■  L 3L.'4'-XH°n  Occupational Compensation Survey  National Summary, 1996  U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics Bulletin 2497   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  fv'.f.Xy.;  ^viy.'d  ,IiI  ,,|  Preface  This bulletin presents pay data from the 1996 Occupational Compensation Surveys (OCS) conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Bureau publishes bulletins for most individual OCS localities; in addition to summarizing these locality survey results, this bulletin presents national and regional estimates of occupational pay for 1996. The Occupational Compensation Survey describes the level and distribution of occupational pay in a variety of the Nation’s labor markets, using a consistent survey approach. It also provides information on the incidence of employee benefits among and within localities. Although this publication does not include benefits data, this information is published in locality bulletins (listed in appendix table 4, pages A-l 1 through A-12) when the locality is surveyed. OCS data, which assist in the implementation of the Federal Employees Pay Comparability Act of 1990 and the administration of the Service Contract Act of 1965, are used in the public and private sectors in, for example, wage and salary administration, collective bargaining, and facility site determination. “Part 1 Pay in the United States and Regions, June 1996,” presents 1996 national and regional estimates of pay based on April 1995-November 1996 surveys. “Part II Pay Comparisons, 1996,” provides relative pay levels which compare broad occupational groups in localities primarily surveyed in 19961 to the national estimates. “Part III Locality Pay, 1996,” presents the occupational pay averages for localities surveyed by the Bureau in 1996.  1  Part II also contains data for localities surveyed in either late 1995 or early 1997 to provide a broader  examination of pay differences among areas.

Gayle Griffith managed the project. Denis Gusty, Sidney Samuel, Matt Napolitano, Jeff Wcstphal, and Gayle Griffith of the Office of Compensation and Working Conditions prepared the tables and text. Richard S. Schildt, and Jon Virgin of the Directorate of Survey Processing coordinated the data file formation and tabulations. Joan Coleman, Christina L. Harpenau, Philip N. Selby, and Glenn Springer of the Statistical Methods Group provided the statistical analysis. Field economists from the Bureau's eight regional offices, under the direction of the Assistant Regional Commissioners for Operations, collected the survey data. Without the cooperation of the many private firms and government jurisdictions that provided pay data, this report would not have been possible. The Bureau thanks all survey respondents for their cooperation. For further information on this program, please call (202) 606­ 6220.

B-1  Introduction This bulletin provides 1996 estimates of occupational pay for full-time workers in the Nation (excluding Alaska and Hawaii in part I) and its census regions. Pay data are derived from 159 locality pay surveys, with reference dates ranging from April 1995 to November 1996; some areas with an earlier reference month were aged using the Employment Cost Index. (See appendix A for more details.) BLS surveys occupational pay in many different localities each year. The reports generated by these surveys may differ in occupational content and reference month. For example, some reports may contain wage and salary data for several dozen occupations, others may cover fewer or more occupations, making it difficult to make comparisons among localities.  Part I. Pay in the United States and Regions, June 1996 Tables A-l through E-5 provide pay data for selected white- and blue-collar occupations common to a variety of industries. The A-series tables provide U. S. estimates of straight-time weekly or hourly pay by occupation, along with pay distributions for 128 publishable occupational levels. The B-series tables compare national estimates of average straight-time pay for establishments in four size classifications—under 500 employees, 500-999 employees, 1,000-2,499 employees, and 2,500 employees or more. The C-series tables show regional differences in average pay, for all establishments, and for those located in metropolitan areas, along with national estimates for nonmetropolitan areas. The D-series tables provide occupational pay averages for a variety of goods-producing industries, while the E-series tables present averages for several service-producing industries. ’ Part I does not include national pay data for Order Fillers and Warehouse Specialists. These jobs were not surveyed in all localities that comprise the national data.  Part II. Pay Comparisons, 1996 To facilitate pay comparisons, the Bureau developed measures of relative pay for broad occupational groups. These measures, or pay relatives, express pay levels as a percent of the national pay level. In other words, an area pay relative is the result of dividing pay for an occupational group in a particular locality by the corresponding national pay level, and multiplying by 100. For example, a pay relative of 105 indicates that pay rates in the locality averaged 5 percent above national pay levels. Part II presents separate pay relatives for all industries, private industry, and State and local government for all areas covered by the survey, where available. Because industrial coverage varied among survey areas, some areas may not appear on each   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  table. Pay relatives are calculated for all areas surveyed in 1996 and some areas surveyed in either November 1995, December 1995, January 1997, or February 1997. Areas included from 1995 and 1997 were not surveyed in 1996. Pay relatives in the F-series tables show how locality pay levels compare to the national estimates (as summarized in tables A-l through A-5 of part I). Pay relatives in the G-series tables contrast national data for establishments with certain characteristics against national data for all establishments. All tables show relative pay levels for the following broad occupational groups: Professional, administrative, technical, clerical, maintenance, material movement; and janitors. In addition, the all industries and State and local government tables display pay relatives for the protective service occupational group.  