The Indianapolis Standard M etropolitan Statistical A rea, as defined by the Bureau of the Budget through January 1968, consists of Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Marion,
M organ,
and Shelby Counties. The "w o rk ers 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 to m easure employment trends or levels since (1) planning
of wage surveys requires the use of establishm ent data com piled considerably in advance of the payroll period studied, and (2) sm all establishm ents are excluded from the scope of the survey.
4 The 1967 edition of the Standard Industrial C lassification Manual was used in classifying establishm ents by industry division.
3 Includes all establishm ents with total employment at or above the minim um lim itation. A ll outlets (within the area) of companies in such industries as trade, finance, auto repair service,
and motion picture theaters are considered as 1 establishm ent.
4 Includes executive, professional, and other w orkers excluded from the separate plant and office categories.
5 Abbreviated to "public u tilities" in the A - and B -s e r ie s tables. Taxicabs and services incidental to water transportation were excluded. Indianapolis' gas utility is municipally operated
and is excluded by definition fro m the scope of the study.
8 This industry division is represented in estim ates for "a ll in du stries" and "nonmanufacturing" in the Series A tables, and for "a ll indu stries" in the Series B 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 perm it separate presentation, and (4) there is possibility of disclosure of individual establishment data.
7 W orkers from this entire industry division are represented in estim ates for "a l l in du stries" and "nonmanufacturing" in the Series A tables, but from the real estate portion only in
estim ates for " a l l in du stries" in the Series B tables. Separate presentation of data for'this division is not made for one or m ore of the reasons given in footnote 6 above.
8 Hotels and m otels; laundries and other personal serv ice s; business serv ice s; automobile repair, rental, and parking; motion pictures; nonprofit m em bership organizations (excluding
religious and charitable organizations); and engineering and architectural serv ice s.




A lm ost th ree-fifth s of the w orkers within scope of the survey in the Indianapolis
area were employed in manufacturing firm s .
The following presents the m ajor industry
groups and specific industries as a percent of all manufacturing:

NOTE:
Previously published indexes for the Indianapolis area used Decem ber 1960 as the base
period. They can be converted to the new base period by dividing them by the corresponding index
numbers for Decem ber 1967 on the Decem ber 1960 base period as shown in the table. (The result
should be multiplied by 100.)

The prim ary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau's wage surveys is to a ssist its field staff 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 perm its the grouping of occupational wage rates representing comparable job content. Because of this emphasis on
interestablishment and interarea comparability of occupational content, the B ureau's job descriptions m ay 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; learn ers; beginners; trainees; and handicapped, p a rt-tim e, tem porary, and probationary workers.

N O T E: The term "corporate o ffic e r ," used in the level definitions following, refers to
those officials who have a significant corporate-w ide policymaking role with regard to m ajor
company activities. The title "v ic e p re sid en t," though normally indicative of this role, does not
