AREA WAGE SURVEY
Nassau—Suffolk, New York, Metropolitan Area
June 1975
B ulletin 1 8 5 0 -3 9




U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
Ruraan of Labor Statistics




Preface
This bulletin provides results of a June 1975 survey of occupational earnings and
supplementary wage benefits in the Na ssau—
Suffolk, New York, Standard Metropolitan
Statistical Area (Nassau and Suffolk 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 well as national and regional estimates for all
Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas in the United States, excluding Alaska and Hawaii.
A major 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 develops 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, 82 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 benefits is 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 Na ssau—
Suffolk survey was conducted by the Bureau's regional office in
New York, N.Y., under the general direction of Alvin I. Margulis, Associate Assistant
Regional Director for Operations. The survey could not have been accomplished without
the cooperation of the many firms 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:
Reports on occupational earnings and supplementary wage provisions in the Nassau—
Suffolk area are available for the department stores (September 1973), construction
(September 1973), and auto dealer repair shops (June 1973) industries.

Introduction
This area is 1 of 82|in which the U.S. Department of Labor's
Bureau of Labor Statistics conducts surveys of occupational earnings and
related benefits on an areawide basis. In this area, data were obtained
by personal visits of Bureau field economists to representative estab­
lishments within six broad industry divisions: Manufacturing; transpor­
tation, 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 operations and the
construction and extractive industries. Establishments having fewer than
a prescribed number of workers are omitted because of insufficient
employment in the occupations studied. Separate tabulations are provided
for each of the broad industry divisions which meet publication criteria.
A -series tables
Tables A - l through A -6 provide estimates of straight-time
hourly or weekly earnings for workers in occupations common to a
variety of manufacturing and nonmanufacturing industries. Occupations
were selected from the following categories: (a) Office clerical, (b) pro­
fessional and technical, (c) maintenance and powerplant, and (d) custodial
and material movement. In the 31 largest survey areas, tables A -l a
through A -6 a provide similar data for establishments employing 500
workers or more.
Following the occupational wage tables is table A -7 which
provides percent changes in average earnings of office clerical work­
ers, electronic data processing workers, industrial nurses, skilled




maintenance workers, and unskilled plant workers. This measure of
wage trends eliminates changes in average earnings caused by employ­
ment shifts among establishments as well as turnover of establishments
included in survey samples. Where possible, data are presented for all
industries, manufacturing, and nonmanufacturing. Appendix A discusses
this wage trend measure.
B -se r ie s tables
The B -series tables present information on minimum entrance
salaries for office workers; late-shift pay provisions and practices for
plant workers in manufacturing; and data separately for plant and office
workers on scheduled weekly hours and days of first-sh ift w orkers;, paid
holidays; paid vacations; and health, insurance, and pension plans.
Appendixes
This bulletin has two appendixes. Appendix A describes the
methods and concepts used in the area wage survey program. It provides
information on the scope of the area survey and information on the area's
industrial composition in manufacturing. It also provides information
on labor-management agreement coverage. Appendix B provides job
descriptions used by Bureau field economists to classify workers in
occupations for which straight-time earnings information is presented.

Earnings data in table A - 6 a relate only to workers wh o s e sex

Table A-7. Percent increases in average hourly earnings for selected
occupational groups, adjusted for employment shifts
NOTE:
Data for table A - 7 are not available for the N a ss au—
Suffolk survey since this is the first year a survey of comparable
scope w a s conducted in the area.
Reference to table A - 7 in the standard text of the bulletin does
not apply in this area.

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 current and previous
year (matched establishments). T h e y are not affected by changes in average earnings
resulting f r o m e m 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 g e 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 w a g e 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 w a g e rates.
These w a g e trends are not linked to the w a g e indexes previously published for this
area because the wage indexes m e a s u r e d changes in area averages wh er ea s these w a g e trends
m e a s u r e changes in m a t c h e d 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 w h e r e possible, and (3) trend estimates are
provided for electronic data processing jobs.
Fo r a m o r e detailed description of the me t h o d used to compute these w a g e trends, see
"Improving Ar e a W a g e Survey Indexes," Monthly La bo r R e v i e w , January 1973, pp. 52-57.

