Preface
This bulletin provides results of a December 1979 survey of occupa­
tional earnings in the Denver—

Statistics' annual area wage survey program.
It was conducted by the
Bureau' s regional office in Kansas City, Mo., under the general direction
of Edward Chaiken, Assistant Regional Com missioner for Operations. The
survey could not have been accomplished without the cooperation of the many
firm s whose wage and salary data provided the basis for the statistical
information in t h i s
bulletin.
The Bureau wishes to express sincere
appreciation for the cooperation received.

Introduction

manufacturing and nonmanufacturing industries. The occupations are defined
in Appendix B. For the 31 largest survey areas, tables A - 10 through A - 15
provide similar data for establishments employing 500 workers or m ore.

This area is 1 of 72 in which the U.S. Department of Labor's
Bureau of Labor Statistics conducts surveys of occupational earnings and
related benefits.
(See list of areas on inside back cover.) In each area,
earnings data for selected occupations (A -se r ie s tables) are collected
annually. Information on establishment practices and supplementary wage
benefits (B -se r ie s tables) is obtained every third year. This report has
no B -se r ie s tables.

Table A - l provides percent changes in average hourly earnings
of office clerical workers, electronic data processing workers, industrial
nurses, skilled maintenance trades w orkers, and unskilled plant workers.
Where possible, data are presented for all industries and for manufac­
turing and nonmanufacturing separately. Data are not presented for skilled
maintenance workers in nonmanufacturing because the number of workers
employed in this occupational group in nonmanufacturing is too sm all to
warrant separate presentation. This table provides a measure of wage
trends after elimination of changes in average earnings caused by employ­
ment shifts among establishments as well as turnover of establishments
included in survey samples. For further details, see appendix A.

Each year after all individual area wage surveys have been co m ­
pleted, two summary bulletins are issued.
The first brings together data
for each metropolitan area surveyed; the second presents national and
regional estim ates, projected from individual metropolitan area data, for
all Standard Metropolitan Statistical A reas in the United States, excluding
Alaska and Hawaii.
A major consideration in the area wage survey program is the need
to describe the level and movement of wages in a variety of labor m arkets,
through the analysis of ( 1 ) the level and distribution of wages by occupation,
and (2) the movement of wages by occupational category and skill level. The
program develops information that may be used for many purposes, including
wage and salary administration, collective bargaining, and assistance in
determining plant location. Survey results also are used by the U.S. Depart­
ment of Labor to make wage determinations under the Service Contract Act
of 1965.

Tables A - 8 and A -9 provide for the first time m easures of average
pay relationships within establishments.
These m easures may differ con­
siderably from the pay relationships of overall averages published in tables
A - l through A - 6. See appendix A for details.
Appendixes

A -s e r ie s tables

Appendix A describes the methods and concepts used in the area
wage survey program and provides information on the scope of the survey.

Tables A - l through A -6 provide estimates of straight-tim e weekly
or hourly earnings for workers in occupations common to a variety of

Appendix B provides job descriptions
presentatives to classify workers by occupation.

1 Standard hours reflect the workweek for which employees receive
their regular straight-tim e 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 workers receive the same or more and half receive
the same or less than the rate shown. The middle range is defined by two
rates of pay: a fourth of the workers earn the same or less than the lower
of these rates and a fourth earn the same or more than the higher rate.

3 Earnings data relate only to workers whose sex identification was
provided by the establishment.
4 Excludes premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends,
holidays, and late shifts.
’ Estimates for periods ending prior to 1976 relate to men only for
skilled maintenance and unskilled plant workers. All other estimates relate
to men and women.
6 Data do not meet publication criteria or data not available.

Appendix A .
Scope and Method
of Survey

In each of the 72 1 areas currently surveyed, the Bureau obtains
wages and related benefits data from representative establishments within
six broad industry divisions: Manufacturing; transportation, communication,
and other public utilities; wholesale trade; retail trade; finance, insurance,
and real estate; and se r v ic e s. Government operations and the construction
and extractive industries are excluded. Establishments having fewer than a
prescribed number of workers are also excluded because of insufficient
employment in the occupations studied. Appendix table 1 shows the number
of establishm ents and workers estimated to Ve within the scope of this survey,
as w ell as the number actually studied.
Bureau field representatives obtain data by personal visits at 3 - year
intervals. In each of the two intervening years, information on employment
and occupational earnings only is collected by a combination of personal visit,
m ail questionnaire, and telephone interview from establishments participating
in the previous survey.
A sam ple of the establishments in the scope of the survey is selected
for study prior to each personal visit survey. This sample, less estab­
lishm ents which go out of business or are no longer within the industrial
scope of the survey, is retained for the following two annual surveys. In
m ost ca se s, establishm ents new to the area are not considered in the scope
of the survey until the selection of a sample for a personal visit survey.
The sampling procedures involve detailed stratification of all estab­
lishm ents within the scope of an individual area survey by industry and
number of em ployees. F rom this stratified universe a probability sample
is selected, with each establishment having a predetermined chance of se­
lection. To obtain optimum accuracy at minimum cost, a greater proportion
of large than sm all establishments is selected. When data are combined,
each establishm ent is weighted according to its probability of selection so
that unbiased estim ates are generated. F or example, if one out of four
establishm ents is selected, it is given a weight of 4 to represent itself plus
three o th ers. An alternate of the same original probability is chosen in the
sam e in d u stry-size classification if data are not available from the original
sam ple m e m b er. If no suitable substitute is available, additional weight is
assigned to a sample m em ber that is sim ilar to the m issing unit.
Occupations and earnings
Occupations selected for study are common to a variety of manufac­
turing and nonmanufacturing industries, and are of the following types: (1)
Office cle rica l; (2) professional and technical; (3) maintenance, toolroom , *

* Included in the 72 areas are 2 studies conducted by die Bureau under contract. These areas are
Akron, Ohio and Poughkeepsie-Kingston-Newburgh, N .Y . In addition, the Bureau conducts more limited area
studies in approximately 100 areas at the request of the Employment Standards Administration of the U. S.

Department of Labor.



and powerplant; and (4) m aterial movement and custodial. Occupational
classification is based on a uniform set of job descriptions designed to take
account of interestablishment variation in duties within the same job.
Occupations selected for study are listed and described in appendix B.
Unless otherwise indicated, the earnings data following the job
titles are for all industries combined. Earnings data for some of the
occupations listed and described, or for some industry divisions within the
scope of the survey, are not presented in the A -se r ie s tables because
either (1) employment in the occupation is too small to provide enough data
to m erit presentation, or (2) there is possibility of disclosure of individual
establishment data. Separate m en's and women's earnings data are not
presented when the number of workers not identified by sex is 20 percent
or m ore of the men or women identified in an occupation. Earnings data
not shown separately for industry divisions are included in data for all
industries combined. Likewise, for occupations with m ore than one level,
data are included in the overall classification when a subclassification is
not shown or information to subclassify is not available.
Occupational employment and earnings data are shown for full-tim e
w orkers, i.e ., those hired to work a regular weekly schedule. Earnings
data exclude premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays,
and late shifts. Nonproduction bonuses are excluded, but cost-of-living
allowances and incentive bonuses are included. Weekly hours for office
clerical and professional and technical occupations refer to the standard
workweek (rounded to the nearest half hour) for which employees receive
regular straight-tim e salaries (exclusive of pay for overtime at regular
and/or premium rates). Average weekly earnings for these occupations are
rounded to the nearest half dollar. Vertical lines within the distribution of
workers on some A -tab les indicate a change in the size of the class intervals.
These surveys m easure the level of occupational earnings in an area
at a particular tim e. Comparisons of individual occupational averages over
tim e m ay not reflect expected wage changes. The averages for individual jobs
are affected by changes in wages and employment patterns. For example,
proportions of workers employed by high- or low-wage firm s may change, or
high-wage workers may advance to better jobs and be replaced by new
workers at lower rates. Such shifts in employment could decrease am occu­
pational average even though m ost establishments in an area increase wages
during the year. Changes in earnings of occupational groups, shown in table
A -7 , are better indicators of wage trends than are earnings changes for
individual jobs within the groups.
Average earnings reflect composite, areawide estimates. Industries
and establishments differ in pay level and job staffing, and thus contribute
differently to the estimates for each job. Pay averages may fail to reflect
accurately the wage differential among jobs in individual establishments.

