Scope and Method
of Survey
In each o f the 72 1 areas cu rren tly surveyed, the Bureau obtains
w ages and re la te d ben efits data fro m rep resen ta tive establishm ents within
six broad indu stry d ivisio n s: M anufacturing; transportation, com m unication,
and oth er public u tilitie s ; w h olesa le trad e; 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 re s c rib e d num ber o f w o rk e rs are also excluded because o f in su fficien t
em ploym ent 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 o f this
su rvey , as w e ll as the num ber actually studied.
Bureau fie ld re p re s e n ta tiv e s obtain data by person al v is its at 3 -y e a r
in te rv a ls . In each o f the tw o in terven in g y e a rs , in form ation on em ploym ent
and occupational earn in gs only is c o llected by a com bination of person 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

additional w eigh t is assign ed to a sam ple m em ber 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 . In addition, the Bureau conducts more limited
area studies in approximately 100 areas at the request of the Employment Standards Administration of the
U. S. Department of Labor.




Occupations and earnings
Occupations selected fo r study are common to a va riety of manufac­
turing and nonmanufacturing in du stries, and are of the follow ing types: ( 1 )
O ffic e 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
c la ssifica tio n is based on a uniform set o f job descriptions designed to take
account o f interestablishm ent variation 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 som e of the occupations
lis te d 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 provid e enough data to m erit p resen ­
tation, o r ( 2 ) th ere is p o ssib ility o f 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 o r 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 a ll 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 b classify 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 p rem iu m pay fo r overtim e and fo r w ork on weekends, holidays,
and late shifts.
Nonproduction bonuses are excluded, but c o st-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 r e fe r to the standard
w orkw eek (rounded to the n earest half hour) fo r which em ployees receive
reg u la r stra igh t-tim e s a la rie s (exclu sive of pay fo r overtim e at regular
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 half d ollar. V e r tic a l lines within the distribution
o f w o rk ers on some A -ta b les indicate a change in the size of the class
in terva ls.
These surveys m easure the le v e l o f 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 r e 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,
p roportion s of 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 e rs at lo w e r rates. Such shifts in em ploym ent could decrease an
occupational avera ge 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 earnings r e fle c t com p osite, areaw ide estim ates. Industries
and establishm ents d iffe r in pay le v e l and job staffin g, and thus contribute
d ifferen tly to the estim ates fo r each job.
Pay a vera ges m ay fa il to re fle c t
accurately the w age d iffe re n tia l among jobs in individual establishm ents.
A v e ra g e pay le v e ls fo r men and women in selected occupations
should not be assum ed to re fle c t d ifferen ces in pay o f the sexes within
individual establishm ents.
F a cto rs which may contribute to d ifferen ces
include p ro g re s s io n within established rate ranges (on ly the rates paid
incumbents a re collected ) and p erfo rm a n ce of sp ecific duties within the
gen eral su rvey job descrip tion s. Job description s used to c la s s ify em ployees
in these su rveys usually a re m o re g en era lized than those used in individual
establishm ents and allow fo r m in or d iffe re n c e s among establishm ents in
sp ecific duties p e rfo rm ed .
Occupational em ploym ent estim ates rep resen t the tota l in a ll e s ta b ­
lishm ents within the scope o f the study and not the number actually surveyed.
Because occupational structures among establishm ents d iffe r , estim ates o f
occupational em ploym ent obtained fro m the sam ple o f establishm ents studied
s e rve only to indicate the re la tiv e im portance o f the jobs studied.
These
d ifferen ces in occupational stru ctu re do not affect m a te ria lly the accu racy of
the earnings data.

P ercen t changes fo r individual areas in the p ro gra m a re computed
as fo llo w s:
1. A v e ra g e earnings a re computed fo r each occupation fo r
the 2 years being com pared. The a vera g es a re d erived
from earnings in those establishm ents which a re in the
survey both years; it is assumed that em ploym ent
rem ains unchanged.
2.