Footnotes
A ll of these standard footnotes may not apply to this bulletin.

1 Standard hours reflect the workweek for which employees receive their regular straight-time salaries (exclusive of pay for overtime
at regular and/or premium rates), and the earnings correspond to these weekly hours.
2 The mean is computed for each job by totaling the earnings of all workers and dividing by the number of workers. The median
designates position— half of the employees surveyed receive more and half receive less than the rate shown. The middle range is defined
by two rates of pay; a fourth of the workers earn less than the lower of these rates and a fourth earn more than the higher rate.
3 Excludes premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts.
4 These salaries relate to formally established minimum starting (hiring) regular straight-time salaries that are paid for standard
workweeks.
5 Excludes workers in subclerical jobs such as m essenger.
6 Data are presented for all standard workweeks combined, and for the most common standard workweeks reported.
7 Includes all plant workers in establishments currently operating late shifts, and establishments whose formal provisions cover late
shifts, even though the establishments were not currently operating late shifts.
8 L ess than 0.05 percent.
9 Less than 0.5 percent.
10 For purposes of this study, pay for a Sunday in December, negotiated in the automobile industry, is not treated as a paid holiday.
1 A ll combinations of full and half days that add to the same amount are combined; for example, the proportion of workers receiving
1
a total of 9 days includes those with 9 full days and no half days, 8 full days and 2 half days, 7 full days and 4 half days, and so on.
Proportions then were cumulated.
12 A Christmas—
New Year holiday period is an unbroken series of holidays which includes Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's
Eve, and New Y ea r's Day.
Such a holiday period is common in the automobile, aerospace, and farm implement industries.
1 "F loatin g" holidays vary from year to year according to employer or employee choice.
3
1 Includes payments other than "length of t im e ," such as percentage of annual earnings or flat-sum payments, converted to an
4
equivalent time basis; for example, 2 percent of annual earnings was considered as 1 week's pay. Periods of service are chosen arbitrarily
and do not necessarily reflect individual provisions for progression; for example, changes in proportions at 10 years include changes between
5 and 10 years. Estim ates are cumulative. Thus, the proportion eligible for at least 3 weeks' pay after 10 years includes those eligible for
at least 3 weeks' pay after fewer years of service.
1 Estimates listed after type of benefit are for all plans for which at least a part of the cost is borne by the employer. "Noncontributory
5
plans" include only those financed entirely by the employer. Excluded are legally required plans, such as workmen's compensation, social
security, and railroad retirement.
18 Unduplicated total of workers receiving sick leave or sickness and accident insurance shown separately below. Sick leave plans are
limited to those which definitely establish at least the minimum number of days' pay that each employee can expect. Informal sick leave
allowances determined on an individual basis are excluded.







