1 The Atlanta Standard M etropolitan Statistical A rea, as defined by the Bureau of the Budget through January 1968, con sists of Clayton, Cobb,
DeKalb, Fulton, and Gwinnett Counties. The "w ork ers within scope of study" estim ates shown in this table provide a reasonably accu rate d escrip tion
of the size and com p osition of the labor fo r c e included in the survey. The estim ates are not intended, how ever, to serve as a b asis of com p a rison
with other em ploym ent indexes for the area to m easure em ploym ent trends o r levels since (l) planning o f wage surveys req u ires the use of establishm ent
data com piled con siderably in advance o f the p a yroll period studied, and (2) sm all establishm ents are excluded from the scope of the survey.
2 The 1967 edition of the Standard Industrial C la ssifica tion Manual was used in cla ssifyin g establishm ents by industry d ivision .
3 Includes all establishm ents with total em ploym ent at or above the minimum lim itation.
A ll outlets (within the area) of com panies in such
industries as trade, finance, auto repair se rv ice , and m otion picture theaters are con sid ered as 1 establishm ent.
4 Includes all w orkers in all establishm ents with total em ploym ent (within the area) at or above the minimum lim itation.
5 Abbreviated to "public u tilities" in the A -s e r ie s tables. T axicabs and s e rv ice s incidental to water transportation w ere excluded.
6 Abbreviated to "fin an ce" in the A -s e r ie s tables.
7 This industry d ivision is represented in estim ates fo r "a ll in d u stries" and "nonm anufacturing" in the Series A tables. Separate presentation
of data for this d ivision is not made fo r one or m ore of the following reasons: (l) Employment in the division is too sm all to p rovide enough data
to m erit separate study, (2) the sam ple was not designed initially to perm it separate presentation, (3) response was insufficient o r inadequate to
perm it separate presentation, and (4) there is possib ility of d isclo s u re of individual establishm ent data.
8 Hotels and m otels; laundries and other p ersonal s e rv ice s ; business s e rv ice s ; autom obile repair, rental, and parking; m otion p ictu res; nonprofit
m em bership organizations (excluding religiou s and charitable organizations); and engineering and a rch itectural s e rv ice s .

About tw o-fifth s of the w orkers within scope of the survey in the Atlanta area w ere em ployed in m anufacturing fir m s .
follow ing presents the m ajor industry groups and s p e cific industries as a percent of all manufacturing:

O c c u p a tio n a l D e s c rip tio n s

The prim ary purpose of preparing jo b descriptions fo r the B ureau's wage surveys is to a ssist its field staff in cla ssifyin g into appropriate
occupations w orkers who are em ployed under a variety of payroll titles and different work arrangem ents from establishm ent to establishment and
from area to area.
This perm its the grouping of occupational wage rates representing com parable job content.
Because of this emphasis on
interestablishm ent and interarea com parability of occupational content, the Bureau's jo b descriptions may differ significantly from those in use in
individual establishm ents or those prepared for other purposes.
In applying these job d escriptions, the B ureau's field econom ists are instructed
to exclude working sup ervisors; apprentices; lea rn ers; beginners; trainees; and handicapped, p art-tim e, tem porary, and probationary w orkers.
