1 T h e M i d l a n d and O d e s s a Standard Metropolitan Statistical Ar e a s , as defined b y the B u r e a u of the Budget through J a nu ar y 1968, consist of
M i dl an d and Ector Counties.
T h e " w o r k e r s within scope of study" estimates s h o w n in this table provide a reasonably accurate description of the
size an d composition of the labor force included in the survey.
T h e estimates are not intended, ho we v e r , to serve as a basis of c o m p a r i s o n with
other e m p l o y m e n t indexes for the ar ea to m e a s u r e e m p l o y m e n t trends or levels since (1) planning of w a g e surveys requires the use of establishment
data comp il ed considerably in advance of the payroll period studied, and (2) small establishments are excluded f r o m the scope of the survey.