Appendix A
A r e a w a g e and related benefits data are obtained by personal visits of B u r e a u field represent­
atives at 3-year intervals. 1 In each of the intervening years, information on e m p l o y m e n t and
occupational earnings is collected by a combination of personal visit, mail questionnaire, and telephone
interview f r o m establishments participating in the previous survey.
In each of the 82 2 areas currently surveyed, data are obtained fr om representative estab­
lishments within six broad industry divisions: Manufacturing; transportation, communication, and other
public utilities; wholesale trade; retail trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; and services. Ma j o r
industry groups excluded f r o m these studies are government operations and the construction and
extractive industries. Establishments having fewer than a prescribed n u m b e r of wo rk er s are omitted
because of insufficient e m p l o y m e n t in the occupations studied. Separate tabulations are provided for
each of the broad industry divisions which m e e t publication criteria.
Th e s e surveys are conducted on a sa mple basis. T h e sampling procedures involve detailed
stratification of all establishments within the scope of an individual area survey by industry and n u m b e r
of employees. F r o m this stratified universe a probability sample is selected, with each establishment
having a predetermined chance of selection. T o obtain o p t i m u m accuracy at m i n i m u m cost, a greater
proportion of large than small establishments is selected. W h e n data are combined, each establishment
is weighted according to its probability of selection, so that unbiased estimates are generated. F o r
example, if one out of four establishments is selected, it is given a weight of four to represent itself
plus three others. A n alternate of the s a m e original probability is chosen in the s a m e industry-size
classification if data are not available for the original sample m e m b e r . If n o suitable substitute is
available, additional weight is assigned to a sample m e m b e r that is Bimilar to the missing unit.
Occupations and Earnings
Occupations selected for study are c o m m o n to a variety of manufacturing and nonmanufacturing
industries, and are of the following types: (1) Office clerical; (2) professional and technical; (3)
maintenance and powerplant; and (4) custodial and material mo v e m e n t . Occupational classification is
based on a uniform set of job descriptions designed to take account of interestablishment variation
in duties within the s a m e job. Occupations selected for study are listed and described in appendix B.
Unless otherwise indicated, the earnings data following the job titles are for all industries combined.
Earnings data for s o m e of the occupations listed and described, or for s o m e industry divisions within
occupations, are not presented in the A-series tables, because either (1) e m pl oy me nt in the occupation
is too small to provide enough data to merit presentation, or (2) there is possibility of disclosure of
individual establishment data. Separate m e n ' s and w o m e n ' s earnings data are not presented w h e n the
n u m b e r of w o r k e r s not identified by sex is 20 percent or m o r e of the m e n or w o m e n identified in an
occupation. Earnings data not sh o w n separately for industry divisions are included in all industries
co mb i n e d data, w h e r e shown. Likewise, data are included in the overall classification w h e n a sub­
classification of electronics technicians, secretaries, or truckdrivers is not sh ow n or information to
subclassify is not available.
Occupational e m p l o y m e n t and earnings data are shown for full-time workers, i.e., those hired
to w o r k a regular weekly schedule. Earnings data exclude p r e m i u m pay for overtime and for w o r k on
weekends, holidays, and late shifts. Nonproduction bonuses are excluded, but cost-of-living allowances
and incentive bonuses are included. W e e k l y hours for office clerical and professional and technical
occupations refer to the standard w o r k w e e k (rounded to the nearest half hour) for which employees
receive regular straight-time salaries (exclusive of pay for overtime at regular and/or p r e m i u m rates).
A v er ag e weekly earnings for these occupations are rounded to the nearest half dollar.
T h e s e surveys m e a s u r e the level of occupational earnings in an area at a particular time.
C o m p a r i s o n s of individual occupational averages over time m a y not reflect expected w a g e changes.
T h e averages for individual jobs are affected by changes in wa g e s and e m p l oy me nt patterns. F o r
example, proportions of w o r k e r s e m p l o y e d by high- or low-wage firms m a y change, or high-wage

Personal visits were on a 2 -y e a r c y c le before July 1972.
Included in the 82 areas are 12 studies condu cted by the Bureau under contract. These areas are Akron, O hio; Austin, T e x .; Binghamton,

