In tro d u c tio n
T h is a rea is 1 of 94 in which the U.S. D epartm ent of L a b o r's
Bureau o f L a b o r S tatistics conducts su rveys of occupational earnings
and rela ted benefits on an areaw id e b a s is .1

bined. E arnings data fo r som e of the occupations listed and d escrib ed ,
or fo r som e industry d ivision s within occupations, a re not presented in
the A - s e r ie s ta b les, because eith er (1) em ploym ent in the occupation is
too sm a ll to p ro v id e enough data to m e r it presen tation , o r (2) th ere is
p o s s ib ility of d isclo su re of individu al establishm ent data. E arnings
data not shown sep a ra tely fo r industry d ivision s are included in the
o v e r a ll c la s s ific a tio n when a su b classification o f s e c re ta rie s o r tru ckd r iv e r s is not shown or in form ation to su b cla ssify is not availab le.

T h is bu lletin presen ts cu rren t occupational em ploym ent and
earn in gs in form ation obtained la r g e ly by m a il fro m the establishm ents
v is ite d by Bureau fie ld econ om ists in the last p reviou s su rvey fo r
occupations rep orted in that e a r lie r study. P e r s o n a l v is its w e re made
to nonrespondents and to those respondents rep ortin g unusual changes
since the p reviou s su rvey.

Occupational em ploym ent and earnings data a re shown fo r
fu ll-tim e w o r k e r s , i.e ., those h ired to w ork a regu la r w eek ly schedule.
E arnings data exclude prem ium pay fo r o v e rtim e and fo r w ork on
w eekends, h olidays, and late shifts. Nonproduction bonuses a re e x ­
cluded, but c o s t- o f- liv in g allow ances and in cen tive earnings a re in ­
cluded.
W here w eek ly hours a re rep o rted , as fo r o ffic e c le r ic a l
occupations, re fe re n c e is to the standard w orkw eek (rounded to the
n ea rest h alf hour) fo r which em p loyees r e c e iv e th eir regu la r straigh ttim e s a la rie s (e x c lu s iv e of pay fo r o v e rtim e at regu la r and/or p r e ­
m ium ra tes). A v e r a g e w eek ly earnings fo r these occupations have
been rounded to the n ea rest h alf d o lla r.

In each a rea , data a re obtained fro m re p re s e n ta tiv e estab ­
lishm ents within six broad indu stry d iv is io n s : M anufacturing; tra n s ­
p ortation , com m unication, and other public u tilitie s ; w h olesa le trade;
r e ta il trad e; finance, insurance, and re a l estate; and s e r v ic e s . M a jo r
industry groups excluded fro m these studies a re govern m en t o p e ra ­
tions and the construction and e x tra c tiv e in du stries. E stablishm ents
having fe w e r than a p re s c rib e d number of w o rk e rs are om itted because
they tend to furnish in su fficien t em ploym ent in the occupations studied
to w a rra n t inclusion. Separate tabulations a re p rovid ed fo r each of
the broad industry d ivision s which m eet publication c r ite r ia .

T h ese su rveys m easu re the le v e l of occupational earnings in
an area at a p a rtic u la r tim e. C om parison s o f individual occupational
a v e ra g e s o v e r tim e m ay not r e fle c t expected w age changes.
The
a v e ra g e s fo r individual jobs a re affected by changes in w ages and
em ploym ent patterns. F o r exam ple, p roportion s of w o rk e rs em ployed
by high- or lo w -w a g e firm s m ay change o r high-w age w o rk ers m ay
advance to b e tter jobs and be rep laced by new w o rk e rs at lo w e r rates.
Such shifts in em ploym ent could d ec re a s e an occupational a vera ge even
though m ost establishm ents in an a rea in c re a s e w ages during the year.
T ren ds in earnings o f occupational groups, shown in table 2, are better
in d icators o f w age trends than individual jobs within the groups.

T h ese su rveys a re conducted on a sam ple basis because of
the u n n ecessary cost in vo lved in su rveyin g a ll establishm ents.
To
obtain optimum a ccu racy at m inim um cost, a g re a te r p rop ortion of
la rg e than of sm a ll establishm ents is studied. In com bining the data,
h o w ever, a ll establishm ents a re given th e ir ap p ropriate w eight. E s ­

as rela tin g to a ll establishm ents in the industry grouping and area ,
