Preface
This bulletin provides results of a September 1975 survey of occupational earnings in
the Kansas City, Missouri—
Kansas, Standard Metropolitan Statistical A rea (C ass, Clay,
Jackson, Platte, and Ray Counties, M o.; and Johnson and Wyandotte Counties, K ans.). The
survey was made as part of the Bureau of Labor S tatistics' annual area wage survey program .
The program is designed to yield data for individual metropolitan areas, as well as national
and regional estimates for all Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas 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. Department of Labor to
make wage determinations under the Service Contract Act of 1965.
Currently, 83 areas are included in the program . (See list of areas on inside back
cover.) In each area, occupational earnings data are collected annually. Information on
establishment practices and supplementary wage benefits is obtained every third year.
Each year after all individual area wage surveys have been completed, two summary
bulletins are issued. The first brings together data for each metropolitan area surveyed.
The second summary bulletin presents national and regional estim ates, projected from
individual metropolitan area data.
The Kansas City survey was conducted by the Bureau's regional office in Kansas
City, M o., under the general direction of Edward Chaiken, A ssociate A ssistant Regional
Director 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 infor­
mation in this bulletin. The Bureau wishes to express sincere appreciation for the cooperation
received.

Note:
Reports on occupational earnings and supplementary wage provisions in the Kansas
City area are available for hotels and motels (June 1973), banking (September 1973), auto
dealer repair shops (June 1973), fluid milk (November 1973), and department stores
(September 1973). Also available are listings of union wage rates for building trades, printing
trades, local-transit operating employees, local truckdrivers and helpers, and grocery store
employees. Free copies of these are available from the Bureau's regional offices.

Introduction
This area is 1 of 83 in which the U.S. Department of Labor's
Bureau of Labor Statistics conducts surveys of occupational earnings and
related benefits on an areawide basis. In this area, data were ob­
tained by a combination of personal visit, mail questionnaire, and
telephone interview. Representative establishments within six broad
industry divisions were contacted: Manufacturing; transportation, com­
munication, and other other public utilities; wholesale trade; retail
trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; and services. Major industry
groups excluded from these studies are government operations and
the construction and extractive industries. Establishments having fewer
than a prescribed number of workers are omitted because of insufficient
employment in the occupations studied. Separate tabulations are provided
for each of the broad industry divisions which meet publication criteria.

and material movement. In the 31 largest survey areas, tables A - l a
through A -6a provide sim ilar data for establishments employing 500
workers or more.

A -se r ie s tables

Appendixes

Tables A - 1 through A -6 provide estimates of straight-time
hourly or weekly earnings for workers in occupations common to a
variety of manufacturing and nonmanufacturing industries. Occupations
were selected from the following categories: (a) Office clerical, (b) pro­
fessional and technical, (c) maintenance and powerplant, and (d) custodial

This bulletin has two appendixes.
Appendix A describes the
methods and concepts used in the area wage survey program and
provides information on the scope of the survey. Appendix B provides
job descriptions used by Bureau field economists to classify workers in
occupations for which straight-tim e earnings information is presented.




Following the occupational wage tables is table A - 7 which
provides percent changes in average earnings of office clerical work­
e r s, electronic data processing w orkers, industrial n u rses, skilled
maintenance workers, and unskilled plant workers.
This measure of
wage trends eliminates changes in average earnings caused by em ploy­
ment shifts among establishments as well as turnover of establishments
included in survey samples. Where possible, data are presented for all
industries, manufacturing, and nonmanufacturing. Appendix A discusses
this wage trend measure.

NOTE: The percent increases presented in this table are based on changes in average
hourly earnings for establishments reporting the trend jobs in both the current and previous
year (matched establishments). They are not affected by changes in average earnings
resulting from employment shifts among establishments or 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 enter at the
bottom of the-range, depressing the average without a change in wage rates.
These w a g e trends are not linked to the w a g e indexes previously published for this
area because the wa ge indexes m e a s u r e d changes in area averages, w h er ea s these w a g e
trends m e a s u r e changes in ma tc he d establishment averages. Other characteristics of these
w a g e trends which differ f r o m the discontinued indexes include (1) earnings data of office
clerical workers and industrial nurses are converted to an hourly basis, (2) trend estimates
are provided for nonmanufacturing establishments, wh e r e possible, and (3) trend estimates
are provided for electronic data processing jobs.
For a more detailed description of the method used to compute these wage trends, see
"Improving Area Wage Survey Ind exes," Monthly Labor Review, January 1973, pp. 52-57.