Part III. Locality Pay, 1996 BLS published 83 Occupational Compensation Survey area bulletins and summaries with a 1996 reference date. In addition to pay averages (means), each area publication presented other pay data such as medians, interquartile ranges, and horizontal distributions of pay, by occupation. The tables in part III summarize previously published pay averages from all survey areas with a 1996 month of reference. The tables present straight-time average weekly pay by locality for professional and administrative occupations, technical and protective service jobs, and clerical occupations, and straight-time average hourly pay for maintenance and toolroom jobs, and material movement and custodial occupations. Straight-time weekly pay for white-collar workers relates to regular average (mean) straight-time salaries that are paid for standard work weeks. The H-series tables present all-industry occupational pay averages, by area. The I-series tables provide private industry pay data, and the J-series tables show State and local government averages.  Industrial coverage Throughout this bulletin, unless otherwise noted, private and all industries estimates represent all private industry with the exception of agriculture, forestry, and fishing, and private households. Because industrial coverage varied among survey areas, each table does not necessarily contain all areas. See appendix table 4 (pages A—11 through A-12), for details about industrial coverage. In addition, some of the locality surveys reported in parts II and III had less comprehensive  industrial coverage in the private sector. These surveys did not cover the following industry groups:  Industry group  Standard Industrial Classification Code(s)  Mining............................................................................. 101-149 Construction................................................................... 152-179 Taxi cabs.........................................................................412 Services incidental to water transportation.................. 449 Miscellaneous repair services.......................................762-769 Amusement and recreation services ............................. 791-799 Health services .............................................................. 801-809 Legal services................................................................811 Educational services...................................................... 821-829 Social services................................................................832-839 Museums, art galleries, and botanical and zoological gardens............................................. 841-842 Religious organizations ................................................ 866   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  Occupational coverage Beginning in January 1995, the job definitions for attorneys, engineers, and personnel assistants were revised for a number of surveys used in the National Summary. The job definitions were expanded so that attorneys now include prosecuting attorneys and public defenders, engineers include industrial engineers and quality control engineers, and personnel assistants are no longer limited to those working in employment. Thus, data for these occupations are not comparable to those in the 1994 National Summary. The bulletin does not present data for the nursing occupations (Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, and Nursing Assistants). These jobs were not surveyed in 1996.  Appendixes Appendix A describes the concepts, methods, and coverage used in the Occupational Compensation Survey Program. Appendix B includes the descriptions used by Bureau field economists to classify workers into survey occupations.  NOTE: This is the last National Summary publication under the Occupational Compensation Program. The next national wage survey will be produced with data from the National Compensation Survey (NCS). The NCS program supersedes the Occupational Compensation Survey.

Scope and Methodology  The Occupational Compensation Survey program The data in this report are based on Occupational Compensation Surveys (OCS) conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Surveys cover establishments employing 50 workers or more, but exclude private households, agriculture, the Federal Government, and the self-employed.1 The Bureau conducts these surveys throughout the year on a sample basis. Individual survey area bulletins and summaries (listed in appendix table 4) provide detailed survey information for each area, including industrial coverage and sample size. In addition to individual survey area bulletins, the Bureau uses locality data to estimate national and regional pay levels and distributions. These estimates, published in part I of this bulletin, provide the basis for computing the nationwide average used tor comparing locality pay levels for different occupational groups to an identical group of employees throughout the Nation. Part II of this bulletin presents these pay comparisons, or pay relatives, for each surveyed locality with a 1996 reference month as well as surveys with a reference month in November and December 1995 and January and February 1997. Published occupational pay averages from all 1996 OCS localities appear in part III.  Establishment samples To present compensation data on a locality basis, BLS statisticians draw establishment samples for each area surveyed. Sampling design involves: Organizing the sampling frame (the list of all area establishments) into strata based on industry and employment size; determining the size of the sample for each stratum, and selecting an establishment sample from each stratum.  1 For this survey, an establishment is an economic unit which produces goods or services, a central administrative office, or an auxiliary unit providing support services to a company. In manufacturing industries, the establishment is usually at a single physical location. In service-producing industries, all locations of an individual company in a metropolitan statistical area or nonmetropolitan county are usually considered an establishment. In government, an establishment is usually defined as all locations of a government entity.   