Preface
This bulletin provides results of an August 1977 survey of occu­
pational earnings in the Boston, Massachusetts, 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 Boston, Mass., under the general direction
of Gordon E. Bowen, Assistant Regional Commissioner for Operations.
The survey could not have been accomplished without the cooperation
of the many firms 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.

Introduction
This area is 1 of 74 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, occupational
earnings data (A -series tables) are collected annually. Information on estab­
lishment practice's and supplementary wage benefits (B-series tables) is
obtained every third year. This report has no B -series tables.
Each year after all individual area wage surveys have been com­
pleted, two summary bulletins are issued. The first brings together data
for each metropolitan area surveyed; the second presents national and
regional estimates, projected from individual metropolitan area data, for
all Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas in the United States, excluding
Alaska and Hawaii.
A major consideration in the area wage survey program is the need
to describe the level and movement of wages in a variety of labor markets,
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 assistance in
determining plant location. Survey results also are used by the U.S. Depart­
ment of Labor to make wage determinations under the Service Contract Act
of 1965.




A -series tables
Tables A - 1 through A-6 provide estimates of straight-time weekly
or hourly earnings for workers in occupations common to a variety of
manufacturing and nonmanufacturing industries. For the 31 largest survey
areas, tables A - 8 through A - 13 provide similar data for establishments
employing 500 workers or more.
Table A-7 provides percent changes in average hourly earnings
of office clerical workers, electronic data processing workers, industrial
nurses, skilled maintenance trades workers, and unskilled plant workers.
Where possible, data are presented for all industries and for manufac­
turing and nonmanufacturing separately. Data are not presented for skilled
maintenance workers in nonmanufacturing because the number of workers
employed in this occupational group in nonmanufacturing is too small to
warrant separate presentation. This table provides a measure of wage
trends after elinimation of changes in average earnings caused by employ­
ment shifts among establishments as well as turnover of establishments
included in survey samples. For further details, see appendix A.
Appendixes
Appendix A describes the methods and concepts used in the area
wage survey program and provides information on the scope of the survey.
Appendix B provides job descriptions used by Bureau field econo­
mists to classify workers by occupation.
