
occupational earnings and supplementary wage benefits in the Kansas City,
Missouri—
Kansas, Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area.
The survey was
made as part of the Bureau of Labor Statistics' annual area wage survey
program.
It was conducted by the Bureau' s regional office in Kansas City,
M o., under the general direction of Edward Chaiken, Assistant Regional
Com m issioner 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.
Material in this publication is in the public domain and may be
reproduced without perm ission of the Federal Government.
Please credit
the Bureau of Labor Statistics and cite the name and number of this
publication.

Note:
Information in this bulletin relates to selected industries in the
private sector. Major exclusions from the scope of the survey are govern­
ment operations, mining, construction, and certain services-related indus­
tries. (See appendix A).
In this area, a test survey was conducted to
include these industries (except Federal government operations). Seven
additional occupational classifications— accountants, buyers, chemists, engi­
neers, engineering technicians, personnel clerks, and purchasing clerks—
were also studied. Results of the survey are available, without cost, from
the Bureau's regional offices.
Reports on occupational earnings and supplementary wage provisions
in the Kansas City area are available for the computer and data processing
services (March 1978), hospitals (May 1978), hotels and motels (May 1978),
nursing and personal care facilities (June 1978), and auto dealer repair
shops (June 1978) industries.
Listings of union wage rates are available
for building trades, printing trades, local-transit operating employees,
local truckdrivers and helpers, and grocery store employees. A report
on occupational wages and supplementary benefits for municipal government
workers in the city of Kansas City is also available.
Free copies of these
are available from the Bureau' s regional offices. (See back cover for
addresses.)

Introduction

This area is 1 of 72 in which the U.S. Department of Labor' s
Bureau of Labor Statistics conducts surveys of occupational earnings and
related benefits. (See list of areas on inside back cover.) In each area,
earnings data for selected occupations (A -s e r ie s tables) are collected
annually.
Information on establishment practices and supplementary wage
benefits (B -s e r ie s tables) is obtained every third year.
Each year after all individual area wage surveys have been com ­
pleted, two summ ary bulletins are issued. The first brings together data
for each metropolitan area surveyed; the second presents national and r e ­
gional estim ates, projected from individual metropolitan area data, for all
Standard Metropolitan Statistical A reas in the United States, excluding Alaska
and Hawaii.
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 develops information that may be used for many purposes,
including wage and salary administration, collective bargaining, and a s ­
sistance 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.

Where possible, data are presented for all industries and for manufacturing
and nonmanufacturing separately.
Data are not presented for skilled m ain­
tenance workers in nonmanufacturing because the number of workers em ­
ployed in this occupational group in nonmanufacturing is too sm all to warrant
separate presentation. This table provides a m easure of wage trends after
elimination of changes in average earnings caused by employment shifts
among establishments as well as turnover of establishments included in
survey samples. For further details, see appendix A.
Tables A -8 and A -9 provide for the first time m easures of average
pay relationships within establishments.
These m easures may differ consid­
erably from the pay relationships of overall averages published in tables
A - l through A -6 . See appendix A for details.
B -se r ie s tables
The B -se r ie s tables present information on minimum entrance
salaries for inexperienced typists and clerks; late-sh ift pay provisions and
practices for production and related workers in manufacturing; and data
separately for production and related workers and office workers on sched­
uled weekly hours and days of fir st-sh ift workers; paid holidays; paid vaca­
tions; health, insurance, and pension plans; and m ore detailed information
on life insurance plans.

A -s e r ie s tables
Appendixes
Tables A - l through A -6 provide estimates of straight-tim e weekly
or hourly earnings for workers in occupations common to a variety of
manufacturing and nonmanufacturing industries.
The occupations are defined
in appendix B.
For the 31 largest survey areas, tables A -1 0 through A -1 5
provide sim ilar data for establishments employing 500 workers or m ore.
Table A -7 provides percent changes in average hourly earnings of
office clerica l w orkers, electronic data processing w orkers, industrial
nurses, skilled maintenance trades w orkers, and unskilled plant workers.




Appendix A describes the methods and concepts used in the area
wage survey program. It provides information on the scope of the area
survey, the area's industrial composition in manufacturing, and lab ormanagement agreement coverage.
Appendix B provides job descriptions used by Bureau field rep re­
sentatives to classify workers by occupation.