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  The Bureau develops sampling frames from State unemployment insurance reports for the 48 contiguous States and the District of Columbia11. Establishments with 50 workers or more during the sampling frame's reference period are included in the survey sampling frame, even if they employ fewer than 50 workers at the time of the survey. Prior to survey collection, review of the sampling frame uncovers any necessary corrections, which typically involve adding missing establishments, removing out-of-business and out-of-scope units, and updating addresses, employment levels, industry classification, and other information. The expected number of employees to be found (based on previous occupational pay surveys) in professional, administrative, technical, protective service, and clerical occupations determines the establishment sample size in a stratum. In other words, the larger the number of employees expected to be found in designated occupations, the larger the establishment sample in that stratum. Upward adjustments to establishment sample size are necessary in strata expected to have relatively high sampling error for certain occupations, based on previous survey experiences. After sample size determination, the Bureau selects a probability sample, with each establishment having a predetermined chance of selection. To obtain optimum accuracy at minimum cost, the Bureau selects a greater proportion of large than small establishments. Combining the data from each establishment, weighted according to its probability of selection, results in the formation of unbiased estimates.  Survey occupations The survey’s occupations are common to a variety of public and private industries. In this bulletin, occupations are presented in five groups: • • •  Professional and administrative; Technical and protective service; Clerical;  2 Although survey data are presented separately, Alaska and Hawaii were not used for the national and regional estimates.  • Maintenance and toolroom; • Material movement and custodial. Occupational classification involves the use of a uniform set of job descriptions which were designed to take account of interestablishment variation in duties within the same job. Appendix B lists and describes the occupations selected for study, along with corresponding occupational codes and titles from the 1980 edition of the Standard Occupational Classification Manual (SOC), issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Office of Federal Statistical Policy and Standards.  sample establishments to account for the missing data. Weights for establishments which were out of business or outside the scope of the survey change to zero. Some sampled establishments have a policy of not disclosing salary data for certain employees. No adjustments were made to pay estimates to account for these missing data. The proportion of employees for whom pay data were not available was less than 2 percent. Individual survey bulletins with full industrial coverage (type 1 in appendix table 4) provide exact measurements of data not available on a locality basis.  Reliability of the estimates—sampling errors  Occupational pay Occupational Compensation Survey data correspond to full-time workers. The data exclude premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts. Also excluded are bonuses and lump-sum payments as well as profit­ sharing payments, attendance bonuses, Christmas or year-end bonuses, and other nonproduction bonuses. Pay increases—but not bonuses—under cost-of-living allowance clauses and incentive payments, however, are included in the pay data. Weekly hours for professional, administrative, technical, protective service, and clerical occupations refer to the standard workweek (rounded to the nearest tenth of an 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 dollar. A-series tables provide distributions  Two types of error, sampling and nonsampling affect the reliability of OCS estimates. Sampling errors occur because observations are from a sample, not the entire population. The particular sample used in this survey was one of a number of all possible samples of the same size that could have been selected using the same sample design. Estimates derived from different samples differ from each other. A measure of the variation among differing estimates is called the standard error or  of workers by earnings intervals. The mean (average) is computed for each job by totaling pay of all workers and dividing by the number of workers. The median designates position—one-half of the workers receive the same as or more and one-half receive the same as or less than the rate shown. The middle range is defined by two rates of pay; one-fourth of the workers eam the same as or less than the lower of these rates and one-fourth earn the same as or more than the higher rate. Medians and middle ranges are not provided when they do not meet reliability criteria. The average pay data presented in this report reflect nationwide, regional, and locality estimates. Industries and establishments differ in pay levels and job staffing, and thus contribute differently to the estimates for each job. Therefore, average pay does not necessarily reflect the pay differential among jobs within individual  selected individual survey area bulletins.  establishments. For some occupations, pay data may not be available at the industry or all-industry (overall) level because either (1) data do not provide statistically reliable results, or (2) data possibly disclose individual establishment data. All-industry estimates combine data from each industry, even though pay data may not appear separately  job definitions. The OCS Technical Reinterview Program process helps measure and control nonsampling errors occurring during data collection. This quality control procedure identifies the frequency, reasons for, and sources of incorrect decisions made by Bureau field economists in matching establishment occupations to OCS occupations. Reviewers examine data from a sample of survey participants and reinterview the original respondents to verify the accuracy of the job match decisions. Among areas surveyed, the process typically results in data changes for less than 10 percent  sampling error. This measure indicates the precision with which an estimate from a particular sample approximates the average result of all possible samples. The relative standard error is the standard error divided by the estimate. The smaller the relative error, the greater the reliability of the estimate. This information is available in  Reliability of the estimates—nonsampling errors Nonsampling errors may originate in collection, response, coverage, and estimation of data. Typical sources of nonsampling error include the inability to obtain information from some establishments; difficulties in interpreting and applying survey occupational definitions; failure of respondents to provide correct information; and inaccuracies in recording or coding the collected data. Although not specifically measured, the survey’s nonsampling errors are expected to be minimal due to high response rates; the extensive and continuous training of field economists; careful screening of data at several levels of review; periodic evaluations of job definition suitability; and thorough field testing of new or revised  for each industry division.

