N O T E : The percent increases presented in this table are based on changes in average
hourly earnings for establishments reporting the trend jobs in both the currept and previous
year (matched establishments). Th e y are not affected by changes in average earnings
resulting fr o m em pl oy me nt shifts a m o n g establishments or turnover of establishments
included in survey samples. Th e percent increases, however, are still affected by factors
other than wa ge increases. Hirings, layoffs, and turnover m a y affect an establishment
average for an occupation w h e n workers are paid under plans providing a range of wa ge rates
for individual jobs. In periods of increased hiring, for example, n e w employees enter at the
bottom of the range, depressing the average without a change in wage rates.
These wa g e trends are not linked to the w a g e indexes previously published for this
area because the wa g e indexes m e a s u r e d changes in area averages, whereas these wage
trends m e a s u r e changes in matched 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, where possible, and (3) trend estimates
are provided for electronic data processing jobs.
Fo r a m o r e detailed description of the m e th od used to compute these wa ge trends, see
"Improving Ar e a W a g e Survey Indexes," Monthly Labor R e vi ew, January 1973, pp. 52-57.