Footnotes

Some of these standard footnotes may not apply to this bulletin.

1 Standard hours reflect the workweek for which employees receive
their regular straight-tim e salaries (exclusive of pay for overtime at reg ­
ular 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 desig­
nates position— half of the workers receive the same or m ore and half r e ­
ceive 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 Estim ates for periods ending prior to 1976 relate to men only for
skilled maintenance and unskilled plant workers. All other estimates r e ­
late to men and women.
6 Data do not meet publication criteria or data not available.
7 Form ally established minimum regular straight-tim e hiring sa l­
aries that are paid for standard workweeks.
Data are presented for all
standard workweeks combined, and for the most common standard work9
J
weeks reported.
8 Excludes workers in subclerical jobs such as m essenger.
9 Includes all production and related workers in establishments
currently operating late shifts, and establishments whose form al provisions
cover late shifts, even though the establishments were not currently
operating late shifts.
10 Less than 0.05 percent.
1 L ess than 0.5 percent.
1
12 A ll combinations of full and half days that add to the same amount;
for example, the proportion of workers receiving a total of 10 days
includes those with 10 full days and no half days, 9 full days and 2
half days, 8 full days and 4 half days, and so on. Proportions then
were cumulated.




1 Includes payments other than "length of t i m e ," such as percentage
3
of annual earnings or flat-sum payments, converted to an equivalent time
basis; for example, 2 percent of annual earnings was considered as 1 week's
pay. Periods of service are chosen arbitrarily and do not necessarily reflect
individual provisions for progression; for exam ple, changes in proportions
at 10 years include changes between 5 and 10 years. Estim ates are cumula­
tive. Thus, the proportion eligible for at least 3 weeks' pay after 10 years
includes those eligible for at least 3 weeks' pay after fewer years of service.
1 Estimates listed after type of benefit are for all plans for which
4
at least a part of the cost is borne by the em ployer. "Noncontributory
plans" include only those financed entirely by the employer. Excluded are
legally required plains, such as workers' disability compensation, social s e ­
curity, and railroad retirement.
1 Unduplicated total of workers receiving sick leave or sickness and
5
accident insurance shown separately below. Sick leave plans are limited to
those which definitely establish at least the minimum number of days' pay
that each employee can expect. Informal sick leave allowances determined
on an individual basis are excluded.
1 Estimates under "A ll plams" relate to all plams for which at least
6
a part of the cost is borne by the em ployer. Estim ates under "Noncontrib­
utory plans" include only those financed entirely by the employer.
37 For "A ll in d u stries," all full-tim e production and related workers
or office workers equal 100 percent. For "M anu facturing," all full-tim e
production and related workers or office workers in manufacturing equal 100
percent.
18 The mean amount is computed by multiplying the number of
workers provided insurance by the amount of insurance provided, totaling
the products, and dividing the sum by the number of workers. The median
indicates that half of the workers are provided an amount equal to or sm aller
and half an amount equal to or larger than the amount shown. Middle
range (50 percent)— a fourth of the workers are provided an amount equ?d. to
or less them the smaller amount and a fourth are provided an amount equal
to or more them the larger amount. Middle range (80 percent)— 10 percent of
the workers are provided an amount equal to or less than the sm aller
amount and 10 percent are provided an amount equal to or more than the
larger amount.
1 A factor of annual earnings is the number by which annual earnings
9
are multiplied to determine the amount of insurance provided. For example,
a factor of 2 indicates that for annual earnings of $ 1 0 ,0 0 0 the amount of
insurance provided is $ 2 0 ,0 0 0 .

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 se rv ic e s. 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-y ear
intervals. In each of the two intervening years, information on employment
and occupational earnings only is collected by a combination of personal
v isit, m ail 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 sam ple, less
establishm ents 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
m ost ca se s, establishm ents new to the area are not considered in the scope
of the survey until the selection of a sample for a personal visit survey.
The sampling procedures involve detailed stratification of all
establishm ents within the scope of an individual area survey by industry
and number of em ployees.
From 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 sm all establishments is selected. When data are
combined, each establishment is weighted according to its probability of
selection so that unbiased estim ates are generated.
For example, if one
out of four establishm ents is selected, it is given a weight of 4 to represent
itse lf plus three others.
An alternate of the same original probability is
chosen in the same in du stry-size classification if data are not available
from the original sample m em ber. If no suitable substitute is available,
additional weight is assigned to a sample member that is sim ilar to the
m issin g unit.

