1 The Dallas—
Fort Worth Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area, as defined
by the Office of Management and Budget through February 1974, consists of Collin,
Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Hood, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant, and
Wise Counties. The "workers within scope of study" estimates shown in this table
provide a reasonably accurate description of the size and composition of the labor
force included in the survey. Estimates are not intended, however, for comparison
with other employment indexes to measure 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 establishments by industry division. However, ail government opera­
tions are excluded from the scope of the survey.
3 Includes all establishments with total employment at or above the minimum
limitation. A ll outlets (within the area) of companies in industries such as trade,

finance, auto repair service, and motion picture theaters are considered as 1
establishment.
4 Includes all workers in all establishments with total employment (within the
area) at or above the minimum limitation.
5 Abbreviated to "public utilities" in the A -series tables. Taxicabs and
services incidental to water transportation are excluded. The Dallas transit system
is municipally operated and is excluded by definition from the scope of the survey.
6 Abbreviated to "finance" in the A -series tables.
7 Hotels and motels; laundries and other personal services; business services;
automobile repair, rental, and parking; motion pictures; nonprofit membership
organizations (excluding religious and charitable organizations); and engineering and
architectural services.