w o rk er s m a y advance to better jobs and be replaced by n e w wo rk er s at lower rates. Such shifts in
e m p l o y m e n t could decrease an occupational average even though m o s t establishments in an area
increase w a g e s during the year. Tr ends in earnings of occupational groups, shown in table A-7,
are better indicators of w a g e trends than individual jobs within the groups.
Average earnings reflect composite, areawide estimates. Industries and establishments differ
in pay level and job staffing, and thus contribute differently to the estimates for each job. Pay
averages m a y fail to reflect accurately the w a g e differential a m o n g jobs in individual establishments.
Average pay levels for m e n and w o m e n in selected occupations should not be a s s u m e d to
reflect differences in pay of the sexes within individual establishments. Factors which m a y contribute
to differences include progression within established rate ranges, since only the rates paid incumbents
are collected, and pe rformance of specific duties within the general survey job descriptions. Job
descriptions used to classify employees in these surveys usually are m o r e generalized than those used
in individual establishments and allow for m i n o r differences a m o n g establishments in specific
duties performed.
Occupational e m p l o y m e n t estimates represent the toted in all establishments within the scope
of the study and not the n u m b e r actually surveyed. B e ca us e occupational structures a m o n g establish­
me n t s differ, estimates of occupational e m p l o y m e n t obtained f r o m the sa mple of establishments studied
serve only to indicate the relative importance of the jobs studied. Th es e differences in occupational
structure do not affect materially the accuracy of the earnings data.

Percent chsmges for individual areas in the p r o g r a m are co mp u t e d as follows:
1. E a c h occupation is assigned a weight based on its proportionate em pl o y m e n t in the selected
group of occupations in the base year.
2. Th e s e weights are used to co mp ut e group averages. E a c h occupation's average (mean)
earnings is multiplied by its weight. T h e products are totaled to obtain a group average.
3. T h e ratio of group averages for 2 consecutive years is c o m p u t e d by dividing the average
for the current year by the average for the earlier year. T h e resulte-*-expressed as a percent— less 100
is the percent change.

Establishment practices and supplementary w a g e provisions
The B-series tables provide information on establishment practices and supplementary w a g e
provisions for full-time plant and office workers.
"Plant wo rk e r s " include working f o re me n and all
nonsupervisory w o rk er s (including le ad me n and trainees) engaged in nonoffice functions. Cafeteria
workers and rout em en are excluded f r o m manufacturing, but included in nonmanufacturing industries.
"Office work er s" include working supervisors and nonsupervisory w o rk er s performing clerical or
related functions. Administrative, executive, professional, and part-time employees are excluded.
Part-time employees are those hired to w o r k a schedule calling regularly for fewer weekly hours than
the establishment's schedule for full-time employees in the s a m e general type of work. T h e
determination is based on the employer's distinction between the tw o groups which m a y take into
account not only differences in w o r k schedules but differences in pay and benefits.
M i n i m u m entrance salaries for office w o rk er s relate only to the establishments visited. (See
table B-l.) Be ca us e of the o p t i m u m sampling techniques used and the probability that large
establishments are m o r e likely than small establishments to have formal entrance rates above the
subclerical level, the table is m o r e representative of policies in m e d i u m and large establishments.
Shift differential data are limited to full-time plant workers in manufacturing industries. (See
table B-2.) This information is presented in t e r m s of (1) establishment policy 3 for total plant w o r k e r
employment, and (2) effective practice for w o rk er s e m pl oy ed on the specified shift at the time of the
survey. In establishments having varied differentials, the am ou nt applying to a majority is used. In
establishments having s o m e late-shift hours paid at n o r m a l rates, a differential is recorded only if it
applies to a majority of the shift hours. A second (evening) shift ends w o r k at or near midnight. A
third (night) shift starts w o r k at or near midnight.
The scheduled weekly hours and days of a majority of the first-shift wo rk er s in an establish­
me n t are tabulated as applying to all full-time plant or office wo rk er s of that establishment. (See
table B-3.) Scheduled weekly hours and days are those which a majority of full-time employees are
expected to w o r k for straight-time or overtime rates.
Paid holidays; paid vacations; and health, insurance, and pension plans are treated statistically
as applying to all full-time plant or office wo rk er s if a majority of such wo rk er s are eligible or m a y
eventually qualify for the practices listed. (See tables B - 4 through B-6.) S u m s of individual items in
tables B- 2 through B - 5 m a y not equal totals because of rounding.