Average pay levels for men and women in selected occupations should
not be assumed to reflect differences in pay of the sexes within individual
establishments.
Factors which may contribute to differences include pro­
gression within established rate ranges (only the rates paid incumbents are
collected) and performance of specific duties within the general survey job
descriptions.
Job descriptions used to classify employees in these surveys
usually are more generalized than those used in individual establishments
and allow for minor differences among establishments in specific duties
performed.
Occupational employment estimates represent the total in all estab­
lishments within the scope of the study and not the number actually surveyed.
Because occupational structures among establishments differ, estimates of
occupational employment obtained from the sample of establishments studied
serve only to indicate the relative importance of the jobs studied. These
differences in occupational structure do not affect materially the accuracy of
the earnings data.

Percent changes for individual areas in the program are computed
as follows:
1. Average earnings are computed for each occupation for
the 2 years being compared.
The averages are derived
from earnings in those establishments which are in
the survey both years; it is assumed that employment
remains unchanged.
2.

Each occupation is assigned a weight based on its pro­
portionate employment in the occupational group in the
base year.

3. These weights are used to compute group averages.
Each occupation's average earnings (computed in step 1)
is multiplied by its weight. The products are totaled to
Obtain a group average.

Wage trends for selected occupational groups
The percent increases presented in table A -7 are based on changes
in average hourly earnings of men and women in establishments reporting the
trend jobs in both the current and previous year (matched establishments).
The data are adjusted to remove the effects on average earnings of employ­
ment shifts among establishments and turnover of establishments included
in survey samples.
The percent increases, however, are still affected by
factors other than wage increases.
Hirings, layoffs, and turnover may affect
an establishment average for an occupation when workers are paid under plans
providing a range of wage rates for individual jobs. In periods of increased
hiring, for example, new employees may enter at the bottom of the range,
depressing the average without a change in wage rates.
The percent changes relate to wage changes between the indicated
dates. When the time span between surveys is other than 12 months, annual
rates are also shown. (It is assumed that wages increase at a constant rate
between surveys.)

The ratio of group averages for 2 consecutive years is
computed by dividing the average for the current year by
the average for the earlier year.
The result— expressed
as a percent— less 100 is the percent change.

For a more detailed description of the method used to compute these
wage trends, see "Improving Area Wage Survey In dexes," Monthly Labor
Review, January 1973, pp. 52-57.
Average pay relationships within establishments
Relative measures of occupational pay are presented in table A -8
for white-collar occupations and in table A -9 for blue-collar occupations.
These relative values reflect differences in pay between occupations within
individual establishments. Relative pay values are computed by dividing an
establishment's average earnings for an occupation being compared by the
average for another occupation (designated as 100) and multiplying the quotient
by 100.
For example, if janitors in a firm average $4 an hour and forklift
operators $ 5 , forklift operators have a relative pay value of 125 compared
with janitors. ($5 -f $4 = 1.25, x 100 = 125.) In combining the relatives of
the individual establishments to arrive at an overall average, each establish­
ment is considered to have as many relatives as it has weighted workers
in the two jobs being compared.
Pay relationships based on overall averages may differ considerably
because of the varying contribution of high- and low-wage establishments to
the averages. For example, the overall average hourly earnings for forklift
operators may be 50 percent more than the average for janitors because the
average for forklift operators may be strongly influenced by earnings in
high-wage establishments while the average for janitors may be strongly
influenced by earnings in low-wage establishments. In such a case, the
intra-establishment relationship will indicate a much sm aller difference
in earnings.
Establishment practices and supplementary wage provisions
Tabulations on selected establishment practices and supplementary
wage provisions (B -series tables) are not presented in this bulletin. Informa­
tion for these tabulations is collected at 3-year intervals.
These tabulations
on minimum entrance salaries for inexperienced office workers; shift differ­
entials; scheduled weekly hours and days; paid holidays; paid vacations; and
health, insurance, and pension plans are presented (in the B -s e r ie s tables)
in previous bulletins for this area.

