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 u tilities; 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 w orkers are also excluded because of insufficient
employment in the occupations studied. Appendix table 1 shows the number
of establishm ents and w orkers estimated to be within the scope of this survey,
as w ell as die 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 a il 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 o st c a 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 ro m 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
o f large than sm a ll establishm ents 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 oth 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 sam ple 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)
O ffice c le rica l; (2) profession al and technical; (3) maintenance, toolroom ,

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 -s e r ie s tables because
either (1) employment in the occupation is too sm all 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 neareat 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 may 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 an 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 estim ates. Industries
staffing, and thus contribute
averages may fail to reflect
in individual establishments.

Appendix B.
Occupational
Descriptions
The prim ary 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, tem porary, and probationary workers. Handicapped workers whose
earnings are reduced because of their handicap are also excluded.
L earn ers, 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. P erform s varied clerical and secretarial duties
requiring a knowledge of office routine and understanding of the organization,
p rogram s, and procedures related to the work of the supervisor.

Exclusions— C ontinue d
e.

Positions which do not fit any of the situations listed in the
sections below titled "L e v e l of S u p erv iso r," e .g , secretary to the
president of a company that em ploys, in all, over 5,000 persons;

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

Classification by Level
Secretary jobs which meet the required characteristics are matched
at one of five levels according to (a) the level of the secretary'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. Positions which do not meet the. "personal" 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;

Level of Secretary's Supervisor (LS)

d. A ssistant-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 ssistan t, or Executive Assistant:
