The Bureau of Labor Statistics program of annual occupa­
tional wage surveys in metropolitan areas is designed to provide data
on occupational earnings, and establishment practices and supplemen­
tary wage provisions.
It yields detailed data by selected industry
division for each of the areas studied, for geographic regions, and for
the United States. A major consideration in the program is the need
for greater insight into (1) the movement of wages by occupational
category and skill level, and (2) the structure and level of wages
among areas and industry divisions.

studied into one bulletin. The second presents information which has
been projected from individual metropolitan area data to relate to
geographic regions and the United States.
Ninety areas currently are included in the program. In each
area, information on occupational earnings is collected annually and on
establishment practices and supplementary wage provisions biennially.
This bulletin presents results of the survey in Minneapolis—
St. Paul, Minn. , in January 1971. The Standard Metropolitan Statis­
tical Area, as defined by the Bureau of the Budget through January
1968, consists of Anoka, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, and Washington
Counties. This study was conducted by the Bureau's regional office
in Chicago, 111. , under the general direction of Lois L. O rr, A ssist­
ant Regional Director for Operations.

At the end of each survey, an individual area bulletin pre­
sents the survey results.
After completion of all of the individual
area bulletins for a round of surveys, two summary bulletins are
issued.
The first brings data for each of the metropolitan areas

Introduction
This area is 1 of 90 in which the U.S. Department of Labor's
Bureau of Labor Statistics conducts surveys of occupational earnings
and related benefits on an areawide b a sis.1

either (l) employment in the occupation is too small to provide enough
data to merit presentation, or (2) there is possibility of disclosure
of individual establishment data. 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 subclassification of secretaries or truckdrivers is not shown
or information to subclassify is not available.

This bulletin presents current occupational employment and
earnings information obtained largely by mail from the establishments
visited by Bureau field economists in the last previous survey for
occupations reported in that earlier study. Personal visits were made
to nonrespondents and to those respondents reporting unusual changes
since the previous survey.

Occupational employment and earnings data are shown for
full-time workers, i.e ., those hired to work a regular weekly schedule
in the given occupational classification. Earnings data exclude pre­
mium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and
late shifts. Nonproduction bonuses are excluded, but cost-of-living
allowances and incentive earnings are included. Where weekly hours
are reported, as for office clerical occupations, reference is to the
standard workweek (rounded to the nearest half hour) for which em­
ployees receive their regular straight-time salaries (exclusive of pay
for overtime at regular and/or premium rates). Average weekly earn­
ings for these occupations have been rounded to the nearest half dollar.

In each area, data are obtained from representative estab­
lishments within six broad industry divisions: Manufacturing; trans­
portation, 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 opera­
tions and the construction and extractive industries. Establishments
having fewer than a prescribed number of workers are omitted because
they tend to furnish insufficient employment in the occupations studied
to warrant inclusion. Separate tabulations are provided for each of
the broad industry divisions which meet publication criteria.

These surveys measure 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 groups, shown in table 2, are better
indicators of wage trends than individual jobs within the groups.

These surveys are conducted on a sample basis because of
the unnecessary cost involved in surveying all establishments. To
obtain optimum accuracy at minimum cost, a greater proportion of
large than of small establishments is studied. In combining the data,
however, all establishments are given their appropriate weight. E s ­
timates based on the establishments studied are presented, therefore,
as relating to all establishments in the industry grouping and area,
except for those below the minimum size studied.
Occupations and Earnings
The occupations selected for study are common to a variety
of manufacturing and nonmanufacturing industries, and are of the
following types: (l) Office clerical; (2) professional and technical;
(3) maintenance and powerplant; and (4) custodial and material move­
ment. Occupational classification is based on a uniform set of job
descriptions designed to take account of inter establishment variation
in duties within the same job. The occupations selected for study
are listed and described in the appendix. 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 -se rie s tables, because
1
Included in the 90 areas are four studies conducted under contract with the New York
Department of Labor. These areas are Binghamton (New Yoric portion only); Rochester (office occu­
pations only); Syracuse; and Utica—Rome. In addition, the Bureau conducts more limited area studies
in 77 areas at the request of the Wage and Hour Division of the U. S. Department of Labor.




The averages presented reflect composite, areawide esti­
mates.
Industries and establishments differ in pay level and job
staffing and, thus, contribute differently to the estimates for each job.
The pay relationship obtainable from the averages may fail to reflect
accurately the wage spread or differential maintained among jobs in
individual establishments. Similarly, differences in average pay levels
for men and women in any of the selected occupations should not be
assumed to reflect differences in pay treatment of the sexes within
individual establishments. Other possible factors which may con­
tribute to differences in pay for men and women include: Differences
in progression within established rate ranges, since only the actual
State
rates paid incumbents are collected; and differences in specific duties
performed, although the workers are classified appropriately within
the same survey job description. Job descriptions used in classifying

1

2

employees in these surveys are usually more generalized than those
used in individual establishments and allow for minor differences
among establishments in the specific duties performed.
Occupational employment estimates represent the total in all
establishments within the scope of the study and not the number actu­
ally surveyed. Because of differences in occupational structure among
establishments, the 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.




Establishment Practices and Supplementary Wage Provisions
Tabulations on selected establishment practices and supple­
mentary wage provisions (B -series tables) are not presented in this
bulletin.
Information for these tabulations is collected biennially.
These tabulations on minimum entrance salaries for inexperienced
women office workers; shift differentials; scheduled weekly hours;
paid holidays; paid vacations; and health, insurance, and pension
plans are presented (in the B -se rie s tables) in previous bulletins for
this area.

1 The M inneapolis—
St. Paul Standard M etropolitan Statistical A rea , as defined by the Bureau of the Budget through January 1968, con sists of
Anoka, Dakota, Hennepin, R am sey, and Washington Counties. The "w o rk ers within scope of study" estim ates shown in this table provide a reasonably
accurate description of the size and com position of the labor force included in the survey. The estim ates are not intended, how ever, to serve as
a basis of com parison with other em ployment indexes for the area to m easu re employment trends or lev els since (1) planning of wage surveys
requires the use of establishm ent data com piled considerably in advance of the payroll period studied, and (2) sm all establishm ents are excluded
from the scope of the survey.
2 The 1967 edition of the Standard Industrial C lassification Manual was used in classifying establishm ents by industry division.
3 Includes all establishm ents with total employment at or above the m inim um lim itation. A ll outlets (within the area) of com panies in such
industries as trad e, finance, auto repair se rv ic e , and m otion picture theaters are considered as 1 establishm ent.
4 Includes all w orkers in all establishm ents with total em ployment (within the area) at or above the m inim um lim itation.
5 Abbreviated to "pub lic u tilitie s " in the A -s e r i e s ta b les. Taxicabs and serv ice s incidental to water transportation w ere excluded.
6 Abbreviated to "fin a n c e " in the A -s e r i e s tab les.
7 This industry division is represented in estim ates for " a l l indu stries" and "nonm anufacturing" in the Series A ta b les. Separate presentation
of data for this division is not m ade for one or m ore of the following reasons: (1) Em ploym ent in the division is too sm all to provide enough data
to m erit separate study, (2) the sam ple was not designed initially to perm it separate presentation, (3) response was insufficient or inadequate to
perm it separate presentation, and (4) there is p o ssib ility of d isclosu re of individual establishm ent data.
8 Hotels and m o te ls ; laundries and other personal s e rv ic e s ; business se rv ice s; automobile rep air, rental, and parking; m otion pictures;
nonprofit m em bership organizations (excluding religious and charitable organizations); and engineering and architectural serv ice s.

About on e-h alf of the w orkers within scope of the survey in the M inneapolis—

This inform ation is based on estim ates of total employment derived from universe m aterials com piled prior to actual survey.
Proportions in various industry divisions m ay differ from proportions based on the resu lts of the survey as shown in table 1 above.