T h e s u m m a r y of vacation plans is a statistical m e a s u r e of vacation provisions rather than a
m e a s u r e of the proportion of full-time w o r k e r s actually receiving specific benefits. (See table B-5.)
Provisions apply to all plant or office w o r k e r s in an establishment regardless of length of service.
P a y m e n t s on other than a time basis are converted to a time period; for example, 2 percent of
annual earnings are considered equivalent to 1 week's pay. Only basic plans are included. Estimates
exclude vacation bonuses, vacation-savings plans, and "extended" or "sabbatical" benefits be yo nd basic
plans. Such provisions are typical in the steel, al uminum, and can industries.
Health, insurance, and pension plans for which the e m p l o y e r 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 c o m p a n y or nonprofit organization, (2)
provided through a union fund, or (3) paid directly by the e m p l o y e r out of current operating funds or
f r o m a fund set aside for this purpose.
(See table B-6.) A n establishment is considered to have
such a plan if the majority of employees are covered even though less than a majority participate
under the plan because employees are required to contribute to wa rd the cost. Excluded are
legally required plans, such as w o r k m e n ' s compensation, social security, and railroad retirement.
Sickness and accident insurance is limited to that type of insurance under which predetermined
cash payments are m a d e directly to the insured during t e m p o r a r y illness or accident disability.
Information is presented for all such plans to wh ic h the em pl o y e r contributes. H o we ve r, in N e w
Y o r k and N e w Jersey, which have enacted te m p o r a r y disability insurance laws requiring em pl o y e r
contributions,4 plans are included only if the em pl o y e r (1) contributes m o r e than is legally required,
or (2) provides the employee with benefits which exceed the requirements of the law. Tabulations of
paid sick leave plans are limited to formal plans5 which provide full pay or a proportion of the
worker's pay during absence f r o m w o r k because of illness. Separate tabulations are presented
according to (1) plains which provide full pay and no waiting period, and (2) plans which provide either
partial pay or a waiting period. In addition to the presentation of proportions of w o r k e r s provided
sickness and accident insurance or paid sick leave, an unduplicated total is sh ow n of w o r k e r s w h o
receive either or both types of benefits.
Long t e r m disability insurance plans provide p a y m e n t s to totally disabled em ployees upon the
expiration of their paid sick leave and/or sickness and accident insurance, or after a predetermined
period of disability (typically 6 months). P a y m e n t s are m a d e until the end of the disability, a
m a x i m u m age, or eligibility for retirement benefits. Full or partial paym en ts are almost always
reduced b y social security, w o r k m e n ' s compensation, and private pensions benefits payable to the
disabled employee.

Data on paid holidays are limited to holidays granted annually on a formed basis, which (1)
are provided for in written form, or (2) are established by custom.
(See table B-4.) Holidays
ordinarily granted are included even though they m a y fall on a no nw or kd ay and the w o r k e r is not
granted another day off. T h e first part of the paid holidays table presents the n u m b e r of whole and
half holidays actually granted. T h e second part combines whole and half holidays to s h ow total holiday
time. Table B - 4 a reports the incidence of the m o s t c o m m o n paid holidays.

Ma j o r medical insurance plans protect em ployees f r o m sickness and injury expenses beyond
the coverage of basic hospitalization, medical, and surgical plans. Typical features of m a j o r medical
plans are (1) a "deductible" (e.g., $50) paid by the insured before benefits begin; (2) a coinsurance
feature requiring the insured to pay a portion (e.g., 20 percent) of certain expenses; and (3) stated
dollar m a x i m u m benefits (e.g., $ 10,000 a year). Medical insurance provides complete or partial
p a y m e n t of doctors' fees. Dental insurance usually covers fillings, extractions, and X-rays. Excluded
are plans which cover only oral surgery or accident da ma ge .
Retirement pension plans provide
paym en ts for the remainder of the worker's life.

