1 The Nassau—
Suffolk Standard M etropolitan Statistical A rea , as defined by the Office of Management and Budget through February 1974, consists of Nassau and
Suffolk Counties. The "w orkers within scope of study" estim ates shown in this table provide a reasonably accurate description of the size and com position o f the labor
fo rce included in the survey. Estim ates are not intended, how ever, for com parison with other employment indexes to m easure employment trends or levels since (1)
planning of wage surveys requires establishment data com piled considerably in advance of the payroll period studied, and (2) sm all establishments are excluded from
the scope o f 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 minimum limitation. A ll outlets (within the area) of com panies in industries such as trade,
finance, auto repair s e rv ice , and motion picture theaters are con sidered as 1 establishment.
4 Includes all w orkers in all establishm ents with total employment (within the area) at o r above the minimum limitation.
5 Abbreviated to "public u tilities" in the A -s e r ie s tables. Taxicabs and se rvice s incidental to water transportation are excluded.
6 Abbreviated to "fin an ce" in the A -s e r ie s tables.
7 Hotels and m otels; laundries and other personal se rv ice s ; business s e rv ice s ; automobile rep air, rental, and parking; m otion p ictures; nonprofit membership
organizations (excluding religious and charitable organizations); and engineering and architectural se rv ice s .