Appendix A
Area wage and related benefits data are obtained by personal visits of Bureau field represent­
atives. at 3-year in terva ls.1 In each of the intervening years, information on employment and
occupational earnings is collected by a combination of personal visit, mail questionnaire, and telephone
interview from establishments participating in the previous survey.
In each of the 83 2 areas currently surveyed, data are obtained from representative estab­
lishments within six broad industry divisions: Manufacturing; transportation, communication, and other
public utilities; wholesale trade; retail trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; and services. Major
industry groups excluded from these studies are government operations and the construction and
extractive industries. Establishments having fewer than a prescribed number of workers are omitted
because of insufficient employment in the occupations studied. Separate tabulations are provided for
each of the broad industry divisions which meet publication criteria.

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 progression within established rate ranges, since 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 establishments within the scope
of the study and not the number actually surveyed. Because occupational structures among establish­
ments 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.

These surveys are conducted on a sample basis. The sampling procedures involve detailed
stratification of all establishments within the scope of an individual area survey by industry and number
of employees. From this stratified universe a probability sample is selected, with each establishment
having a predetermined chance of selection. To obtain 'optimum accuracy at minimum cost, a greater
proportion of large than sm all establishments is selected. When data are combined, each establishment
is weighted according to its probability of selection, so that unbiased estimates are generated. For
example, if one out of four establishments is selected, it is given a weight of four to represent itself
plus three others. An alternate of the same original probability is chosen in the same industry-size
classification if data are not available for the original sample member. If no suitable substitute is
available, additional weight is assigned to a sample member that is similar to the missing unit.

Occupations and Earnings

Occupations used to compute wage trends are:

Occupations selected for study are common to a variety of manufacturing and nonmanufacturing
industries, and are of the following types: (1) Office clerical; (2) professional and technical; (3)
maintenance and powerplant; and (4) custodial and material movement. 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
occupations, are not presented in the A -s e rie 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 more of the men or women identified in an
occupation. Earnings data not shown separately for industry divisions are included in all industries
combined data, where shown. Likewise, data are included in the overall classification when a sub­
classification of electronics technicians, secretaries, or truckdrivers is not shown or information to
subclassify is not available.
Occupational employment and earnings data are shown for full-tim e workers, 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-time 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.
These surveys m easure the level of occupational earnings in an area at a particular time.
Comparisons of individual occupational averages over time 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 firms 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 occupational average even though most establishments in an area
increase wages during the year. Trends in earnings of occupational groupq, shown in table A -7 ,
are better indicators of wage trends than individual jobs within the groups.

Wage trends for selected occupational groups
percents of change in table A -7 relate to wage changes between the indicated dates.
of increase, where shown, reflect the amount of increase for 12 months when the time
surveys was other than 12 months. Annual rates are based on the assumption that wages
a constant rate between surveys.

Percent changes for individual areas in the program are computed as follows:
1. Each occupation is assigned a weight based on its proportionate employment in the selected
group of occupations in the base year.
2. These weights are used to compute group averages. Each occupation's average (mean)
earnings is multiplied by its weight. The products are totaled to obtain a group average.
3. 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 results— expressed as a percent— less 100
is the percent change.
Establishment practices and supplementary wage provisions

1 Personal visits were on a 2 -y e a r c y c le before July 1972.
Z Included in the 83 areas are 13 studies condu cted by the Bureau under contract. These areas are Akron, Ohio; Austin, T e x .; Binghamton,
N. Y . —P a .; B irm ingham , A l a .; Fort Lauderdale—H ollyw ood and West Palm Beach—Boca Raton, F l a .; Lexington—Fayette, K y .; M elbourne—T itu s v ille C o co a , F la .; N orfolk—Virginia Beach—Portsmouth and Newport News—Hampton, V a. —N. C .; Poughkeepsie—Kingston—Newburgh, N. Y . ; R aleigh—
Durham, N . C . ; Syracuse, N .Y .; U tica—R o m e , N .Y .; and Westchester County, N .Y . In addition, the Bureau conducts more lim ited area studies in
approxim ately 70 areas at the request o f the E m ploym ent Standards Adm inistration o f the U. S. Department o f Labor.




Tabulations on selected establishment practices and supplementary wage provisions (B -series
tables) are not presented in this bulletin. Information for these tabulations is collected at 3-year
intervals. 1 These tabulations on minimum entrance salaries for inexperienced office workers; shift
differentials; scheduled weekly hours and days; paid holidays; paid vacations; and health, insurance, and
pension plans are presented (in the B -s e rie s tables) in previous bulletins for this area.