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.




Occupations and earnings
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,
and powerplant; and (4) m aterial 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 all 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 -se r ie s tables because either (1) employ­
ment in the occupation is too small to provide enough data to merit presen­
tation, 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 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 sub classify 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-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-tim e 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 tim e. 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
occupational 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 estim ates. 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 (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.
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.

Skilled maintenance—
Continued

Unskilled plant

Mechanics (motor vehicle)
Pipefitters
Tool and die makers

Janitors, porters, and
cleaners
Material handling laborers

Percent changes for individual areas in the program are computed
as follows:
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.
2.

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

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.

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.

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 effect on average earnings of employ­
ment shifts among establishments and turnover of establishments included
in survey sam ples.
The percent increases, however, are still affected by
factors other than wage increases. H irings, 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 tim e 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.)
Occupations used to compute wage trends are:

Stenographers, general
Typists, classes A and B
File clerk s, cla sses A ,

Mechanics (machinery)

For a more detailed description of the method used to compute
these wage trends see "Improving Area Wage Survey In d e x e s," Monthly
Labor Review, January 1973, pp. 5 2 -5 7 .
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 blu e-collar occupations.
These relative values reflect differences in pay between occupations withirr
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 -j- $ 4 = 1.25 x 100 = 125.)
In combining the
relatives of the individual establishments to arrive at an overall average,
each establishment 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 sm aller difference in
earnings.
Establishment practices and supplementary wage provisions

The incidence of selected establishment practices and supplementary
wage provisions is studied for full-tim e production and related workers and
office workers. Production and related workers (referred to hereafter as

v ic e s, product development, auxiliary production for plant's own use
(e .g ., powerplant), and recordkeeping and other services closely a s s o c i­
ated with the above production operations. (Cafeteria and route workers
are excluded in manufacturing industries but included in nonmanufacturing
industries.) In finance and insurance, no workers are considered to be
production w orkers. Office workers include working supervisors and all nonsupervisory workers (including lead workers and trainees) performing
clerica l or related office functions in such departments as accounting,
advertising, purchasing, collection, credit, finance, legal, payroll, personnel,
sa le s, industrial relations, public relations, executive, or transportation.
.Administrative, executive, professional, and part-time employees as well
as construction workers utilized as separate work forces are excluded from
both the production and office worker categories.

written form or established by custom). Holidays
in a particular year they fall on a nonworkday
granted another day off. Paid personal holiday
the automobile and related industries, are included

Minimum entrance salaries (table B - l ) . Minimum entrance salaries
for office workers relate only to the establishments visited.
Because of the
optimum sampling techniques used and the probability that large establish­
ments are m ore likely than sm all establishments to have form al entrance
rates above the subclerical lev el, the table is more representative of policies
in medium and large establishments. (The " X 's " shown under standard
weekly hours indicate that no meaningful totals are applicable.)

For tabulating vacation pay granted, all provisions are expressed
on a time basis. Vacation pay calculated on other than a time basis is
converted to its equivalent time period. Two percent of annual earnings,
for example, is tabulated as 1 week's vacation pay.

Shift differentials— manufacturing (table B -2 ). Data were collected
on policies of manufacturing establishments regarding pay differentials for
production workers on late shifts. Establishments considered as having
policies are those which (1) have provisions in writing covering the operation
of late sh ifts, or (2) have operated late shifts at any time during the 12
months preceding a survey.
When establishments have several differentials
which vary by job, the differential applying to the majority of the production
workers is recorded.
When establishments have differentials which apply
only to certain hours of work, the differential applying to the m ajority of
the shift hours is recorded.
For purposes of this study, a late shift is either a second (evening)
shift which ends at or near midnight or a third (night) shift which starts at
or near midnight.
Differentials for second and third shifts are summarized separately
for (1) establishment policies (an establishment's differentials are weighted
by all production workers in the establishment at the time of the survey)
and (2) effective practices (an establishment's differentials are weighted by
production workers employed on the specified shift at the time of the survey).
Scheduled weekly hours; paid holidays; paid vacations; and health,
insurance] and pension plans.
Provisions which apply to a majority of the
production or office workers in an establishment are considered to apply to
all production or office workers in the establishment; a practice or provision
is considered nonexistent when it applies to less than a majority.
Holidays;
vacations; and health, insurance, and pension plans are considered applicable
to employees currently eligible for the benefits as well as to employees who
w ill eventually becom e eligible.
Scheduled weekly hours and days (table B -3 ). Scheduled weekly
hours and days refer to the number of hours and days per week which fu ll­
tim e fir st (day) shift workers are expected to work, whether paid for at
straight-tim e or overtim e rates.
Paid holidays (table B -4 ).

