Appendix A.
Scope and Method
of Survey
In each o f the 72 1 areas cu rren tly surveyed, the Bureau obtains
w ages and rela ted ben efits data fro m represen tative establishm ents within
six broad industry d ivisio n s: M anufacturing; transportation, com m unication,
and oth er public u tilitie s ; w h olesale trade; re ta il trade; finance, insurance,
and re a l estate; and s e r v ic e s . Governm ent operations and the construction
and e x tra c tiv e in du stries are excluded. Establishm ents having fe w e r than a
p r e s c r ib e d num ber o f w o rk e rs are also excluded because o f insu fficient
em ploym en t in the occupations studied. Appendix table 1 shows the number
o f establish m en ts and w o rk e rs estim ated to be within the scope of this
su rv e y , as w e ll as the num ber actually studied.
Bureau fie ld re p resen ta tives obtain data by personal v is its at 3-y e a r
in te rv a ls . In each o f the two in terven in g y e a rs , inform ation on em ploym ent
and occu pational earn in gs only is co llected by a combination of p erson al
v is it , m a il qu estion n a ire, and telephone in terview fro m establishm ents
p a rticip a tin g in the p reviou s su rvey.

A sam ple o f the establishm ents in the scope o f the su rvey is
s e le c te d fo r study p r io r to each person al v is it survey.
This sam ple, less
establish m en ts which go out o f business o r are no lon ger within the industrial
scope o f the su rv e y , is retain ed fo r the follow in g two annual su rveys. In
m ost ca ses, establish m en ts new to the area are not con sidered in the scope
o f the su rvey until the sele c tio n o f a sample fo r a p erson a l v is it survey.
The sam pling p roced u res in volve detailed s tra tifica tio n o f all

and num ber o f em p lo y e e s .
F ro m this s tra tifie d universe a p rob ab ility

o f s electio n .
T o obtain optim um accuracy at m inim um cost, a g re a te r
p ro p o rtio n o f la rg e than s m a ll establishm ents is selected.
When data are
com bined, each establish m en t is w eighted according to its p rob ab ility o f
s e le c tio n so that unbiased estim ates are generated.
F o r exam ple, i f one
out o f fou r establish m en ts is s elected , it is given a weight o f 4 to rep resen t
it s e lf plus th re e o th ers.
An alternate of the same o rig in a l p rob a b ility is
chosen in the sam e in d u s try -s iz e cla ssifica tio n if data are not available
fr o m the o r ig in a l sam ple m em b er. If no suitable substitute is availab le,
additional w eigh t is assign ed to a sam ple m em b er that is s im ila r to the
m is s in g unit.

Included in the 72 areas are 2 studies conducted by the Bureau under contract.
These areas are
Akron, Ohio and Poughkeepsie—
Kingston-Newburgh, N .Y .

Occupations and earnings
Occupations selected fo r study are common to a va riety of manufac­
turing and nonmanufacturing in d u stries, and are of the follow ing types: (1)
O ffice c le r ic a l; (2) p ro fessio n a l and technical; (3) maintenance, toolroom ,
and powerplant; and (4) m a te ria l m ovem ent and custodial. Occupational
cla ssifica tio n is based on a uniform set o f job descriptions designed to take
account o f interestablishm ent va ria tion in duties within the same job.
Occupations selected fo r study are listed and described in appendix B.
Unless oth erw ise indicated, the earnings data follow ing the job titles
are fo r all industries combined. Earnings data fo r some of the occupations
listed and d escrib ed , o r fo r some industry divisions within the scope of the
su rvey, are not presented in the A - s e r ie s tables because either (1) em ploy­
ment in the occupation is too sm all to p rovide enough data to m erit p resen ­
tation, o r (2) th ere is p o ssib ility of d isclosu re o f individual establishment
data. Separate m en's and w om en's earnings data are not presented when the
number o f w ork ers not iden tified by sex is 20 percent or m ore of the men
o r women iden tified in an occupation. Earnings data not shown separately
fo r industry divisions are included in data fo r all industries combined.
L ik e w is e , fo r occupations with m ore than one le v e l, data are included in
the o v e r a ll cla ssifica tio n when a su bclassification is not shown or inform ation
to su bclassify is not available.
Occupational em ploym ent and earnings data are shown fo r fu ll-tim e
w o rk e rs , i.e ., those h ired to w ork a regu la r w eekly schedule. Earnings
data exclude prem ium pay fo r o vertim e and fo r w ork on weekends, holidays,
and late shifts.
Nonproduction bonuses are excluded, but cost-o f-livin g
allow ances and incentive bonuses are included. W eekly hours fo r office
c le r ic a l and p ro fessio n a l and technical occupations re fe r to the standard
w orkw eek (rounded to the n earest half hour) fo r which em ployees receive
regu la r stra igh t-tim e s a la ries (exclu sive o f pay fo r overtim e at regu lar
and/or prem iu m ra tes). A v e ra g e w eekly earnings fo r these occupations
are rounded to the n earest h alf d o lla r. V e r tic a l lines within the distribution
o f w o rk ers on som e A -ta b les indicate a change in the size of the class
in te rv a ls .
These su rveys m easure the le v e l of occupational earnings in an area
at a p a rticu la r tim e. Com parisons o f individual occupational averages over
tim e m ay not re fle c t expected wage changes. The averages fo r individual
jobs are affected by changes in wages and em ploym ent patterns. F o r example,
proportions o f w o rk ers em ployed by high- o r low -w age firm s may change,
o r high-w age w o rk ers m ay advance to b etter jobs and be replaced by new
w o rk ers at lo w e r rates. Such shifts in em ploym ent could decrease an
occupational average even though m ost establishm ents in an area increase
wages during the y e a r. Changes in earnings o f occupational groups, shown in
table A -7 , are b e tte r indicators o f wage trends than are earnings changes for
individual jobs within the groups.

