AREA WAGE SURVEY
Los A ngeles—Long Beach and A n a h e im —Santa A n a —Garden Grove,
California, M etro p o litan Areas, October 1972
Bulletin 1775-38

Preface
This bulletin provides results of an October 1972 survey of occupational
earnings and supplementary wage benefits in the Los Angeles—
Long Beach and
Anaheim-Santa Ana-Garden Grove, California, Standard Metropolitan Statistical
A reas (Los Angeles and Orange Counties). The survey was made as part of the
Bureau of Labor Statistics' annual area wage survey program . The program is
designed to yield data for individual metropolitan areas, as w ell as national and
regional estimates for all Standard Metropolitan A reas in the United States,
excluding Alaska and Hawaii, (as defined by the U.S. Office of Management and
Budget through November 1971).
A m ajor consideration in the area wage survey program is the need to
describe the level and movement of wages in a variety of labor markets, 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 de­
velops 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, 96 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 bene­
fits, collected every second year in the past, is now 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 estimates, projected from individual metropolitan area data.
The Los Angeles—
Long Beach and Anaheim—
Santa Ana—
Garden Grove
survey was conducted by the Bureau's regional office in San Francisco, Calif.,
under the general direction of D. Bruce Hanchett, Deputy 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
information in this bulletin. The Bureau wishes to express sincere appreciation
for the cooperation received.

Note:
Current reports on occupational earnings and supplementary wage bene­
fits in the Los Angeles—Long Beach and Anaheim—
Santa Ana—
Garden Grove areas
are available for contract cleaning (August 1971); women's and m isses' dresses
(August 1971); women's cement-process footwear (March 1971); and wood house­
hold furniture industries (October 1971); and for selected food service occupations
(October 1972). A lso 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. (See back cover for addresses.)

(See tables B -4 through B -6 .) Sums o f individual item s in tables B-2
through B-6 m a y not equal totals because of rounding.
Data on paid holidays are lim ited to holidays granted annu­
ally on a fo r m a l basis; i.e ., (1) a re provided fo r in w ritten fo rm , or
(2) a re established by custom. (See table B - 4 .) Holidays o r d in a r ily
granted are included even though they m a y fa ll on a nonworkday and
the w o r k e r is not granted another day off. The fir s t part o f the paid
holidays table presents the number of whole and half holidays actually
granted.
The second part combines whole and half holidays to show
total holiday t i m e . Table B -4 a reports the incidence o f the m ost
common paid holidays.
The su m m ary o f vacation plans is a statis tic al m easu re of
vacation p ro v is io n s rather than a m e a s u re of the proportion o f w o rk e rs

v e r te d to a tim e perio d; fo r example, 2 percent o f annual earnings
are c o n sid ered equivalent to 1 w e e k s ' pay. Only basic plans are in ­
cluded. E stim a tes exclude vacation bonuses, v acation -savin gs plans,
and "e x te n d e d " o r " s a b b a tic a l" benefits beyond basic plans.
Such
p r o visio n s a re ty p ic a l in the steel, aluminum, and can industries.
Health, insurance, and pension plans fo r which the e m p lo y er
pays at least a part of the cost include those (1) underwritten by a
c o m m e r c i a l insurance company o r nonprofit organization, (2) provided
through a union fund, o r (3) paid d ir e c t ly by the e m p lo y e r out of c u r ­
rent operating funds o r fr o m a fund set aside fo r this purpose. (See
table B - 6 .) An establishment is con sidered to have such a plan i f the
m a j o r i t y o f em p lo y e e s a re c o v e r e d under the plan even i f less than a
m a j o r i t y e le c t to participate because em p lo y e e s are requ ired to con­
tribute tow ard the cost of the plan.
Excluded a re le g a lly required
plans, such as w o rk m e n 's compensation, social secu rity, and ra ilroa d

Sickness and accident insurance is lim ited to that type o f in ­
surance under which p re d e te rm in e d cash payments a re made d ir e c tly
to the insured during t e m p o r a r y illn e s s o r accident disability. In fo r ­

The indexes a re a m e a s u re of w a g e s at a given tim e, e x p re s s e d as a
p e rc e n t of w ages during the base p erio d .
Subtracting 100 f r o m the
index yield s the p e rc e n t change in w a ges f r o m the base p e rio d to the
date of the index. The p ercen ts of change o r in c re a s e relate to wage
changes between the indicated dates. Annual rates of in c re a s e , w h ere
shown, r e f l e c t the amount of i n c r e a s e fo r 12 months when the tim e
p e r io d between su rveys was other than 12 months.
T h ese com pu­

rate between su rveys.
T h e s e es tim a te s a re m easu res of change in
a v e r a g e s fo r the a rea ; they a re not intended to m ea su re a v e ra g e pay
changes in the establishments in the area.

