Presented in table 2 are indexes ai.d percents of change in
average weekly salaries of office clerical workers and industrial
n u rses, and in average hourly earnings of selected plantworker groups.
The indexes are a m easure of wages at a given tim e, expressed as a
percent of wages during the base period. Subtracting 100 from the
index yields the percent change in wages from the base period to the
date of the index. The percents of change or increase relate to wage
changes between the indicated dates. Annual rates of increase, where
shown, reflect the amount of increase for 12 months when the time
period between surveys was other than 12 months.
These compu­
tations are based on the assumption that wages increased at a constant
rate between surveys.
These estim ates are m easures of change in
averages for the area; they are not intended to m easure average pay
changes in the establishments in the area.

The index is a m easure of wages at a given tim e and is ex­
pressed as a percent of wages in the base year.
The base year is
assigned the value of 100 percent. The index is computed by m u lti­
plying the base year relative (100 percent) by the relative (the percent
change plus 100 percent) for the next succeeding year and then con­
tinuing to multiply (compound) each y ear's relative by the previous
y e a r's index.
For office clerica l workers and industrial n u rses, the wage
trends relate to regular weekly salaries for the norm al workweek,
exclusive of earnings for overtim e.
For plantworker groups, they
m easure changes in average straight-tim e hourly earnings, excluding
premium pay for overtim e and for work on weekends, holidays, and
late shifts.
The percents are based on data for selected key occu­
pations and include m ost of the num erically important jobs within
each group.

Method of Computing
Each of the following key occupations within an occupational
group is assigned a constant weight based on its proportionate em ­
ployment in the occupational group;

Limitations of Data

Office clerical (men and
women):
Bookke eping- machine
operators, class B
Clerks, accounting, classes
A and B
Clerks, file, classes
A , B, and C
Clerks, order
Clerks, payroll
Keypunch operators, classes
A and B
Messengers (o ffice boys or
girls)

The indexes and percents of change, as m easu res of change
in area averages, are influenced by;
(l) General salary and wage
changes, (2) m erit or other increases in pay received by individual
workers while in the same job, and (3) changes in average wages due
to changes in the labor force resulting from labor turnover, force
expansions, force reductions, and changes in the proportions of work­
ers employed by establishments with different pay lev els. Changes in
the labor force can cause increases or decreases in the occupational
averages without actual wage changes.
It is conceivable that even
though all establishments in an area gave wage in creases, average
wages may have declined because lower-paying establishments entered
the area or expanded their work fo rces. Sim ilarly, wages may have
remained relatively constant, yet averages for an area m ay have risen
considerably because higher-paying establishments entered the area.

O ffice clerical (men and
wom en)— Continued
Secretaries
Stenographers, general
Stenographers, senior
Switchboard operators, classes
A and B
Tabulating-machine operators,
class B
Typists, classes A and B
Industrial nurses (men and
women):
Nurses, industrial (registered)

Skilled maintenance (men):
Carpenters
Electricians
Machinists
Mechanics
Mechanics (automotive)
Painters
Pipefitters
Tool and die makers
Unskilled plant (men):
Janitors, porters, and
cleaners
Laborers, material handling

NOTT: Comptometer operators, used in the computation of previous trends, are no longer
surveyed by the Bureau.

The use of constant employment weights elim inates the effect
of changes in the proportion of workers represented in each job in­
cluded in the data.
The percents of change reflect only changes in
average pay for straight-tim e hours.
They are not influenced by
changes in standard work schedules, as such, or by premium pay
for overtim e. Where n ecessa ry , data are adjusted to rem ove from
the indexes and percents of change any significant effect caused by
changes in the scope of the survey.

The average (mean) earnings for each occupation are m ulti­
plied by the occupational weight, and the products for all occupations
in the group are totaled. The aggregates for 2 consecutive years are
related by subtracting the aggregate for the earlier year from the
aggregate for the later year and dividing the remainder by the aggre­
gate for the earlier year.
The result tim es 100 shows the percent
of change.