Pay in the United States and Regions  Survey coverage The June 1996 national and regional estimates in part 1 are based on occupational compensation surveys conducted in 1996 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.3 Surveys covered establishments employing 50 workers or more in goods producing industries (mining, construction, and manufacturing); service producing industries (transportation, communications, electric, gas, and sanitary services; wholesale trade; retail trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; and services industries); and State and local governments. Tables 1 and 2 in this appendix show the estimated number of establishments and workers covered by the survey’s scope along with the number actually included in the survey samples used to develop national estimates.  Area sample To permit presentation of national and regional data in part I, the Bureau developed a sample consisting of 89 metropolitan areas and 70 nonmetropolitan counties. These localities represent the Nation's 326 metropolitan statistical areas (as defined by the Office of Management and Budget) and the remaining portions of the 48 contiguous States. Table 3 of this appendix lists the locality surveys which were used to obtain national and regional estimates. The area sample involves the selection of areas from strata (groups) of similar areas. Criteria for area stratification (grouping) are nonagricultural employment level, geographic region, and type of industrial activity. For estimates of all areas combined, data from each area are weighted by the ratio of total nonagricultural employment in the stratum to that in the sample area. For example, if total nonagricultural employment in a stratum is 500,000 and the sample area has employment of 100,000, the sample area would be assigned a weight of 5.  Data collection and payroll reference Bureau field economists obtain survey data from a sample of establishments throughout the United States, primarily by personal visit. The combined average payroll reference month for all surveys (including those updated) which contributed to the 1996 national estimates is June.  Data limitations Survey occupations in part I are limited to employees meeting the specific criteria in each job definition. Estimates of occupational employment do not include employees whose salary data are not available or for whom there is no satisfactory basis for classification by work level. For these reasons, and because occupational structures among establishments differ, OCS estimates of occupational employment derived from an establishment sample serve only as a general guide to the size and composition of the labor force, rather than a precise measurement of employment.  Survey nonresponse Data were not available from 14.1 percent of the sample establishments (representing 5,999,046 employees covered by the survey). An additional 5.3 percent of the sample establishments (representing 1,612,401 employees) were either out of business or outside the scope of the survey.  Sampling error Estimates of relative errors for the 1996 national and regional estimates in part I of this bulletin vary among the occupational work levels depending on such factors as the frequency with which the job occurred, the dispersion of salaries for the job, and survey design. For the 128 publishable work levels, the distribution of one relative standard error is as follows:  Updating area data The 1996 estimates include updated survey data from earlier surveys. Faced with budget constraints, the Bureau used the Employment Cost Index to age selected locality data by 12 months. In addition to conserving collection resources the update has reduced respondent burden. There were 71 areas for which all-industry or private, non-health services industry, and local government data were updated.  3 The regions are defined as follows: Northeast-Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire  Percent ofpublished occupational work levels  Less than 1 percent 1 and under 3 percent 3 and under 5 percent 5 percent and over  63.8 9.4 1.4  25.5  Computation of the standard error aids in the determination of a "confidence interval" around a sample estimate.