Holidays

are included if workers who

required to work are paid for the tim e off and those required to
work receive premium pay or compensatory time off. They are included
only if they are granted annually on a formal basis (provided for in

and employees are not
plans, typically found in
as paid holidays.

Data are tabulated to show the percent of workers who (1) are
granted specific numbers of whole and half holidays and (2) are granted
specified amounts of total holiday time (whole and half holidays are
aggregated).
Paid vacations (table B -5 ) . Establishments report their method of
calculating vacation pay (time b a sis, percent of annual earnings, flat-sum
payment, etc.) and the amount of vacation pay granted. Only basic formal
plans are reported. Vacation bonuses, vacation-savings plans, and "extended"
or "sabbatical" benefits beyond basic plans are excluded.

A lso, provisions after each specified length of service are related
to all production or office workers in an establishment regardless of length of
service. Vacation plans commonly provide for a larger amount of vacation
pay as service lengthens. Counts of production or office workers by length
of service were not obtained. The tabulations of vacation pay granted
present, therefore, statistical m easures of these provisions rather than
proportions of workers actually receiving specific benefits.
Health, insurance, and pension plans (tables B -6 and B -7 ). Health,
insurance, and pension plans include plans for which the employer pays
either all or part of the cost. The cost may be (1) underwritten by a
com m ercial insurance company or nonprofit organization, (2) covered by a
union fund to which the employer has contributed, or (3) borne directly by
the employer out of operating funds or a fund set aside to cover the cost.
A plan is included even though a majority of the employees in an establish­
ment do not choose to participate in it because they are required to bear
part of its cost (provided the choice to participate is available or will
eventually become available to a m ajority). Legally required plans such as
social security, railroad retirem ent, w orkers' disability compensation, and
temporary disability insurance 3 are excluded.

3
Temporary disability insurance which provides benefits to covered workers disabled by injury or illness
which is not work-connected is mandatory under State laws in California, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode
Island. Establishment plans which meet only the legal requirements are excluded from these data, but those
under which (1) employers contribute more than is legally required or (2) benefits exceed those specified in the
State law are included. In Rhode Island, benefits are paid out of a State fund to which only employees
contribute. In each of the other three States, benefits are paid either from a State fund or through a private plan.
State fund financing; In California, only employees contribute to the State fund; in New Jersey,
employees and employers contribute; in New York, employees contribute up to a specified maximum
and employers pay the difference between the employees' share and the total contribution required.
Private plan financing: In California and New Jersey, employees cannot be required to contribute
more than they would if they were covered by the State fund; in New York, employees can agree
to contribute more if the State rules that the additional contribution is commensurate with the
benefit provided.
Federal legislation ( Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act) provides temporary disability insurance benefits
to railroad worker* for illness or injury, whether work-connected or not. The legislation requires that employers
bear ih o e n tir e c o s t o f th e In s u ra n c e .