Each occupation is assigned a weight based on its
proportionate em ploym ent in the occupational group in
the base year.

3. These weights are used to compute group a vera g es.
Each occupation's a verage earnings (com puted in step 1)
is m ultiplied by its w eight.
The products a re totaled
to obtain a group average.
The ratio o f group averages fo r 2 consecu tive years is
computed by dividing the a v e ra g e fo r the current year
by the average fo r the e a r lie r y e a r.
The result—
expressed as a percent— le s s 100 is the percen t change.

F o r a m ore detailed d escrip tion o f the method used to compute
these w age trends
see "Im p rovin g A r e a W age Survey In d e x e s ," Monthly
Lab or R e v ie w , January 1973, pp. 52-57.
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.
These re la tiv e values re fle c t d ifferen ces in pay between occupations w ithin
individual establishm ents. R ela tive pay values a re computed by dividing an
establishm ent's a verage earnings fo r an occupation being com pared by the
avera ge for another occupation (designated as 100) and m u ltiplying the
quotient by 100. F o r exam ple, if ja n ito rs in a fir m a vera g e $4 an hour and
fo rk lift operators $5, fo rk lift o p era to rs have a r e la tiv e pay value o f 125
com pared with jan itors. ($5 -f- $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 percen t changes rela te to wage changes between the indicated
dates. When the tim e span between su rveys is other than 12 months, annual
rates a re also shown. (It is assum ed that wages in crea se at a constant
rate between su rveys.)

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 meet only the legal requirements are excluded from these data, but those
under which (1) employers contribute more than is legally required or (2) benefits exceed those specified in the
State law are included. In Rhode Island, benefits are paid out of a State fund to which only employees
contribute. In each of die other three States, benefits are paid either from a State fund or through a private plan.
State fund financing: In California, only employees contribute to the State fund; in New Jersey,
employees and employers contribute; in New York, employees contribute up to a specified maximum
and employers pay the difference between the employees' share and the total contribution required.
Private plan financing: In California and New Jersey, employees cannot be required to contribute
more than they would if they were covered by the State fund; in New York, employees can agree
to contribute more if the State rules that the additional contribution is commensurate with the
benefit provided.
Federal legislation ( Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act) provides temporary disability insurance benefits
to railroad woikeis for illness or injury, whether work-connected or not. The legislation requires that employers
bear the entire cost of the insurance.

L ife insurance includes fo rm a l plains provid in g indem nity (usually

allowances determined on an individual basis are excluded.

1 Th e St. Louis Standard Metropolitan Statistical A re a, as defined by the Office of Management
and Budget through F e b ru a ry 1974, consists of St. Louis city; F ranklin, Jefferson, St. Charles,
and St. Louis Counties, M o.; and Clinton, Madison, Monroe, and St. C la ir Counties, 111. The
"w ork ers within scope of study" estimates provide a reasonably accurate description of the size
and composition of the labor force included in the survey. Estimates are not intended, however,
for com parison with other statistical series to measure employment trends or levels since (1)
planning of wage surveys requires establishment data compiled considerably in advance of the
payroll period studied, and (2) sm all establishments are excluded from the scope of the survey.
2 The 1972 edition of the Standard Industrial Classification Manual was used to classify
establishments by industry division^ A ll government operations are excluded from the scope of
the survey.
3 Includes a ll establishments with total employment at or above the m inim um lim itation. A ll
outlets (w ithin the area) of companies in industries such as trade, finance, auto repair service,
and motion picture theaters are considered as one establishment.

5 Abbreviated to "public utilities" in the A - and B -s e rie s tables. Taxicabs and services
incidental to water transportation are excluded.
6 Separate data for this division are not presented in the A - and B -s e rie s tables, but the
division is represented in the " a ll industries" and "nonmanufacturing" estimates.
7 Hotels and m otels, laundries and other personal services; business services; automobile