Pay Comparisons Pay Relative Definition Description  A percentage measure relating average pay levels for an occupational group to  The Bureau designed pay relatives to facilitate pay comparisons for broad  national pay for the same levels  occupational groups. Pay relatives express pay levels as a percent of the national pay level. In other words, pay relatives are the result of dividing pay for an occupational group in a particular area or for a particular industry by the corresponding national  2 (US workers j * Comparison mean j)  pay level, and multiplying by 100. F-series tables show area pay relatives, comparing each surveyed area to the national estimates; the G-series tables show establishment characteristics pay relatives, contrasting national data for establishments with certain characteristics  * 100  2 (US workers j * US mean j * ECI factor) where j = published occupations in comparison (area or characteristic)  against national data for all establishments.  Interarea pay relative computation  Part II tables show pay relatives only if the national employment which corresponds to the comparison's published occupations equals at least 70 percent of the national total employment of the entire occupational group. For example, table F-l does not include a pay relative for programmers in Seattle, WA, because national employment for the programmers occupation which met publication criteria in Seattle is just 69 percent of national employment for the entire occupational  The following procedure, which reduces the effect of differing occupational composition as a factor in pay levels, is the method of pay relative construction: Numerator computation (comparison base). Multiplying average pay (“comparison  mean”) for each publishable occupational level in a comparison area or characteristic, such as industry, with the corresponding national employment (“US workers”), results in aggregate pay levels. The sum of these products for each occupation (“j”) included in the occupational group equals the comparison base  group.  Industry-specific data  (numerator) for that occupational group.  The F-series tables present pay relatives for private industry, State and local government, and all industries, combined. Table footnotes make a further distinction between types of survey coverage, whether full or limited (see appendix table 4). Area pay for an occupational group and industry level is divided by national pay for the same occupational group and industry level, for all areas. Thus, numerators and denominators, used to calculate pay relatives, may differ from each  Denominator computation (national base). National average pay (“US mean ) for  comparable occupational levels multiplied by the corresponding national employment (“US workers”) results in aggregate pay levels. Summing the products of these jobs produces a national base (denominator) for each occupational group. The national estimates represent the aggregation of data from a statistically representative area sample, and reflect an average payroll reference month of June  other in the tables. For some areas, pay relatives may not be available at the industry or all-industries level because (1) the data do not provide statistically reliable results, (2) the data possibly disclose individual establishment data, or (3) the survey has a limited industrial scope. All-industries estimates used for pay relatives combine data from private industry with State and local governments, in selected areas (type 1, as indicated in appendix table 4), even though pay data may not appear separately for  1996. Because data collection for localities in the OCS occurred throughout 1996, average payroll reference months differ among localities.

Occupational Descriptions  The primary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau's occupational pay surveys is to assist its field economists 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 grouping of occupational wage rates representing comparable job content. Because of this emphasis on comparability of occupational content, the Bureau's job descriptions may differ significantly from those in use in individual establishments or those prepared for other purposes. In applying these job descriptions, the Bureau's field economists are instructed to exclude working supervisors; apprentices; learners, beginners, and trainees; and part­ time, temporary, and probationary workers, unless specifically included in the job description. Handicapped workers whose earnings are reduced because of their handicap are also excluded. The titles and numeric codes below the job titles in this appendix are taken from the 1980 edition of the Standard Occupational Classification Manual (SOC), issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Office of Federal Statistical Policy and Standards. In general, the occupational descriptions of the Bureau of Labor Statistics are much more specific than those found in the SOC manual. The BLS occupation, "Attorney," for example, excludes workers engaged in patent work; the SOC occupation (code 211) includes patent lawyers. Thus, in comparing the results of this survey with other sources, factors such as differences in occupational definitions and survey scope should be taken into consideration.  accounting or, m rare instances, equivalent experience and education combined. Positions covered by this definition are characterized by the inclusion of work that is analytical creative, evaluative, and advisory in nature. The work draws upon and requires a thorough knowledge of the fundamental doctrines, theories, principles, and terminology of accountancy, and often entails some understanding of such related fields as business law, statistics, and general management. (See also chief accountant.) Professional responsibilities in accountant positions above levels I and II include several such duties as: Analyzing the effects of transactions upon account relationships; Evaluating alternative means of treating transactions; Planning the manner in which account structures should be developed or modified; Assuring the adequacy of the accounting system as the basis for reporting to management; Considering the need for new or changed controls; Projecting accounting data to show the effects of proposed plans on capital investments  For surveys with limited industrial coverage (type 2 on appendix table 4) the Bureau publishes private industry pay data for the shaded occupations, only.  Professional ACCOUNTANT (1412: Accountant and auditor) Performs professional operating or cost accounting work requiring knowledge of the theory and practice of recording, classifying, examining, and analyzing the data and records of financial transactions. The work generally requires a bachelor's degree in   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  income, cash position, and overall financial condition; Interpreting the meaning of accounting records, reports, and statements; Advising operating officials on accounting matters; and Recommending improvements, adaptations, or revisions in the accounting system and procedures. Accountant I and II positions provide opportunity to develop ability to perform professional duties such as those enumerated above.  In addition to such professional work, most accountants are also responsible for  assuring the proper recording and documentation of transactions in the accounts.

