P r e fa c e
The Bureau of Labor Statistics program of annual occupa­
tional wage surveys in metropolitan areas is designed to provide data
on occupational earnings, and establishm ent p ractices and supplemen­
tary wage provision s.
It yields detailed data by selected industry
division for each of the areas studied, for geographic regions, and
for the United States.
A m ajor consideration in the program is the
need for greater insight into (1) the movement of wages by occupa­
tional category and skill le v e l, and (2) the structure and level of
wages among areas and industry divisions.

At the end of each survey, an individual area bulletin p r e ­
sents the survey r e su lts.
After completion of all of the individual
area bulletins for a round of su rvey s, two sum m ary bulletins are
issued.
The fir st brings data for each of the metropolitan areas

studied into one bulletin.
The second presents inform ation which
has been projected from individual m etropolitan area data to relate
to geographic regions and the United States.
Ninety areas currently a re included in the p ro gra m .
In each
a re a , inform ation on occupational earnings is collected annually and on
establishm ent practices and supplementary wage provisions biennially.
This bulletin presents results of the survey in San Fran cisco—
Oakland, C alif. , in October 1970.
The Standard M etropolitan Statis­
tical A r e a , as defined by the Bureau of the Budget through January
1968, consists of A lam ed a, Contra C osta , M arin , San F ra n cisco , and
San Mateo Counties.
This study was conducted by the Bureau's
regional office in San F r a n c isc o , C a l i f ., under the general direction
of Adolph O. B e r g e r , A ssista n t Regional D irector for Operations.

In tro d u c tio n
This area is 1 of 90 in which the U.S. Department of L abor's
Bureau of Labor Statistics conducts surveys of occupational earnings
and related benefits on an areawide b a s is .1

either (l) employment in the occupation is too sm all to provide enough
data to m e rit presentation, or ( 2) there is possibility of disclosure
of individual establishm ent data. Earnings data not shown separately
for industry divisions are included in all industries combined data,
where shown. Likew ise, data are included in the overall classification
when a subclassification of secreta ries or truckdrivers is not shown
or inform ation to su bclassify is not available.

This bulletin presents current occupational employment and
earnings inform ation obtained largely by m ail from the establishm ents
visited by Bureau field econom ists in the last previous survey for
occupations reported in that ea rlier study. P erson al v isits were made
to nonrespondents and to those respondents reporting unusual changes
since the previous survey.

Occupational employment and earnings data are shown for
fu ll-tim e w orkers, i .e ., those hired to work 3, regular weekly schedule
in the given occupational classification .
Earnings data exclude p re ­
m ium pay for overtim e and for work on weekends, holidays, and
late shifts.
Nonproduction bonuses are excluded,* but c o st-o f-liv in g
allowances and incentive earnings are included. W here weekly hours
are reported, as for office clerica l occupations, reference is to the
standard workweek (rounded to the nearest half hour) for which em ­
ployees receive their regular straigh t-tim e sa la ries (exclusive of pay
for overtim e at regular an d/or prem ium rates). A verage weekly earn­
ings for these occupations have been rounded to the nearest half dollar.

In each area, data are obtained from representative estab­
lishm ents within six broad industry divisions: Manufacturing; tran s­
portation, communication, and other public u tilities; wholesale trade;
retail trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; and se r v ic e s. M ajor
industry groups excluded from these studies are government opera­
tions and the construction and extractive industries. Establishm ents
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 m eet publication criteria.

These surveys m easure the level of occupational earnings in
an area at a particular tim e. C om parisons of individual occupational
averages over tim e m ay not reflect expected wage changes.
The
averages for individual jobs are affected by changes in wages and
employment patterns. For exam ple, proportions of w orkers employed
by high- or low -w age firm s may change or high-wage w orkers may
advance to better jobs and be replaced by new w orkers at lower rates.
Such shifts in employment could decrease an occupational average even
though m ost establishm ents 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 b a sis because of
the unnecessary cost involved in surveying all establishm ents.
To
obtain optimum accuracy at minim um cost, a greater proportion of
large than of sm all establishm ents is studied. In combining the data,
however, a ll establishm ents are given their appropriate weight. E s ­
tim ates 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 c lerica l; (2) professional and technical;
(3) maintenance and powerplant; and (4) custodial and m aterial m ove­
ment. Occupational classification is based on a uniform set of job
descriptions designed to take account of inter establishm ent 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 -s e r ie s tables, because
1
Included in the 90 areas are four studies conducted under contract with the New York
Department of Labor. These areas are Binghamton (New Yoik portion only); Rochester (office occu­
pations only); Syracuse; and Utica—Rome. In addition, the Bureau conducts more limited area studies
in 77 areas at the request of the Wage and Hour Division of the U. S. Department of Labor.