W a g e T re n d s fo r S e le c te d O ccupational G roups
Presented in table 2 are indexes and percentages of change
in average salaries of office clerical workers and industrial nurses,
and in average earnings of selected plant worker groups. The indexes
are a measure of wages at a given time, expressed as a percent of
wages during the base period. Subtracting 100 from the index yields
the percentage change in wages from the base period to the date of
the index.
The percentages of change or increase relate to wage
changes between the indicated dates. Annual rates of increase, where
shown, reflect the amount of increase for 12 months when the time
period between surveys was other than 12 months. These computations
were based on the assumption that wages increased at a constant rate
between surveys. These estimates are measures of change in aver­
ages for the area; they are not intended to measure average pay
changes in the establishments in the area.

shows the percentage change. The index is the product of multiplying
the base year relative (100) by the relative for the next succeeding
year and continuing to multiply (compound) each year's relative by the
previous year's index.
For office clerical workers and industrial nurses, the wage
trends relate to regular weekly salaries for the normal workweek,
exclusive of earnings for overtime.
For plant worker groups, they
measure changes in average straight-time hourly earnings, excluding
premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and
late shifts. The percentages are based on data for selected key occu­
pations and include most of the numerically important jobs within
each group.
Limitations of Data

Method of Computing
The indexes and percentages of change, as measures of
change in area averages, are influenced by: (1) general salary and
wage changes, (2) merit or other increases in pay received by indi­
vidual workers while in the same job, and (3) changes in average
wages due to changes in the labor force resulting from labor turn­
over, force expansions, force reductions, and changes in the propor­
tions of workers employed by establishments with different pay levels.
Changes in the labor force can cause increases or decreases in the
occupational averages without actual wage changes. It 'is conceivable
that even though all establishments in an area gave wage increases,
average wages may have declined because lower-paying establishments
entered the area or expanded their work forces.
Similarly, wages
may have remained relatively constant, yet the averages for an area
may have risen considerably because higher-paying establishments
entered the area.

Each of the following key occupations within an occupational
group was assigned a constant weight based on its proportionate em­
ployment in the occupational group:
Office clerical (men and women): Office clerical (m en and women)— Skilled maintenance (men):
Carpenters
Continued
Bookkeeping-machine
Electricians
Secretaries
operators, class B
Machinists
Stenographers, general
Clerks, accounting, classes
Mechanics

Stenographers, senior
Mechanics (automotive)
Switchboard operators, classes
Clerks, file, classes
Painters

Tool and die makers

Clerks, payroll

Comptometer operators
Unskilled plant (men):
Keypunch operators, classes
Janitors, porters, and cleaners
Industrial nurses (men and women):
A and B
Laborers, material handling
Nurses, industrial (registered)
Office boys and girls

The use of constant employment weights eliminates the effect
of changes in the proportion of workers represented in each job in­
cluded in the data.
The percentages of change reflect only changes
in average pay for straight-time hours. They are not influenced by
changes in standard work schedules, as such, or by premium pay
for overtime. Where necessary, data were adjusted to remove from
the indexes and percentages of change any significant effect caused
by changes in the scope of the survey.

The average (mean) earnings for each occupation were multi­
plied by the occupational weight, and the products for all occupations
in the group were totaled.
The aggregates for 2 consecutive years
were related by dividing the aggregate for the later year by the aggre­
gate for the earlier year. The resultant relative, less 100 percent,

O c c u p a tio n a l D e s c rip tio n s

The prim ary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the B ureau's wage surveys is to a s s is t its field staff in classifying into appropriate
occupations w orkers who are employed under a variety of payroll titles and different work arrangem ents from establishment to establishment and
from area to area .
This perm its the grouping of occupational wage rates representing comparable job content.
Because of this emphasis on
interestablishm ent and interarea com parability of occupational content, the Bureau's job descriptions may 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 working sup ervisors; apprentices; learn ers; beginners; trainees; and handicapped, p a rt-tim e, tem porary, and probationary w orkers.