In addition, may also perform some nonprofessional tasks  frequently  direct  nonprofessional  personnel  in  the  preparation of standard reports and statements, and similar work.  actual  (Positions involving  such supervisory work but not including professional duties as described above are not included in this description.) Some accountants use electronic data processing equipment to process, record, and report accounting data. In some such cases the machine unit is a subordinate segment of the accounting system; in others it is a separate entity or is attached to some other organization. In either instance, provided that the primary responsibility of the position is professional accounting work of the type otherwise included, the use of data processing equipment of any type does not of itself exclude a position from the accountant description nor does it change its level.  Excluded are: a.  Top technical experts in accounting, for an organization, who are responsible for the overall direction of an entire accounting program which includes general accounting and at least one other major accounting activity such as cost, property, sales, or tax accounting;  b.  Accountants above level VI who are more concerned with administrative, budgetary, and policy matters than the day-to-day supervision of an operating accounting program; and  c.

Responsibilityfor the direction of others. Usually none.  Accountant il General characteristics. At this level, the accountant makes practical application of technical accounting practices and concepts beyond the mere application of detailed rules and instructions. Initial assignments are designed to expand practical experience and to develop professional judgment in the application of basic accounting techniques to simple problems. Is expected to be competent in the application of standard procedures and requirements to routine transactions, to raise questions about unusual or questionable items, and to suggest solutions.  Direction received. Work is reviewed to verify general accuracy and coverage of unusual problems, and to insure conformance with required procedures and special instructions.  Typical duties and responsibilities. Performs a variety of accounting tasks, e.g., prepares routine working papers, schedules, exhibits, and summaries indicating the extent of the examination and presenting and supporting findings and recommendations. Examines a variety of accounting documents to verify accuracy of computations and to ascertain that all transactions are properly supported, are in accordance with pertinent policies and procedures, and are classified and recorded according to acceptable accounting standards.

Accountant III  (Terminal positions are excluded.)  Direction received. Works under close supervision of an experienced accountant whose guidance is directed primarily to the development of the trainee's professional ability and to the evaluation of advancement potential. Limits of assignments are clearly defined, methods of procedure are specified, and kinds of items to be noted and referred to supervisor are identified.   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  General characteristics. The accountant at this level applies well established accounting principles, theories, concepts, and practices to moderately difficult problems. Receives detailed instructions concerning the overall accounting system and its objectives, the policies and procedures under which it is operated, and the nature of changes in the  system or its operation. Characteristically, the accounting system or assigned segment is stable and well established (i.e., the basic chart of accounts, classifications, the nature of the cost accounting system, the report requirements, and the procedures are changed infrequently). Depending upon the work load involved, the accountant may have such assignments as supervision of the day-to-day operation of: (a) the entire system of a relatively small organization; (b) a major segment (e.g., general accounting, cost accounting, financial statements and reports) of a somewhat larger system; or (c) in a complex system, may be assigned to a relatively narrow and specialized segment dealing with some problem, function, or portion of work which is appropriate for this level.  Direction received.  A higher level professional accountant normally is available to furnish advice and assistance as needed. Work is reviewed for technical accuracy, adequacy of professional judgment, and compliance with instructions through spot checks, appraisal of results, subsequent processing, analysis of reports and statements, and other appropriate means.  Typical duties and responsibilities. The primary responsibility of most positions at this level is to assure that the assigned day-to-day operations are carried out in accordance with established accounting principles, policies, and objectives. The accountant performs such professional work as: developing nonstandard reports and statements (e.g., those containing cash forecasts reflecting the interrelations of accounting, cost budgeting, or  accounting using standard cost, process cost, and job order techniques) for different internal operations or divisions. Depending upon the work load and degree of coordination involved, the accountant IV may have such assignments as the supervision of the day-to-day operation of: (a) an entire accounting system which has a few relatively stable accounting segments; (b) a major segment (e.g., general accounting, cost accounting, or financial statements and reports) of an accounting system serving a larger and more complex organization; or (c) in a complex system, may be assigned to a relatively narrow and specialized segment dealing with some problem, function, or portion of work which is of the level of difficulty characteristic of this level.  Direction received. A higher level accountant normally is available to furnish advice and assistance as needed. Work is reviewed by spot checks and appraisal of results for adequacy of professional judgment, compliance with instructions, and overall accuracy and quality.  Typical duties and responsibilities. As at level III, a primary characteristic of most positions at this level is the responsibility of operating an accounting system or major segment of a system in the intended manner. The accountant IV exercises professional judgment in making frequent, appropriate  comparable information); interpreting and pointing out trends or deviations from standards; projecting data into the future; predicting the effects of changes in operating  recommendations for: new accounts; revisions in the account structure; new types of ledgers, revisions in the reporting system or subsidiary records; changes in instructions regarding the use of accounts, new or refined account classifications or definitions; etc. Also makes day-to-day decisions concerning the accounting treatment of financial fransactions and is expected to recommend solutions to complex problems beyond incumbent's scope of responsibility.  