Appendix A.

Change in Occupational Description:

Secretary

Since the Bureau*s last survey, the occupational description for
secretary was revised in order to obtain salary inform ation for more sp ecific
categories.

zation and the scope of the supervisor’ s position are considered in dis­
tinguishing these levels. D ata published under the com posite title o f
secretary are not com parable to data previously published.

The revised descriptions for secretary (classes A , B, C, D) classify
these workers according to levels o f responsibility. The size o f the organi­

The revised occupational descriptions are included in appendix B.

Appendix B. Occupational Descriptions

The primary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau’ 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 arrangements from establishm ent to establishm ent and from area to area. This permits
the grouping of occupational wage rates representing com parable job content. Because of this emphasis on
interestablishment and interarea com parability of occupational content, the Bureau’s job descriptions m ay
differ significantly from 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, handicapped, part-tim e, temporary, and probationary workers.
