1 The Indianapolis Standard Metropolitan Statistical A rea, as defined by the Office of Management and Budget (fo rm e rly the Bureau of the Budget)
through January 1968, consists of Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Marion, Morgan, and Shelby Counties. The "w orkers within scope
of study" estimates shown in this table provide a reasonably accurate description of the size and composition of the labor fo rc e included in the survey.
The estim ates are not intended, how ever, to serve as a basis of comparison with other employment indexes fo r the area to measure employment
trends or levels since (1) planning of wage surveys requires the use of establishment data compiled considerably in advance of the payroll period
studied, and (2) sm all establishments are excluded from the scope of the survey.
2 The 1967 edition of the Standard Industrial Classification Manual was used in classifying establishments by industry division.
3 Includes a ll establishments with total employment at or above the minimum 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 establishment.
4 Includes all w orkers in a ll establishments with total employment (within the area) at or above the minimum lim itation.
5 Abbreviated to "public u tilities " in the A -s e r ie s tables. Taxicabs and services incidental to water transportation w ere excluded. Indianapolis'
gas utility is municipally operated and is excluded by definition from the scope of the study.
6 This industry division is represented in estim ates fo r " a ll industries" and "nonmanufacturing" in the Series A tables. Separate presentation
of data fo r this division is not made fo r 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 permit
separate presentation, and (4) there is possibility of disclosure of individual establishment data.
7 Hotels and m otels; laundries and other personal services; business services; automobile rep air, rental, and parking; motion pictures; nonprofit
membership organizations (excluding religious and charitable organizations); and engineering and architectural services.




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

Changes in the la b o r fo r c e can cause in c re a s e s o r d e c re a s e s in the

that even though a ll establish m en ts in an a re a gave w age in c re a s e s ,

The prim ary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau's wage surveys is to assist its field staff in classifying into appropriate
occupations w orkers 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 com parability of occupational content, the Bureau's job descriptions may d iffer significantly from those in use in
individual establishments or those prepared fo r other purposes. In applying these job descriptions, the Bureau's field economists are instructed
to exclude working supervisors; apprentices; learners; beginners; trainees; and handicapped, part-tim e, tem porary, and probationary w orkers.

and operates computer; makes adjustments to computer to co rrect operating problem s and m eet
special conditions; review s e r ro rs made during operation and determines cause or refers problem
to supervisor or program er; and maintains operating records. May test and assist in correcting
program .
F or wage study purposes, computer operators are classified as follows:
Class A . Operates independently, or under only general direction, a computer running
programs with m ost of the following characteristics: New program s are frequently tested
and introduced; scheduling requirements are of critica l importance to m inim ize downtime;
the program s are of complex design so that identification of e rro r source often requires a
working knowledge of the total program , and alternate program s may not be available. May
give direction and guidance to low er lev el operators.
Class B . Operates independently, or under only general direction, a computer running
program s with most of the following ch aracteristics: Most o f the program s are established

COMPUTER OPERATOR— Continued
of new program s required; alternate program s are provided in case original program needs
m ajor change or cannot be corrected within a reasonable tim e. In common e rro r situa­
tions, diagnoses cause and takes corrective action. This usually involves applying previously
programed co rrective steps, or using standard correction techniques.
OR
Operates under direct supervision a computer running program s or segments of program s
with the ch aracteristics described fo r class A . May assist a higher level operator by inde­
pendently perform ing less difficult tasks assigned, and perform ing difficult tasks following
detailed instructions and with frequent review of operations perform ed.

19
COMPUTER PROGRAMER, BUSINESS— Continued
of data to achieve desired results. Work involves m ost of the follow ing: Applies knowledge of
computer capabilities, mathematics, logic employed by computers, and particular subject m atter

accomplished, and the relationships between various steps of the problem solving routine;
plans the full range o f programing actions needed to efficien tly utilize the computer system
in achieving desired end products.
At this level, programing is difficult because computer equipment must be organized to
produce several interrelated but diverse products from numerous and diverse data elements.
A wide variety and extensive number of internal processing actions must occur. This requires
such actions as development of common operations which can be reused, establishment of
linkage points between operations, adjustments to data when program requirements exceed
computer storage capacity, and substantial manipulation and resequencing of data elements
to form a highly integrated program .
May provide functional direction to low er level program ers who are assigned to assist.
Class B . Works independently or under only general direction on rela tively simple
program s, or on simple segments of complex program s. Program s (or segments) usually
process information to produce data in two or three varied sequences or form ats. Reports
and listings are produced by refining, adapting, arraying, or making m inor additions to or
deletions from input data which are readily available. While numerous records m ay be
processed, the data have been refined in p rior actions so that the accuracy and sequencing
of data can be tested by using a few routine checks. Typically, the program deals with
routine record-keeping type operations.
OR

May provide functional direction to low er level systems analysts who are assigned to
assist.
Class B . Works independently or under only general direction on problems that are
rela tively uncomplicated to analyze, plan, program , and operate. Problem s are of lim ited
com plexity because sources of input data are homogeneous and the output data are closely
related. (F o r example, develops systems fo r maintaining depositor accounts in a bank,
maintaining accounts receivable in a retail establishment, or maintaining inventory accounts
in a manufacturing or wholesale establishment.) Confers with persons concerned to determine
the data processing problems and advises subject-m atter personnel on the im plications of the
data processing systems to be applied.
OR