Life insurance includes formal plans providing indemnity (usually
through an insurance policy) in case of death of the covered worker.
Information is also provided in table B -7 on types of life insurance plans
and the amount of coverage ip all industries combined and in manufacturing.
Accidental death and dismemberment insurance is limited to plans
which provide benefit payments in case of death or loss of limb or sight as a
direct result of an accident.
Sickness and accident insurance includes only those plans which
provide that predetermined cash payments be made directly to employees
who lose time from work because of illness or injury, e .g ., $ 50 a week
for up to 26 weeks of disability.
Sick leave plans are limited to formal plan s4 which provide for
continuing an em ployee's pay during absence from work because of illn ess.
Data collected distinguish between (1) plans which provide full pay with no
waiting period, and (2) plans which either provide partial pay or require a
waiting period.
Long-term disability insurance plans provide payments to totally
disabled employees upon the expiration of their paid sick leave and/or sick­
ness and accident insurance, or after a predetermined period of disability
(typically 6 months). Payments are made until the end of the disability, a
maximum age, or eligibility for retirement benefits. Full or partial pay­
ments are almost always reduced by social security, w orkers' disability
compensation, and private pension benefits payable to the disabled employee.
Hospitalization, surgical, and medical insurance plans reported
in these surveys provide full or partial payment for basic services rendered.
Hospitalization insurance covers hospital room and board and may cover
other hospital expenses. Surgical insurance covers surgeons' fees. Medical
insurance covers doctors* fees for home, office, or hospital calls. Plans
restricted to post-operative medical care or a doctor's care for minor
ailments at a w orker's place of employment are not considered to be
medical insurance.
Major medical insurance coverage applies to services which go
beyond the basic services covered under hospitalization, surgical, and
medical insurance. M ajor m edical insurance typically (1) requires that a
"deductible" (e .g ., $ 5 0 ) be met before benefits begin, (2) has a coinsurance
feature that requires the insured to pay a portion (e .g ., 20 percent) of
certain expenses, and (3) has a specified dollar maximum of benefits (e .g .,
$ 10, 000 a year).
Dental insurance plans provide normal dental service benefits,
usually for fillin gs, extractions, and X -r a y s . Plans which provide benefits
only for oral surgery or repairing accident damage are not reported.
Retirement pension plans provide for regular payments to the
retiree for life. Included are deferred profit-sharing plans which provide
the option of purchasing a lifetime annuity.

Labor-management agreement coverage
The following tabulation shows the percent of fu ll-tim e production
and office workers employed in establishments in the Kansas City area in
which a union contract or contracts covered a m ajority of the workers in
the respective categories, September 1979:

An establishment is considered to have a contract covering all
production or office workers if a majority of such workers is covered by
a labor-management agreement. Therefore, all other production or office
workers are employed in establishments that either do not have labormanagement contracts in effect, or have contracts that apply to fewer than
half of their production or office workers.
Estim ates are not necessarily
representative of the extent to which all workers in the area may be covered
by the provisions of labor-management agreements, because sm all estab­
lishments are excluded and the industrial scope of the survey is limited.

Industrial composition in manufacturing
One-third of the workers within the scope of the survey in the
Kansas City area were employed in manufacturing firm s.
The following
presents the major industries as a percent of all manufacturing:

Appendix B.
Occupational
Descriptions
The prim ary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the
Bureau's wage surveys is to a ssist its field representatives 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 a r e a
to area. This permits grouping
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 sig­
nificantly from those in use in individual establishments or those p r e pared for other purposes. In applying these job descriptions, the
Bureau's field representatives are instructed to exclude working super­
v isors; apprentices; and part-tim e, tem porary, and probationary workers.
Handicapped workers whose earnings are reduced because of their
handicap are also excluded. Learners, beginners, and trainees, unless
specifically included in the job description, are excluded.

Office
SECRETARY
Assigned as a personal secretary, normally to one individual.
Maintains a close and highly responsive relationship to the day-to-day activ­
ities of the supervisor. Works fairly independently receiving a minimum of
detailed supervision and guidance. P erform s varied clerical and secretarial
duties requiring a knowledge of office routine and understanding of the
organization, program s, and procedures related to the work of the supervisor.

d.

Exclusions. Not all positions that are titled "s e c r e ta r y " possess the
above characteristics.
Examples of positions which are excluded from the
definition are as follows:

N O TE : The term "corporate officer" used in the above LS def­
inition refers to those officials who have a significant corporatewide policymaking role with regard to major company activities. The title "v ic e
presiden t," though normally indicative of this role, does not in all cases
identify such positions.
Vice presidents whose primary responsibility is to
act personally on individual cases or transactions (e .g ., approve or deny
individual loan or credit actions; administer individual trust accounts; di­
rectly supervise a clerical staff) are not considered to be "corporate
o fficers" for purposes of applying the definition.

skills required for systems analysis work. For exam ple, may assist a higher
level system s analyst by preparing the detailed specifications required by
program m ers from information developed by the higher level analyst.

