1 The St. Louis Standard M etropolitan S tatistical A rea, as defined by the Bureau of the Budget through January 1968, con sists of the city of
St. L ou is; the counties o f Franklin, J e ffe rso n , St. C harles, and St. L ouis, M o.;
and the counties of M adison and St.C la ir, 111. The "w o rk e rs within
scop e of study" estim ates shown in this table provid e a reasonably accu rate descrip tion of the size and com p osition of the labor fo r c e included in
the survey. The estim ates are not intended, how ever, to serve as a b asis of com p a rison with other em ploym ent indexes fo r the area to m easure
em ploym ent trends or lev els sin ce (1) planning of wage surveys requires the
use of establishm ent data com p iled con sid era b ly in advance of the
p a yroll p eriod studied, and (2) sm all establishm ents are excluded from the scope of the survey.
2 The 1967 edition of the Standard Industrial C la ssifica tion Manual was used in cla ssifyin g establishm ents by industry division.
3 Includes all establishm ents with total em ploym ent at or above the m inimum lim itation. A ll outlets (within the area) of com panies in such
industries as trade, finance, auto repair s e rv ice , and m otion picture theaters are con sid ered as 1 establishm ent.
4 Includes all w ork ers in all establishm ents with total em ploym ent (within the area) at or above the m inimum lim itation.
5 T axicabs and s e r v ic e s incidental to water transportation w ere excluded.
* This industry division is represented in estim ates fo r "all in d u stries" and "nonm anufacturing" in the S eries A tables. Separate presentation
of data fo r this division is not made fo r one or m ore of the follow ing reasons: (1) Employment in the division is too sm all to provide enough data
to m erit separate study, (2) the sam ple was not designed initially to perm it separate presentation, (3) response was insufficient or inadequate to
p erm it separate p resentation, and (4) there is p o ssib ility of d isclo s u re of individual establishm ent data.

Appendix. Occupational Descriptions
The prim ary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau's wage surveys is to a ssist its field staff in classifying into appropriate
occupations w orkers who are employed under a variety of payroll titles and different work arrangements from establishment 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 establishments or those prepared for other purposes.
In applying these job descriptions, the Bureau's field econom ists are instructed
to exclude working supervisors; apprentices; learners; beginners; trainees; and handicapped, p art-tim e, tem porary, and probationary w orkers.

OFFICE
CLERK, FILE

BILLER, MACHINE

Class A . In an established filing system containing a number of varied subject matter
file s , cla ssifie s and indexes file m aterial such as correspondence, reports, technical docu­
ments, etc. May also file this m aterial. May keep record s of various types in conjunction
with the file s . May lead a small group of lower level file clerks.

P repares statements, b ills, and invoices on a machine other than an ordinary or e le ctro m atic typew riter. May also keep record s as to billings or shipping charges or p erform other
cle rica l work incidental to billing operations. For wage study purposes, b ille rs , machine, are
cla ssified by type of machine, as follow s:
B iller, machine (billing m achine). Uses a special billing machine (Moon Hopkins, Elliott
F ish er, Burroughs, etc., which are combination typing and adding machines) to prepare bills
and invoices from cu stom ers' purchase ord ers, internally prepared o rd ers, shipping m em o­
randums, etc. Usually involves application of predeterm ined discounts and shipping charges,
and entry of necessary extensions, which may or may not be computed on the billing machine,
and totals which are autom atically accumulated by machine. The operation usually involves
a large number of carbon copies of the bill being prepared and is often done on a fanfold
machine.
B iller, machine (bookkeeping machine). Uses a bookkeeping machine (Sundstrand, Elliott
F ish er, Remington Rand, etc., which may or may not have typewriter keyboard) to prepare
cu stom ers' bills as part of the accounts receivable operation. Generally involves t,he sim ulta­
neous entry of figures on cu stom ers' ledger record . The machine automatically accumulates
figures on a number of vertical columns and com putes, and usually prints autom atically the
debit or credit balances. Does not involve a knowledge of bookkeeping. Works from uniform

program .

Converts statements of business prob lem 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
p rocessin g equipment. Working from charts or diagram s, the p rogram er develops the p recise
instructions which, when entered into the com puter system in coded language, cause the manipu­
lation of data to achieve d esired results. Work involves m ost of the follow ing: Applies knowledge
of computer capabilities, m athem atics, lo g ic em ployed by com puters, and particular subject matter
involved to analyze charts and diagram s of the problem to be program ed. Develops sequence
of p rogram steps, w rites detailed flow charts to show order in which data w ill be p rocessed ;