3 An establishment was considered as having a p o lic y if it m et either o f the follow in g conditions: (1 ) Operated late shifts at the tim e o f the
survey, or (2 ) had form al provisions covering late shifts. A n establishment was considered as having form al provisions if it (1 ) had operated late
shifts during the 12 months before the survey, or (2 ) had provisions in written form to operate late shifts.

The temporary disability laws in C alifornia and Rhode Island do not require em ployer contributions.
® A n establishment is considered as having a form al plan if it established at least d ie m inim um number o f days sick lea ve ava ila ble to each
em p loy ee.
Such a plan need not b e written; but informal sick lea ve allow ances, determ ined on an individual basis, are exclu ded .

1 T h e N a s sau—Suffolk Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area, as defined by the Office of M a n a g e m e n t and Budget through F e br ua ry 1974, consists of N a s s a u and Suffolk Counties, The
"w orkers within scope of study" estimates sh ow n in this table provide a reasonably accurate description of the size and composition of the labor force included in the survey. Estimates are
not intended, however, for co mp a r i s o n with other em pl o y m e n t indexes 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 establishment data compiled considerably
in advance of the payroll period studied, and (2) small establishments are excluded f r o m the scope of the survey.
2 T h e 1967 edition of the Standard Industrial Classification Manual w a s used to classify establishments by industry division,

A n establishment is considered to have a contract covering all plant or office workers
if a majority of such w o rk er s are covered by a la bo r - m a n a g e m e n t agreement. Therefore,
all other plant or office w o rk er s are empl oy ed in establishments that either do not have
l a b o r - ma na ge me nt contracts in effect, or have contracts that apply to fewer than half of
their plant or office workers. Estimates are not necessarily representative of the extent
to which all w o rk er s in the area m a y be covered by the provisions of labor-management
agreements, because small establishments are excluded and the industrial scope of the survey
is limited.




Appendix B. Occupational Descriptions
T h e p r i m a r y purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau's w a g e surveys is to assist its field staff in classifying into appropriate
occupations w o rk er s w h o are em ployed under a variety of payroll titles and different w o r k arrangements f r o m establishment to establishment and
f r o m area to area. This permits the grouping of occupational w a g e rates representing comparable job content. B e ca us e of this emph as is on
interestablishment and interarea comparability of occupational content, the Bureau's job descriptions m a y differ significantly f r o m those in use in
individual establishments or those prepared for other purposes. In applying these job descriptions, the Bureau's field economists are instructed
to exclude working supervisors; apprentices; learners; beginners; trainees; and handicapped, part-time, temporary, and probationary workers.

OFFICE
BILLER, M A C H I N E

CLERKS, AC CO U N T I N G

P r ep ar es statements, bills, and invoices on a machine other than an ordinary or electromatic
typewriter. M a y also keep records as to billings or shipping charges or perform other clerical w o r k
incidental to billing operations. F o r w a g e study purposes, billers, machine, are classified by type of
machine, as follows:

P e r f o r m s one or m o r e accounting clerical tasks such as posting to registers and ledgers;
reconciling bank accounts; verifying the internal consistency, completeness, and mathematical accuracy
of accounting documents; assigning prescribed accounting distribution codes; examining and verifying
for clerical accuracy various types of reports, lists, calculations, posting, etc.; or preparing simple or
assisting in preparing m o r e complicated journal vouchers. M a y w o r k in either a ma nu al or automated
accounting system.

Biller, m a ch in e (billing machine). Us e s a special billing machine (combination typing and
adding machine) to prepare bills and invoices f r o m customers' purchase orders, internally prepared
orders, shipping m e m o r a n d u m s , etc. Usually involves application of predetermined discounts and
shipping charges and entry of necessary extensions, which m a y or m a y not be computed on the billing
machine, and totals wh ic h are automatically accumulated by machine. Th e operation usually involves a
large n u m b e r of carbon copies of the bill being prepared and is often done on a fanfold machine.
Biller, m a ch in e (bookkeeping ma chine). Uses a bookkeeping machine (with or without a
typewriter keyboard) to prepare customers' bills as part of the accounts receivable operation.
Generally involves the simultaneous entry of figures on customers' ledger record. T h e machine
automatically accumulates figures on a n u m b e r of vertical columns and computes and usually prints
automatically the debit or credit balances. Do es not involve a knowledge of bookkeeping. W o r k s f r o m
uniform and standard types of sales and credit slips.

