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.

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.

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 Newark and
Jersey City, N.J., in January 1971. The Standard Metropolitan Sta­
tistical Areas, as defined by the Bureau of the Budget through January
1968, consist of Essex, Hudson, M orris, and Union Counties. This
study was conducted by the Bureau's regional office in New York,
N .Y., under the general direction of Thomas N. Wakin, Assistant
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

Similar tabulations are available for other areas.

(See inside back cover.)

Current reports on occupational earnings and supplementary wage provisions in the Newark and
Jersey City areas are also available for auto dealer repair shops (August 1969); banking (November
1969); corrugated and solid fiber boxes (March 1970); and miscellaneous plastics (August 1969). Union
scales, indicative of prevailing pay levels in the Newark area, are available for building construction;
printing; local-transit operating employees; local truckdrivers and helpers.

In t r o d u c t io n
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 asis.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 -series tables, because
1
Included in the 90 areas are four studies con d u cted under con tract w ith the N ew Y ork
D epartm ent o f Labor. These areas are Bingham ton (N ew Y ork p ortion on ly); R ochester ( o f f i c e o c c u ­
pations only); Syracuse; and U tica — R om e. In addition, the Bureau conducts m ore lim ite d area studies
in 77 areas at the request o f the W age and H our D ivision o f the U. S. D epartm ent o f 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 -series tables) in previous bulletins for
this area.

1 The Newark and Jersey City Standard M etropolitan Statistical A r e a s , as defined by the Bureau of the Budget through January 1968, consist
of E s s e x , Hudson, M o r r is , and Union Counties. The "w o rk e rs within scope of study" estim ates shown in this table provide a reasonably accurate
description of the s ize 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 em ployment 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 em ployment 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 a ll establishm ents with total employment (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.

The prim ary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau'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 establishm ent to establishment and
from area to area .
This perm its the grouping of occupational wage rates representing com parable 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.

program .

Converts statements of business problem s, typically prepared by a system s analyst, into
a sequence of detailed instructions which are required to solve the problem s by automatic data
processing equipment.
Working from charts or diagram s, the program er develops the precise
instructions which, when entered into the computer system in coded language, cause the manipu­
lation of data to achieve desired resu lts. W ork involves m ost of the following: Applies knowledge
of computer capabilities, m athem atics, logic employed by com puters, and particular subject matter
involved to analyze charts and diagram s of the problem to be program ed.
Develops sequence
of program steps, w rites detailed flow charts to show order in which data w ill be processed ;
converts these charts to coded instructions for machine to follow; tests and corrects program s;
prepares instructions for operating personnel during production run; analyzes, review s, and alters
program s to increase operating efficiency or adapt to new requirem ents; maintains records of
program development and revision s. (NO TE: W orkers perform ing both system s analysis and p ro­
graming should be classified as system s analysts if this is the skill used to determine their pay.)

F or wage study purposes,

computer operators are classified as follow s:

C lass A . O perates independently, or under only general direction, a computer running
program s with m ost of the following ch aracteristics: New program s are frequently tested and
introduced; scheduling requirem ents are of critical importance to m inim ize downtime; the
program s are of com plex design so that identification of erro r source often requires a working
knowledge of the total program , and alternate program s m ay not be available. M ay give
direction and guidance to lower level operators.
C lass B . O perates independently, or under only general direction, a computer running
program s with m ost of the following ch aracteristics; M ost of the program s are established
production runs, typically run on a regularly recurring b a s is ; there is little or no testing
of new program s required; alternate program s are provided in case original program needs
m ajor change or cannot be corrected within a reasonable tim e. In com m on erro r situations,
diagnoses cause and takes corrective action. This usually involves applying previously p ro­
gram ed corrective steps, or using standard correction techniques.

BUSINESS

Does not include em ployees prim arily responsible for the management or supervision of
other electronic data processing (EDP) em ployees, or program ers prim arily concerned with
scientific a n d /o r engineering problem s.
F or wage study purposes, program ers are classified as follow s:
C lass A . W orks independently or under only general direction on com plex problem s which
require competence in a ll phases of program ing concepts and p ractices. Working from dia­
gram s and charts which identify the nature of desired resu lts, m ajor processing steps to be
accom plished, and the relationships between various steps of the problem solving routine;

working knowledge of the computer equipment used and ability to detect problem s involved in
running routine program s. U sually has received som e form al training in computer operation.
May a ssist higher level operator on com plex program s.




At this level, programing is difficult because computer equipment m ust be organized to
produce several interrelated but diverse products from numerous and diverse data elem ents.
A wide variety and extensive number of internal processing actions m ust occur. This requires
such actions as development of common operations which can be reused, establishm ent of
linkage points between operations, adjustments to data when program requirem ents exceed
computer storage capacity, and substantial manipulation and resequencing of data elements
to form a highly integrated program .
May provide functional direction to lower level program ers who are assigned to a ssist.