programs; or identifying management informational needs, and refining account structures or reports accordingly. Within the limits of delegated responsibility, makes day-to-day decisions concerning the accounting treatment of financial transactions. In expected to recommend solutions to moderately difficult problems and propose changes in the accounting system for approval at higher levels. Such recommendations are derived from pcrscnal knowledge of the application of well-established principles and practices.  Responsibility for the direction of others.  Accounting staff supervised, if any, may  include professional accountants.  Accountant V  Responsibilityfor the direction of others. In most instances is responsible for supervision of a subordinate nonprofessional staff; may coordinate the work of lower level  General characteristics. The accountant V applies accounting principles, theories, concepts, and practices to the solution of problems for which no clear precedent exists or performs work which is of greater than average responsibility due to the nature or magnitude of the assigned work. Responsibilities at this level, in contrast to accountants at level IV, extend beyond accounting system maintenance to the solution of more complex technical and managerial problems. Work of accountants V is more directly concerned with what the accounting system (or segment) should be, what operating policies and procedures should be established or revised, and what is the managerial as well as the accounting meaning of the data included in the reports and statements for which they are responsible.  professional accountants.  Accountant IV General characteristics. At this level the accountant applies well-established accounting principles, theories, concepts, and practices to a wide variety of difficult problems. Receives instructions concerning the objectives and operation of the overall accounting system. Compared with level III, the accounting system or assigned segment is more complex, i.e., (a) is relatively unstable, (b) must adjust to new or the need to provide and   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  coordinate separate or specialized accounting treatment and reporting (e.g., cost  B  Examples of assignments characteristic of this level are supervision of the day-to-day operation of: (a) an entire accounting system which has a few relatively complex accounting segments; (b) a major segment of a larger and more complex accounting system; (c) an entire accounting system (or major segment) that is relatively stable and conventional when the work includes significant responsibility for accounting system design and development; or (d) in a complex system, may be assigned to a relatively narrow and specialized segment dealing with some problem, function, or portion of work which is itself of the level of difficulty characteristic of this level.  Direction received. An accountant of higher level normally is available to furnish advice and assistance as needed.  Work is reviewed for adequacy of professional judgment,  compliance with instructions, and overall quality.  Typical duties and responsibilities. The accountant V performs such professional work  Direction received.  A higher level professional accountant is normally available to furnish advice as needed. Work is reviewed for adequacy of professional judgment, compliance with instructions and policies, and overall quality.  Typical duties and responsibilities. Accountants at this level are delegated complete responsibility from higher authority to establish and implement new or revised accounting policies and procedures. Typically, accountants VI participate in decision-making sessions with operating managers who have policy-making authority for their subordinate organizations or establishments; recommend management actions or alternatives which can be taken when accounting data disclose unfavorable trends, situations, or deviations; and assist management officials in applying financial data and information to the solution of administrative and operating problems.

Determines whether all important matters have been disclosed and whether procedures are consistent and conform to acceptable practices. Samples and tests transactions, internal controls, and other elements of the accounting system(s) as needed  Accountant VI General characteristics. At this level, the accountant applies accounting principles, theories, concepts, and practices to specialized, unique, or nonrecurring complex problems (e.g., implementation of specialized automated accounting systems). The work is substantially more difficult and of greater responsibility than level V because of the unusual nature, magnitude, importance, or overall impact of the work on the accounting program. At this level the accounting system or segment is usually complex, i.e., (a) is generally unstable, (b) must adjust to the frequent changing needs of the organization, or (c) is complicated by the need to provide specialized or individualized reports. Examples of assignments at this level are the supervision of the day-to-day operation of: (a) a large and complex accounting system; or (b) a major segment (e.g., general accounting, property accounting, etc.) of an unusually complex accounting system requiring technical expertise in a particular accounting field (e.g., cost accounting, tax accounting, etc.).   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  to render the accounting firm's final written opinion.  Excluded are positions which do not require full professional accounting training. Also excluded are specialist positions in tax or management advisory services.  Accountant, Public I General characteristics. As an entry level public accountant, serves as a junior member of an audit team. Receives classroom and on-the-job training to provide practical experience in applying the principles, theories, and concepts of accounting and auditing to specific situations. (Positions held by trainee public accountants with advanced degrees, such as MBA’s are excluded at this level.)  Direction received. Complete instructions are furnished and work is reviewed to verify its accuracy, conformance with required procedures and instructions, and usefulness in  facilitating the accountant's professional growth. Any technical problems not covered by instructions are brought to the attention of a superior.  