T h e w o r k requires a knowledge of clerical me th od s and office practices and procedures which
relates to the clerical processing and recording of transactions and accounting information. With
experience, the wo r k e r typically b e c o m e s familiar with the bookkeeping and accounting te rm s and
procedures used in the assigned work, but is not required to have a knowledge of the formal principles
of bookkeeping and accounting.
Positions are classified into levels on the basis of the following definitions.
Class A. Un d e r general supervision, pe rforms accounting clerical operations which require
the application of experience and judgment, for example, clerically processing complicated or
nonrepetitive accounting transactions, selecting a m o n g a substantial variety of prescribed accounting
codes and classifications, or tracing transactions though previous accounting actions to determine
source of discrepancies. M a y be assisted by one or m o r e class B accounting clerks.

BOOKKEEPING-MACHINE OPERATOR
Operates a bookkeeping m a c h i n e (with or without a typewriter keyboard) to keep a record of
business transactions.

Class B . Un d e r close supervision, following detailed instructions and standardized procedures,
perf or ms one or m o r e routine accounting clerical operations, such as posting to ledgers, cards, or
worksheets wh e r e identification of items and locations of postings are clearly indicated; checking
accuracy and completeness of standardized and repetitive records or accounting documents; and coding
documents using a few prescribed accounting codes.

Class A . Ke ep s a set of records requiring a knowledge of and experience in basic bookkeeping
principles, and familiarity with the structure of the particular accounting system used. Determines
proper records and distribution of debit and credit items to be used in each phase of the work. M a y
prepare consolidated reports, balance sheets, and other records by hand.

CLERK, FILE

Class B . Ke e p s a record of one or m o r e phases or sections of a set of records usually
requiring little knowledge of basic bookkeeping. Phases or sections include accounts payable, payroll,
customers' accounts (not including a simple type of billing described under biller, machine), cost
distribution, expense distribution, inventory control, etc. M a y check or assist in preparation of trial
balances and prepare control sheets for the accounting department.

Revised occupational descriptions for switchboard operator; switchboard operator-receptionist; machine-tool operator, toolroom; and tool and die m a k e r are being introduced this year.
T h e y are the result of the Bureau's policy of periodically reviewing area wage survey occupational
descriptions in order to take into account technological developments and to clarify descriptions so
that they are m o r e readily understood and uniformly interpreted. Even though the revised
descriptions reflect basically the s a m e occupations as previously defined, s o m e reporting changes
m a y occur because of the revisions.
T h e n e w single level description for switchboard operator Ls not the equivalent of the two
levels previously defined.




Files, classifies, and retrieves material in an established filing system. M a y perform
clerical and ma n u a l tasks required to maintain files. Positions are classified into levels on the basis
of the following definitions.
Class A . Classifies and indexes file material such as correspondence, reports, technical
documents, etc., in an established filing sy st em containing a n u m b e r of varied subject matter files.
M a y also file this material. M a y keep records of various types in conjunction with the files. M a y

correction techniques.
OR

F o r w a g e study purposes, c o mp ut er operators are classified as follows:
Class A . Operates independently, or under only general direction, a co mputer running
p r o g r a m s with m o s t of the following characteristics: N e w p r o g r a m s are frequently tested and
introduced; scheduling requirements are of critical importance to minimize downtime; the p r o g r a m s
are of c o m p l e x design so that identification of error source often requires a working knowledge of the
total pr og r a m , and alternate p r o g r a m s m a y not be available. M a y give direction and guidance to
lower level operators.