The index is a m e a s u re of w ages at a g iven tim e and is e x ­
p r e s s e d as a p ercen t of wages in the base year.
The base y e a r is
assigned the value o f 100 percent. The index is computed by m u lt i­
plying the base y e a r r e la t iv e (100 percent) b y the r e l a t iv e (the p e rc e n t
change plus 100 percent) f o r the next succeeding y e a r and then con ­
tinuing to m u ltiply (compound) each y e a r 's r e la t iv e by the previou s
y e a r 's index.
F o r o ffic e c l e r i c a l w o r k e r s and industria l nurses, the wage
trends relate to r e g u la r w e e k ly s a la r ie s fo r the n o rm a l w orkweek,
exclu sive of earnings f o r o v e r t im e .
F o r plan tw orker groups, they
m ea su re changes in a v e r a g e s tra ig h t-tim e hourly earnin gs, excluding
p rem iu m pay fo r o v e r t im e and fo r w o rk on weekends, holidays, and
late shifts.
The p ercen ts a re based on data f o r se le c te d key occu­
pations and include m o s t o f the n u m e r ic a lly important jobs within
each group.

Method of Computing
Each of the fo llo w in g k ey occupations within an occupational
group is assigned a constant w eight based on its proportionate e m ­
plo ym ent in the occupational group:
Office clerical (men and
w om en):

Bookkeeping-machine
operators, class B
Clerics, accounting, classes
A and B
Clerks, file, classes
A , B, and C
Clerks, order
Clerics, payroll
Keypunch operators, classes
A and B
Messengers (office boys or
girls)

Office clerical (men and
w om en )— Continued

Secretaries
Stenographers, general
Stenographers, senior
Switchboard operators, classes
A and B
Tabulating-m achine operators,
class B
Typists, classes A and B
Industrial nurses (men and
women):
Nurses, industrial (registered)

Lim itation s of Data
The indexes and p ercents of change, as m e a s u re s of change
in a re a a v e r a g e s , a re influenced by:
(1) G e n e r a l s a la r y and w age
changes, (2) m e r i t o r other in c r e a s e s in pay r e c e i v e d b y individual
w o r k e r s while in the same job, and (3) changes in a v e r a g e wages due
to changes in the labor f o r c e resulting f r o m labor tu rn over, f o r c e
expansions, f o r c e reductions, and changes in the proportion s of w o r k ­
e rs em ployed by establishments with d iffe re n t pay l e v e ls . Changes in
the labor f o r c e can cause in c r e a s e s or d e c r e a s e s in the occupational
a v e r a g e s without actual wage changes.
It is co nceivable that even
though all establishments in an a re a gave w age in c r e a s e s , a v e r a g e
w ages m a y have declined because lo w e r -p a y in g establishments entered
the a re a o r expanded their w o rk fo r c e s . S i m ila r ly , w ages m a y have
rem ained r e l a t i v e l y constant, yet a v e ra g e s f o r an a r e a m a y have ris e n
c o n s id e ra b ly because high er-p ayin g establishments entered the area.

Skilled maintenance (men):
Carpenters

Electricians
Machinists
Mechanics
Mechanics (automotive)
Painters
Pipefitters
Tool and die makers
Unskilled plant (men):
Janitors, porters, and
cleaners
Laborers, m aterial handling

NOTE: Comptometer operators, used in the computation of previous trends, are no longer
surveyed by the Bureau.

The use of constant em plo ym ent weights elim in ates the effe c t
o f changes in the p ro p o rtio n of w o r k e r s rep re s e n te d in each job in­
cluded in the data.
The percen ts o f change r e f l e c t only changes in
a v e ra g e pay f o r s tr a ig h t- tim e hours.
T h e y a re not influenced by
changes in standard w o r k schedules, as such, o r b y p r e m iu m pay
fo r o v e r tim e .
W h e re n e c e s s a ry , data a r e adjusted to r e m o v e fr o m
the indexes and p ercen ts of change any significant e ffe c t caused by
changes in the scope o f the survey.

The a v e r a g e (mean) earnings f o r each occupation are m u lti­
p lied b y the occupational weight, and the products fo r a ll occupations
in the group a re totaled. The a g g re g a te s f o r 2 consecutive y e a r s are
r e la te d by subtracting the a g g re g a te fo r the e a r l i e r y e a r fr o m the
a g g re g a te f o r the la te r y e a r and dividing the rem ain d er by the a g g r e ­
gate fo r the e a r l i e r yea r.
The result tim es 100 shows the percent