Typical duties and responsibilities. Carries out basic audit tests and procedures, such as: verifying reports against source accounts and records; reconciling bank and other accounts, and examining cash receipts and disbursements, payroll records, requisitions, receiving reports, and other accounting documents in detail to ascertain that transactions are properly supported and recorded. Prepares selected portions of audit working papers.  Accountant, Public II General characteristics. At this level, the public accountant carries out routine audit functions and detail work with relative independence. Serves as a member of an audit team on assignments planned to provide exposure to a variety of client organizations and audit situations. Specific assignments depend upon the difficulty and complexity of the audit and whether the client has been previously audited by the firm. On moderately complex audits where there is previous audit experience by the firm, accomplishes complete segments of the audit (i.e., functional work areas such as cash, receivables, etc.). When assigned to more complicated audits, carries out activities similar to public accountant I.  Direction received. Works under the supervision of a higher level public accountant who provides instructions and continuing direction as necessary. Work is spot checked in progress and reviewed upon completion to determine the adequacy of procedures, soundness of judgment, compliance with professional standards, and adherence to clearly established methods and techniques. All interpretations are subject to close professional review.  Typical duties and responsibilities. Carries out a variety of sampling and testing procedures in accordance with the prescribed audit program, including the examination of transactions and verification of accounts, the analysis and evaluation of accounting practices and internal controls, and other detail work. Prepares a share of the audit working papers and participates in drafting reports. In moderately complex audits, may assist in selecting appropriate tests, samples, and methods commonly applied by the firm and may serve as primary assistant to the accountant in charge. In more complicated audits concentrates on detail work. Occasionally may be in charge of small, uncomplicated audits which require only one or two other subordinate accountants. Personal contacts usually involve only the exchange of factual technical information and are usually limited to the client's operating accounting staff and department heads.  Accountant, Public III General characteristics. At this level the public accountant is in charge of a complete audit and may lead a team of several subordinates. Audits are usually accomplished one at a time and are typically carried out at a single location. The firms audited are   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  typically moderately complex, and there is usually previous audit experience by the firm. The audit conforms to standard procedural guidelines, but is often tailored to fit the client s business activities. Routine procedures and techniques are sometimes inadequate and require adaptation. Necessary data are not always readily available. When assigned to more difficult and complex audits (see level IV), the accountant may run the audit of a major component or serve as the primary assistant to the accountant in charge.  Direction received.  Works under the general supervision of a higher level public accountant who oversees the operation of the audit. Work is performed independently, applying generally accepted accounting principles and auditing standards, but assistance on difficult technical matters is available. Work may be checked occasionally during progress for appropriateness and adherence to time requirements, but routine analyses, methods, techniques, and procedures applied at the work site are expected to be correct.  Typical duties and responsibilities. Is responsible for carrying out the technical features of the audit, leading team members and personally performing the most difficult work. Carries out field work in accordance with the general format prescribed in the audit program, but selects specific methods and types and sizes of samples and tests. Assigns work to team members, furnishes guidance, and adjusts work loads to accommodate daily priorities. Thoroughly reviews work performed for technical accuracy and adequacy. Resolves anticipated problems with established guidelines and priorities but refers problems of unusual difficulty to superiors for discussion and advice. Drafts financial statements, final reports, management letters, and other closing memoranda. Discusses significant recommendations with superiors and may serve as technical resource at closing meetings with clients. Personal contacts are usually with accounting directors and assistant controllers of medium size companies and divisions of large corporations to explain and interpret policies and procedures governing the audit process.  Accountant, Public IV General characteristics. At this level, the public accountant directs field work including difficult audits—e.g., those involving initial audits of new clients, acquisitions, or stock registration-and may oversee a large audit team split between several locations. The audit team usually includes one or more level III public accountants who handle major components of the audit. The audits are complex and clients typically include those engaged in projects which span accounting periods; highly regulated industries which have various external reporting requirements; publicly held corporations; or businesses with very high dollar or transaction volume. Clients are frequently large with a variety of operations which may have different accounting systems. Guidelines may be general or lacking and audit programs are intricate, often requiring extensive tailoring to meet atypical or novel situations.  Direction received.  Works under general supervision. The supervisor sets overall technical phases of the audit. Issues not covered by guidelines or known precedents are discussed with the supervisor, but the accountant's recommended approaches and courses  of action are normally approved.  Work is reviewed for soundness of approach,  ATTORNEY  completeness, and conformance with established policies of the firm.  (211: Lawyer)  Typical duties and responsibilities. Is responsible for carrying out the operational and technical features of the audit, directing the work of team members, and personally performing the most difficult work.