The averages presented reflect com posite, areawide e sti­
m ates.
Industries and establishm ents differ in pay level and job
staffing and, thus, contribute differently to the estim ates 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 establishm ents. S im ilarly, differences in average pay levels
for men and women in any of the selected occupations should not be
assum ed to reflect differences in pay treatm ent of the sexes within
individual establishm ents.
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
perform ed, although the workers are cla ssified appropriately within
the same survey job description. Job descriptions used in classifying

1

2

em ployees in these surveys are usually m ore generalized than those
used in individual establishm ents and allow for minor differences
among establishm ents in the specific duties perform ed.
Occupational employment estim ates 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
establishm ents, the estimates of occupational employment obtained from
the sample of establishm ents studied serve only to indicate the relative
importance of the jobs studied.
These differences in occupational
structure do not affect m aterially the accuracy of the earnings data.




Establishm ent P ractices and Supplementary Wage P rovisions

Tabulations on selected establishm ent practices and supple­
mentary wage provisions (B -s e r ie s tables) are not presented in this
bulletin.
Information for these tabulations is collected biennially.
These tabulations on minim um entrance salaries for inexperienced
women office w orkers; shift differentials; scheduled weekly hours;
paid holidays; paid vacations; and health, insurance, and pension
plans are presented (in the B -s e r ie s tables) in previous bulletins for
this area.

Presented in table 2 are indexes and percentages of change
in average salaries of office c le r ic a l w orkers and industrial nurses,
and in average earnings of selected plant worker groups. The indexes
are a m easure of wages at a given tim e, expressed as a percent of
wages during the base period.
Subtracting 100 from the index yields
the percentage change in wages from the base period to the date of
the index.
The percentages of change or in crease relate to wage
changes between the indicated dates.
Annual rates of in crease, where
shown, reflect the amount of in crease for 12 months when the time
period between surveys was other than 12 months. These computations
were based on the assumption that wages increased at a constant rate
between su rveys.
These estim ates are m easu res of change in aver­
ages for the area; they are not intended to m easure average pay
changes in the establishm ents in the area.

shows the percentage change.
The index is the product of multiplying
the base year relative (100) by the relative for the next succeeding
year and continuing to multiply (compound) each y e a r 's relative by the
previous y e a r 's index.
For office cle rica l w orkers and industrial nurses, the wage
trends relate to regular weekly sa la ries for the norm al workweek,
exclusive of earnings for overtim e.
For plant worker groups, they
m easure changes in average straigh t-tim e hourly earnings, excluding
prem ium pay for overtim e and for work on weekends, holidays, and
late shifts.
The percentages are based on data for selected key occu­
pations and include m ost of the num erically important jobs within
each group.
Limitations of Data

Method of Computing
The indexes and percentages of change, as m easures of
change in area averages, are influenced by:
(1) general salary and
wage changes, (2) m erit or other in creases in pay received by indi­
vidual workers while in the same job, and (3) changes in average
wages due to changes in the labor force resulting from labor turn­
over, force expansions, force reductions, and changes in the propor­
tions of workers employed by establishm ents with different pay lev els.
Changes in the labor force can cause in creases or decreases in the
occupational averages without actual wage changes. It is conceivable
that even though all establishm ents in an area gave wage in creases,
average wages m ay have declined because low er-paying establishments
entered the area or expanded their work fo r c e s.
Sim ilarly, wages
may have remained relatively constant, yet the averages for an area
may have risen considerably because higher-paying establishments
entered the area.

Each of the following key occupations within an occupational
group was assigned a constant weight based on its proportionate e m ­
ployment in the occupational group:
illed maintenance (men):
Office clerical (men and womei l: Office clerical (m en and women)—
Carpenters
Continued
Bookkeeping-machine
Electricians
Secretaries
operators, class B
Machinists
Stenographers, general
Clerks, accounting, classes
Mechanics
Stenographers, senior
A and B
Mechanics (automotive)
Switchboard operators, classes
Clerks, file, classes
Painters
A and B
A , B, and C
Pipefitters
Tabulating-machine operators,
Cleiks, order
Tool and die makers
class B
Clerks, payroll
Typists, classes A and B
Comptometer operators
Unskilled plant (men):
Keypunch operators, classes
Janitors, porters, and cleaners
Industrial nurses (men and women):
A and B
Laborers, material handling
Nurses, industrial (registered)
Office boys and girls

The use of constant employment weights elim inates the effect
of changes in the proportion of workers represented in each job in­
cluded in the data.
The percentages of change reflect only changes
in average pay for straigh t-tim e hours. ' They are ncr influenced by
changes in standard work schedules, as such, or by premium pay
for overtim e.
Where n ecessa ry , data were adjusted to remove from
the indexes and percentages of change any significant effect caused
by changes in the scope of the survey.

The average (mean) earnings for each occupation were m u lti­
plied by the occupational weight, and the products for all occupations
in the group were totaled.
The aggregates for 2 consecutive years
were related by dividing the aggregate for the later year by the aggre­
gate for the ea rlier y ear.
The resultant relative, le ss 100 percent,