Analyzes business problems to formulate procedures for solving
them by use of electronic data processing equipment. Develops a complete
description of all specifications needed to enable program m ers to prepare
required digital computer program s.
Work involves most of the following:
Analyzes subject-m atter operations to be automated and identifies conditions
and criteria required to achieve satisfactory results; specifies number and
types of records, file s, and documents to be used; outlines actions to be
performed by personnel and computers in sufficient detail for presentation
to management and for programming (typically this involves preparation of
work and data flow charts); coordinates the development of test problems and
participates in trial runs of new and revised system s; and recommends
equipment changes to obtain more effective overall operations.
(NOTE:
Workers performing both system s analysis and programming should be
classified as systems analysts if this is the skill used to determine their pay.)

to efficiently utilize the computer system in achieving desired end products.

- Starts and operates computer.
- Responds to operating and computer output instructions.
- Reviews error m essages and makes corrections during operation
or refers problems.
- Maintains operating record.

At this level, programming is difficult because computer equip­
ment must be organized to produce several interrelated but diverse prod­
ucts from numerous and diverse data elements. A wide variety and ex­
tensive number of internal processing actions must occur. This requires
such actions as development of common operations which can be re ­
used, 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 .

May test-run new or modified program s. May a ssist in modifying
system s or program s. The scope of this definition includes trainees working
to become fully qualified computer operators, fully qualified computer
operators, and lead operators providing technical assistance to lower level
operators. It excludes workers who monitor and operate remote terminals.

mation or to conserve computer time even though the procedures
applied m aterially alter the computer unit's production plans.

Class B . Works independently or under only general direction on
relatively simple p rogram s, or on simple segments of complex program s.
P rogram s (or segments) usually process information to produce data in two
or three varied sequences or form ats. 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 recordkeeping operations.

C O M P U T E R D ATA LIBRARIAN

Class B . In addition to established production runs, work assign­
ments include runs involving new program s, applications, and procedures
(i.e ., situations which require the operator to adapt to a variety of problems).
At this level, the operator has the training and experience to work fairly
independently in carrying out most assignments. Assignments may require
the operator to select from a variety of standard setup and operating
procedures. In responding to computer output instructions or error con­
ditions, applies standard operating or corrective procedures, but may
deviate from standard procedures when standard procedures fail if deviation
does not materially alter the computer unit's production plans. Refers the
problem or aborts the program when procedures applied do not provide a
solution. May guide lower level operators.

Maintains library of media (tapes, disks, cards, cassettes) used
for automatic data processing applications.
The following or sim ilar duties
characterize the work of a computer data librarian: Classifying, cataloging,
and storing media in accordance with a standardized system ; upon proper
requests, releasing media for processing; maintaining records of releases
and returns; inspecting returned media for damage or excessive wear to
determine whether or not they need replacing. May perform minor repairs
to damaged tapes.

Class C . Work assignments are limited to established production
runs (i.e ., programs which present few operating problems). Assignments
may consist prim arily of on-the-job training (sometimes augmented by
classroom instruction). When learning to run program s, the supervisor or a
higher level operator provides detailed written or oral guidance to the
operator before and during the run. After the operator has gained experience
with a program , however, the operator works fairly independently in
applying standard operating or corrective . procedures in responding to
computer output instructions or error conditions, but refers problems to a
higher level operator or the supervisor when standard procedures fail.

Operates peripheral equipment w h i c h directly supports digital
computer operations. Such equipment is uniquely and specifically designed
for computer applications, but need not be physically or electronically
connected to a computer. P rin ters, plotters, card read/punches, tape
readers, tape units or drives, disk units or drives, and data display units
are examples of such equipment.
The following duties characterize the work of a peripheral equipment
operator:
- Loading printers and plotters with correct paper; adjusting
controls for fo rm s, thickness, tension, printing density, and
location; and unloading hard copy.
- Labelling tape reels, disks, or card decks.
- Checking labels and mounting and dismounting
reels or disks on specified units or drives.
