1 The Chicago Standard Metropolitan Statistical A rea, as defined by the Office
of Management and Budget through February 1974, consists of Cook, DuPage, Kane,
Lake, M cHenry, and W ill Counties. The "w orkers within scope of study" estim ates
provide a reasonably accurate description of the size and composition of the labor
force included in the survey. Estim ates are not intended, however, for comparison
with other statistical series to m easure employment trends or levels since (1)
planning of wage surveys requires establishment data compiled considerably in
advance of the payroll period studied, and (2) small establishments are excluded
from the scope of the survey.
2 The 1972 edition of the Standard Industrial Classification Manual was used
in classifying establishm ents by industry division. All government operations are
excluded from the scope of the survey.
3 Includes all establishments with total employment at or above the minimum
lim itation. A ll outlets (within the area) of companies in industries such as trade,
finance, auto repair serv ice , and motion picture theaters are considered as one
establishm ent.




4 Includes all workers in all establishments with total employment (within the
area) at or above the minimum limitation.
5 Abbreviated to "public u tilities" in the A -s e r ie s tables.
Taxicabs and
services incidental to water transportation are excluded. The local-tran sit system
for the city of Chicago is municipally operated and is excluded by definition from
the scope of the study.
6 Separate data for this division are not presented in the A - and B -se r ie s
tables, but the division is represented in the "a ll indu stries" and "nonmanufacturing"
estim ates.
7 Hotels and m otels; laundries and other personal service s; business services;
automobile rep air, rental, and parking; motion pictures; nonprofit membership
organizations (excluding religious and charitable organizations); and engineering and
architectural serv ice s.