1 The Kansas City Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area, as defined by the office of Management and Budget through February 1974, consists
of Cass, Clay, Jackson, Platte, and Ray Counties, Mo,; and Johnson and Wyahdotte Counties, Kans. The "workers within scope of study" estimates
shown in this table provide a reasonably accurate description of the size and composition of the labor force included in the survey.
Estimates
are not intended, however, for comparison with other employment indexes to measure employment trends or levels since (1) planning of wage surveys
requires establishment data compiled considerably in advance of the payroll period stddifed, and (2) small 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 all establishments with total employment at or above the minimum limitation. All outlets (within the area) of companies in
industries such as trade, finance, auto repair service, and motion picture theaters are considered as 1 establishment.
4 Includes all workers in all establishments with total employment (within the area) at or above the minimum limitation.
5 Abbreviated to "public utilities" in the A -se rie s tables.

Appendix B. Occupational Descriptions

The primary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau's wage surveys is to assist 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 permits the grouping of occupational wage rates representing comparable job content. Because of this emphasis 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 economists are instructed
to exclude working supervisors; apprentices; learners; beginners; trainees; and handicapped, part-tim e, temporary, and probationary workers.

programs. Usually has received some form al training in computer operation. May assist higher level
operator on complex program s.

Converts statements of business problem s, typically prepared by a systems analyst, into a
sequence of detailed instructions which are required to solve the problems by automatic data processing
equipment. Working from charts or diagrams, the programmer develops the precise instructions which,
when entered into the computer system in coded language, cause the manipulation of data to achieve
desired results. Work involves most of the following: Applies knowledge of computer capabilities,
mathematics, logic employed by computers, and particular subject matter involved to analyze charts
and diagrams of the problem to be programmed; develops sequence of program steps; writes detailed
flow charts to show order in which data will be processed; converts these charts to coded instructions
for machine to follow; tests and corrects programs; prepares instructions for operating personnel
during production run; analyzes, reviews, and alters programs to increase operating efficiency or
adapt to new requirements; maintains records of program development and revisions. (NOTE: Workers

and charts which identify the nature of desired results, major processing steps to be accopnplished,
and the relationships between various steps of the problem solving routine; plans the full range
of programming actions needed to efficiently utilize the computer system in achieving desired
end products.
At this level, programming 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 lower level programmers who are

Glass A. Works independently or under only general direction on complex problems involving*
all phases of system analysis. Problems are complex because of diverse sources of input data and
multiple-use requirements of output data. (For example, develops an integrated production scheduling,
inventory control, cost analysis, and sales analysis record in which every item of each type is
automatically processed through the full system of records and appropriate followup actions are initiated
by the computer.) Confers with persons concerned to determine the data processing problems and
advises subject-matter personnel on the implications of new or revised system s of data processing
operations. Makes recommendations, if needed, for. approval of major systems installations or changes
and for obtaining equipment.
May provide functional direction to lower level system s analysts who are assigned to assist.
Class B. Works independently or under only general direction on problems that are relatively
uncomplicated to analyze, plan, program, and operate. Problems are of limited complexity because
sources of input data are homogeneous and the output data are closely related. (For example, develops
systems for 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 subjectmatter personnel on the implications of the data processing system s to be applied.
OR
Works on a segment of a complex data processing scheme or system , as described for class A.
Works independently on routine assignments and receives instruction and guidance on complex
assignments. Work is reviewed for accuracy of judgment, compliance with instructions, and to insure
proper alignment with the overall system.
Class C. Works under immediate supervision, carrying out analyses as assigned, usually
of a single activity. Assignments are designed to develop and expand practical experience in the
application of procedures and skills required for systems analysis work. For example, may assist a
higher level systems analyst by preparing the detailed specifications required by program m ers from
information developed by the higher level analyst.

assigned to assist.

Glass B . Works independently or under only general direction on relatively simple programs,
or on simple segments of complex programs. Programs (or segments) usually process information to
produce data in two or three varied sequences or formats.
Reports and listings are produced by
refining, adapting, arraying, or making minor additions to or deletions from input data which are
readily available. While numerous records may be processed, the data have been refined in prior
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
Works on complex programs (as described for class A) under close direction of a higher
level programmer or supervisor. May assist higher level programmer by independently performing
less difficult tasks assigned, and performing more difficult tasks under fairly close direction.
May guide or instruct lower level programmers.