A v e ra g e pay relationships within establishm ents
R ela tive m easures of occupational pay a re p resen ted in table A -8
fo r w h ite -c o lla r occupations and in table A -9 fo r b lu e -c o lla r occupations.
Th ese re la tiv e values re fle c t d ifferen ces in pay between occupations w ithin
individual establishm ents. R e la tiv e pay values a re computed by dividing an
establishm ent's average earnings fo r an occupation being com pared by the
a vera g e fo r another occupation (designated as 100) and m ultiplying the
quotient by 100. F o r exam ple, if ja n itors in a fir m a vera ge $4 an hour and
fo r k lift operators $5, fo rk lift op era tors have a re la tiv e pay value o f 125
com pared with jan itors. ($5 -j- $4 = 1.25 x 100 = 125.)
In com bining the
re la tiv e s of the individual establishm ents to a r r iv e at an o v e r a ll a v e ra g e ,
each establishm ent is considered to have as many re la tiv e s as it has
w eighted w ork ers in the two jobs being com pared.

The ratio of group averages fo r 2 consecu tive yea rs is
computed by dividing the a v e ra g e fo r the current year
by the a verage fo r the e a r lie r y ea r.
The result—
expressed as a percent— less 100 is the percen t change.

F o r a m ore detailed descrip tion o f the method used to compute
these w age trends

The percen t changes re la te to w age changes between the indicated

P a y relationships based on o v e r a ll a v e ra g e s m ay d iffe r con siderably

Temporary disability insurance which provides benefits to covered workers disabled by injury or illness
which is not work-connected is mandatory under State laws in California, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode
Island. Establishment plans which m eet only the leg a l requirements are excluded from these data, but those
under which (1 ) employers contribute more than is le g a lly required or (2 ) benefits exceed those specified in the
State law are included.
In Rhode Island, benefits are paid out o f a State fund to which only employees
contribute. In each o f the other three States, benefits are paid either from a State fund or through a private plan.
State fund financing: In C alifornia, only em ployees contribute to the State fund; in New Jersey,
em ployees and employers contribute; in New York, employees contribute up to a specified maximum
and employers pay the difference between the em ployees1 share and the total contribution required.
Private plan financing: In California and New Jersey, employees cannot be required to contribute
more than they would i f they w ere covered by the State fund; in New York, employees can agree
to contribute more i f the State rules that the additional contribution is commensurate with the
ben efit provided.
Federal legislation ( Railroad Unemployment Insurance A c t ) provides temporary disability insurance benefits
to railroad workers for illness or injury, whether work-connected or not. The legislation requires that employers
bear the entire cost o f the insurance.

L ife insurance includes fo rm a l plans providin g indem nity (usually
through an insurance p o lic y ) in case o f death of the co vered w o rk er.
Inform ation is also p rovid ed in table B -7 on types o f life insurance plans
and the amount o f coverage iij a ll industries combined and in m anufacturing.
A ccid en tal death and dism em berm ent insurance is lim ited to plans
which p rovide ben efit payments in case o f death o r loss o f lim b o r sight as a
d irect result o f an accident.
Sickness and accident insurance includes only those plans which
provide that p red eterm in ed cash payments be made d ire c tly to em ployees
who lose tim e fro m w ork because of illn e s s o r in ju ry, e .g ., $ 50 a week
fo r up to 26 weeks o f disab ility.
Sick lea ve plans are lim ited to fo rm a l p la n s 4 which provid e fo r
continuing an e m p lo y ee's pay during absence fro m w ork because o f illn ess.
Data collected distinguish between (1) plans which p rovide full pay with no
waiting p eriod , and (2) plans which eith er provid e p a rtia l pay o r requ ire a
waiting p eriod.
L o n g -te rm d isa b ility insurance plans p rovide payments to totally
disabled em ployees upon the expiration o f th e ir paid sick leave and/or sick ­
ness and accident insurance, o r a fte r a p redeterm in ed p eriod o f disab ility
(typ ically 6 m onths). Paym ents are made until the end of the d isa b ility, a

compensation, and p riva te pension benefits payable to the disabled em ployee.
H osp italization , su rg ica l, and m ed ical insurance plans reported
in these su rveys p rovid e fu ll o r p a rtia l payment fo r basic s e rv ic e s rendered.
H ospitalization insurance covers hospital room and board and m ay co ver
other hospital expenses. S u rgical insurance covers su rgeon s' fe e s . M ed ical
insurance co vers d o c to rs ' fees fo r hom e, o ffic e , o r hospital ca lls. Plans

M a jo r m ed ica l insurance covera ge applies to s e rv ic e s which go
beyond the basic s e rv ic e s co vered under h ospitalization, su rg ica l, and
m edical insurance. M a jo r m ed ica l insurance ty p ic a lly (1) req u ires that a
"ded u ctib le" (e .g ., $50) be m et b e fo re benefits begin, (2) has a coinsurance

certain expenses, and (3) has a sp ecified d olla r m axim um o f benefits (e .g .,
$ 10, 000 a y e a r).
Dental insurance plans p rovid e n orm al dental s e rv ic e b en efits,
