Occupational Descriptions

The prim ary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the B ureau's wage surveys is to assist its field
staff in classifying into appropriate occupations workers who are em ployed under a variety of payroll titles
and different work arrangem ents from establishm ent to establishm ent and from area to area. This perm its
die grouping of occupational wage rates representing com parable job content. Because of this em phasis on
interestablishm ent and interarea co m parab ility of occupational content, the Bureau's job descriptions m ay
differ significantly from those in use in individual establishm ents or those prepared for other purposes. In
applying these job descriptions, the Bureau's field econom ists are instructed to exclude w orking supervisors,
apprentices, learners, beginners, trainees, handicapped, p a rt-tim e , tem porary, and probationary workers.
