Area Wage Survey
The Cincinnati, Ohio—Ky.—Ind., Metropolitan Area
Introduction
Occupational em plo ym en t and earnings data are shown for
f u l l - t i m e w o r k e r s , i . e . , those hired to work a reg ular weekly schedule
in the given occupational c la s s ific a t io n .
Earnings data exclude p r e ­
m iu m pay for o v e r t im e and for work on week ends, holidays, and
late shifts.
Nonproduction bonuses are excluded, but c o s t - o f -l iv i n g
bonuses and incentive earnings are included. Where weekly hours are
reported, as for office c l e r i c a l occupations, r efer en c e is to the stand­
ard workweek (rounded to the n ea re s t half hour) for which employees
r ec eiv e their reg ular s t r a i g h t -t i m e s a la r ie s (exclusiv e of pay for
o v er tim e at regular a n d /o r p r em iu m rates). A v er a g e weekly earnings
for these occupations have been rounded to the n ea re st half dollar.

This area is 1 of 86 in which the U.S. D epartm ent of L a b o r 's
Bureau of La bor S tatistic s conducts surveys of occupational earnings
and relate d ben ef its on an areawide b a s i s .
This bulletin presen ts current occupational em ployment and
earnings in fo rm ation obtained la rg el y by m ail fr o m the est ablishm en ts
visi ted by Bureau field econ om ists in the last previous survey for
occupations rep orte d in that ea rlier study. P e rso n al v isits were made
to nonrespondents and to those respondents reporting unusual changes
since the previous su rvey.
In each a re a, data are obtained fr o m r epresen ta tiv e e s t a b ­
lish m en ts within six broad industry divisions: Manufacturing; t r a n s ­
portation, com m u n ica tio n , and other public utilities; w h o le sale trade;
retail tra de; finance, insura nce, and real estate; and s e r v i c e s .
Major
industry groups excluded fr o m these studies are government o p e r a ­
tions and the construction and extractive industries.
Estab lish m en ts
having fe wer than a p r e s c r i b e d number of workers are omitted because
they tend to furnish insufficient employment in the occupations studied
to warra nt inclusion. Se parate tabulations are provided for each of the
broad industry divisio n s which meet publication c r it e r i a .

The a vera ge s prese nte d reflec t c o m p o s it e , areawide e s t i ­
m ates .
Industries and esta blis h m en ts differ in pay level and job
staffing and, thus, contribute diffe rently to the e s tim a tes for each job.
The pay relatio nship obtainable fr o m the a verages m ay fail to reflect
accu rately the wage spread or diffe rential maintained among jobs in
individual esta b lis h m en ts . S i m i la r l y , diffe re n ce s in average pay leve ls
for men and women in any of the selected occupations should not be
assum e d to reflec t diffe re n ce s in pay treatment of the sexes within
individual es ta b lis h m en ts . Other po s s ible fa cto rs which may contrib ­
ute to diffe re n ce s in pay for men and women include: Diffe rences in
p r o g r e s s i o n within established rate r an g es, since only the actual rates
paid incumbents are c olle c ted ; and diffe re n ce s in specific duties p e r ­
fo r m e d , although the w o r k er s are approp riate ly c la s s ifie d within the
sa m e survey job description .
Job d escription s used in class ifying e m ­
ployees in these su rvey s are usu ally m o r e g en eraliz ed than those used
in individual establis h m en ts and allow for minor diffe re nces among
esta blis h m en ts in the spe cific duties p e rfo r m e d .

T h e s e su rvey s are conducted on a sample b asis because of
the u n n e c e s s a r y cost involved in surveying all es ta blis h m en ts .
To
obtain optim um a c c u r a c y at m inimum cost, a g re a ter proportion of
la rg e than of s m a l l establis h m en ts is studied. In combining the data,
how ev er, all es ta b lis h m en ts are given their appropriate weight.
Es­
tim a te s b ased on the establishm ents studied are prese nte d, th erefo re,
as relating to all esta blis h m en ts in the industry grouping and are a,
except for those below the minim um size studied.

Occupational em plo ym ent e stim ates rep r es e n t the total in all
establis h m en ts within the scop e of the study and not the number a c ­
tually surveyed .
B ec a u s e of d iffe re n ce s in occupational structure
among es ta b lis h m en ts , the e s tim a tes of occupational employm ent o b ­
tained fr o m the sa m p le of es ta blis h m en ts studied s e r v e only to indicate
the relative im portan ce of the jobs studied. These diffe re nces in o c c u ­
pational structure do not m a t e r i a l ly affect the a ccu racy of the e a r n ­
ings data.

Occupations and Earnings
The occupations sel ected for study are com m on to a variety of
m anufacturing and nonmanufacturing in dustries, and are of the fo llo w ­
ing t yp es: ( l ) O ff ic e c l e r i c a l ; (2) pr o fes s io n a l and technical; (3) m a i n ­
tenance and powerplant; and (4) custodial and m aterial m o v e m e n t . O c ­
cupational c la s s if i c a t i o n is base d on a unifo rm set of job descriptions
design ed to take account of in te re sta blish ment variation in duties within
the sam e jo b . The occupations sel ected for study a re listed and d e ­
s c r ib ed in the appendix. The earnings data following the job titles are
for all in du stries com bin ed. Earnings data for some of the occupations
li s ted and d e s c r i b e d , or for some industry divisions within occupations,
are not prese n te d in the A - s e r i e s tables because either ( l ) em p lo y ­
ment in the occupation is too sm all to provide enough data to m erit
presen tation , or (2) there is possi bility of d isc lo su re of individual e s ­
tablish m en t data.