Appendix B.
Occupational
Descriptions
The primary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bu­
reau's wage surveys is to assist its field representatives in classifying
into appropriate occupations workers who are employed under a variety
of payroll titles and different work arrangements from establishment to
establishment and from area to area. This permits grouping occupational
wage rates representing comparable job content. Because of- this em ­
phasis on interestablishment and interarea comparability 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 representatives
are instructed to exclude working supervisors; apprentices; and parttim e, temporary, and probationary w orkers. Handicapped workers whose
earnings are reduced because of their handicap are also excluded.
Learners, beginners, and trainees, unless specifically included in the
job descriptions, are excluded.

Office
SECRETARY

SECRETARY— Continued

Assigned as a personal secretary, normally to one individual. Main­
tains a close and highly responsive relationship to the day-to-day activities of
the supervisor. Works fairly independently receiving a minimum of detailed
supervision and guidance. Perform s varied clerical and secretarial duties
requiring a knowledge of office routine and understanding of the organization,
program s, and procedures related to the work of the supervisor.

Exclusions— Continued

a. Positions which do not meet the "p erso n a l" secretary concept
described above;
b. Stenographers not fully trained in secretarial-type duties;
c. Stenographers serving as office assistants to a group of pro­
fessional, technical, or managerial persons;
d. A ssist ant-type positions which entail more difficult or more
responsible technical, administrative, or supervisory duties
which are not typical of secretarial work, e .g ., Administrative
A ssistant, or Executive Assistant:




Positions which do not fit any of the situations listed in the
sections below titled "L e v e l of S u p e r v iso r," e.g., secretary to the
president of a company that em ploys, in all, over 5 ,0 0 0 persons;

f.
Exclusions. Not all positions that are titled "s e c r e ta r y " possess the
above characteristics. Examples of positions which are excluded from the
definition are as follows:

e.

Trainees.

Secretary jobs which meet the required characteristics are matched
at one of five levels according to (a) the level of the secreta ry 's supervisor
within the company's organizational structure and, (b) the level of the
secretary's responsibility. The tabulation following the explanations of these
two factors indicates the level of the secretary for each combination of
the factors.

a.

Secretary to an executive or managerial person whose respon­
sibility is not equivalent to one of the specific level situations in
the definition for LS—
3, but whose organizational unit normally
numbers at least several dozen employees and is usually divided
into organizational segments which are often, in turn, further
subdivided. In some companies, this level includes a wide range
of organizational echelons; in others, only one or two; or

b. Secretary to the head of an individual plant, factory, etc., (or
other equivalent level of official) that em ploys, in all, fewer
than 5 ,0 0 0 persons.

NOTE: The term "corporate o fficer" used in the above LS definition
refers to those officials who have a significant corporatewide policymaking
role with regard to major company activities. The title "vice president,"
though normally indicative of 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; directly supervise a
clerical staff) are not considered to be "corporate o fficers" for purposes
of applying the definition.
Level of Secretary's Responsibility (LR)
This factor evaluates the nature of the work relationship between
the secretary and the supervisor, and the extent to which the secretary is
expected to exercise initiative and judgment. Secretaries should be matched
at LR—1 or LR— described below according to their level of responsibility.