Operates under direct supervision a comp ut er running p r o g r a m s or segments of p r og ra ms
with the characteristics described for class A. M a y assist a higher level operator by independently
performing less difficult tasks assigned, and performing difficult tasks following detailed instructions
and with frequent review of operations performed.
Class G . W o r k s on routine p r o g r a m s under close supervision. Is expected to develop working
knowledge of the co mputer equipment used and ability to detect pr oblems involved in running routine
pr og ra ms . Usually has received s o m e formal training in co mputer operation. M a y assist higher level
operator on c o mp le x programs.

Converts statements of business problems, typically prepared by a systems analyst, into a
sequence of detailed instructions which are required to solve the prob le ms by automatic data processing
equipment. W o rk in g f r o m charts or diagrams, the p r o g r a m m e r develops the precise instructions which,
w h e n entered into the comp ut er s y st em in coded language, cause the manipulation of data to achieve
desired results. W o r k involves m o s t of the following: Applies knowledge of co mputer capabilities,
mathematics, logic e m pl oy ed by computers, and particular subject matter involved to analyze charts
and diagrams of the p r ob le m to be p r o g r a m m e d ; develops sequence of p r o g r a m steps; writes detailed
flow charts to sh o w order in which data will be processed; converts these charts to coded instructions
for machine to follow; tests and corrects programs; prepares instructions for operating personnel
during production run; analyzes, reviews, and alters p r o g r a m s to increase operating efficiency or
adapt to n e w requirements; maintains records of p r o g r a m development and revisions. ( N O T E : W o r k e r s
performing both systems analysis and p r o g r a m m i n g should be classified as systems analysts if this is
the skill used to determine their pay.)
Does not include em ployees primarily responsible for the m a n a g e m e n t or supervision of other
electronic data processing employees, or p r o g r a m m e r s primarily concerned with scientific and/or
engineering problems.
Fo r w a g e study purposes, p r o g r a m m e r s are classified as follows:
Class A . W o r k s independently or under only general direction on co mp le x problems which
require competence in all phases of p r o g r a m m i n g concepts and practices. Wo rk in g f r o m diagrams
and charts which identify the nature of desired results, m a j o r processing steps to be accomplished,
and the relationships between various steps of the p r ob le m solving routine; plans the full range
of p r o g r a m m i n g actions needed to efficiently utilize the comp ut er sy st em in achieving desired
end products.
At this level, p r o g r a m m i n g is difficult because computer equipment m u s t be organized to
produce several interrelated but diverse products f r o m n u m e r o u s and diverse data elements. A wide
variety and extensive n u m b e r of internal processing actions mu s t occur. This requires such actions as
development of c o m m o n operations which can be reused, establishment of linkage points between
operations, adjustments to data w h e n p r o g r a m requirements exceed comp ut er storage capacity, and
substantial manipulation and resequencing of data elements to f o r m a highly integrated program.

Class A . W o r k s independently or under only general direction on c o mp le x p r ob le ms involving
all phases of system analysis. P r o b l e m s are co mp le x because of diverse sources of input data and
multiple-use requirements of output data. (For example, develops an integrated production scheduling,
inventory control, cost analysis, and sales analysis record in which every item of each type is
automatically processed through the full sy s t e m of records and appropriate followup actions are initiated
by the computer.) Confers with persons concerned to determine the data processing p r ob le ms and

M a y provide functional direction to lower level sy st em s analysts w h o are assigned to assist.
Class B . W o r k s independently or under only general direction on prob le ms that are relatively
uncomplicated to analyze, plan, prog ra m, and operate. P r o b l e m s are of limited complexity because
sources of input data are ho mo ge ne ou s and the output data are closely related. (For example, develops
systems for maintaining depositor accounts in a bank, maintaining accounts receivable in a retail
establishment, or maintaining inventory accounts in a manufacturing or wholesale establishment.)
Confers with persons concerned to determine the data processing pr ob l e m s and advises subjectmatter personnel on the implications of the data processing systems to be applied.