The "w orkers within scope of study"
estim ates shown in this table provide a reasonably accurate description of the size and composition of the labor force included in the survey.
The
estim ates are not intended, however, to serve as a basis of com parison with other employment indexes for the area tom easure employment trends or
levels since (1) planning of wage surveys requires the use of establishment data compiled considerably in advance of the payroll period studied, and
(2) sm all establishments are excluded from the scope of the survey.
2 The 1957 revised edition of the Standard Industrial C lassification Manual and the 1963 Supplement were used in classifying establishm ents by
industry division.
3 Includes all establishm ents with total employment at or above the minimum limitation.
All outlets (within the area) of companies in such
industries as trade, finance, auto repair service, and motion picture theaters are considered as 1 establishment.

5 Taxicabs and services incidental to water transportation were excluded.
6 This industry division is represented in estim ates for "a ll in du stries" and "nonmanufacturing" in the Series A tables.
Separate presentation
of data for this division is not made for one or m ore of the following reasons: (1) Employment in the division is too sm all to provide enough data
to m erit separate study, (2) the sample was not designed initially to perm it separate presentation, (3) response was insufficient or inadequate to
permit separate presentation, and (4) there is possibility of disclosure of individual establishment data.

in the occupational group. T h e s e constant weights refle ct base year
em plo ym ents w h e re ve r p o s s i b l e .
The a vera ge (mean) earnings for
each occupation w e r e multip lied by the occupation weight, and the
products for all occupations in the group w e r e totaled. The aggregate s

The resultant

F o r office c le r i c a l w o r k e r s and industrial n u r s e s , the wage

of earnings at o v er tim e p r e m i u m r a t e s .
For plant w o r k er gro ups,
they
m e a s u r e changes in a vera ge s t r a i g h t -t i m e hourly earnings,
excluding p r e m iu m pay for o v e r t im e and for work on weekends,
holidays, and late shifts.
The pe rc e n ta ge s are based on data for
se lected key occupations and include m o s t of the n u m er ic a lly important
jobs within each group.

Changes in the labor fo rce can cause i n c r e a s e s or d e c r e a s e s in the
occupational average s without actual wage c h a n g es . It is conceiv able
that even though all establis h m en ts in an a re a gave wage i n c r e a s e s ,
a verage wages may have declined b e c a u s e lo w e r - p a y i n g e sta blish m en ts
entered the area or expanded their work f o r c e s .
S i m i la r l y , w ages
m ay have remained relativ ely constant, yet the a v e r a g e s fo r an a rea
may have risen con siderably b ecau se h ig h e r-p a y in g es ta b lis h m en ts
entered the area.

Limita tio ns of Data
The indexes and pe rc e n ta ge s of change, as m e a s u r e s of
change in a re a a v e r a g e s , are influenced by:
(l) general sa lar y and
wage changes,
(2) m e r it or other i n c r e a s e s in pay r e c eiv ed by
individual w o r k e r s while in the same jo b , and (3) changes in a verage
wa ges due to changes in the labor fo r c e resulting f r o m labor turn­
o ver, fo r c e ex pansi ons, fo r c e reduction s, and changes in the p r o p o r ­
tions of w o r k e r s em plo yed by esta blis h m en ts with different pay l e v e l s .




The use of constant em p lo y m en t weights elim in ate s the effect
of changes in the proportion of w o r k e r s r e p r e s e n te d in each job
included in the data. The pe rc e n ta ge s of change reflec t only changes
in avera ge pay for s tra igh t-tim e h o u r s .
They a re not influenced by
changes in standard work s c h ed ules, as such, or by p r e m i u m pay
for o v e r t i m e .
Data w ere adjusted where n e c e s s a r y to r e m o v e f r o m

1 Standard hours reflect the workweek for which employees receive their regular straight-time salaries (exclusive of pay for overtime at regular and/or premium rates), and the earnings correspond
to these weekly hours.
2 The mean is computed for each job by totaling the earnings of all workers and dividing by the number of workers.
The median designates position— half of the employees surveyed receive more
than the rate shown; half receive less than the rate shown. The middle range is defined by 2 rates of pay; a fourth of the workers earn less than the lower of these rates and a fourth earn more than the
higher rate.
3 May include workers other than those presented separately.

Appendix.

Occupational Descriptions

The primary purpose of preparing jo b descriptions for the Bureau’ s wage surveys is to assist its field
staff in classifying into appropriate occupations workers who are em ployed under a variety o f payroll titles
and different work arrangements from establishment to establishment and from area to area.
This permits
the grouping of occupational wage rates representing comparable job content.
Because of this emphasis on
interestablishment and interarea com parability 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, trainees, handicapped, part-tim e, temporary, and probationary workers.

duties which are not typical o f secretarial work.
NOTE: The term "corporate officer," used in the level definitions
follow ing, refers to those officials who have a significant corporate-wide
policym aking role with regard to major company activities.
The title
"v ice president, " though normally indicative o f this role, does not in all
cases identify such positions. Vice presidents whose primary responsibility
is to act personally on individual cases or transactions (e. g. , approve or
deny individual loan or credit actions; administer individual trust accounts;
