Preface
The Bureau of Labor Statistics conducted a survey
of retail general merchandise stores for a June 1965 payroll
period.
Data on employment, average hourly and weekly
earnings, and weekly hours of work of nonsupervisory em ­
ployees were obtained and are presented in this bulletin.
This information bridges the period since June 1962, when
a sim ilar survey was conducted.
(See Employee Earnings
in Retail General Merchandise Stores, June 1962, BLS
Bulletin 1380-2.) Data are provided for the United States;
the Northeast, South, North Central, and West regions;
metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas; men and women;
and retail enterprises and establishments by annual volume
of sales.
A bulletin containing comprehensive statistical
data for the entire retail trade industry (except eating and
drinking places) will be available.
Data for each of the
major retail groups which retail trade comprises, and for
selected lines of retail business, will be available in the
individual bulletins which are listed on the inside back
cover.
The survey was part of a broad program of studies
initiated by the U .S . Department of L a b o r’s Wage and Hour
and Public Contracts Divisions for continuing appraisal of
Federal legislation relating to minimum wages and m axi­
mum hours standards. In this connection, data from the
survey were published in the Report Submitted to the Con­
gress in Accordance With the Requirements of Section 4(d)
of the F air Labor Standards Act - January 1966.
The study was conducted in the Bureau1 Division
s
of National Wage and Salary Income by Norman J. Samuels,
Chief of the Division, under the general direction of
L. R. Linsenmayer, Assistant Commissioner, Office of
Wages and Industrial Relations.
This bulletin was p re­
pared under the supervision of Alvin Bauman.

This study is designed to provide information on hourly earnings and weekly hours of work for both male and
female nonsupervisory employees and working supervisors for a payroll period including June 12, 1965.
The number of employees in each establishment for which earnings and hours data are reported should corre­
spond with the number of nonsupervisory employees shown in item 3(c) on page 1. The information requested
should be reported separately for each establishment and the establishment identified. Earnings data for food
counter, cafeteria, or restaurant workers in Department, Drug, or Variety Stores should be entered only on the
blue supplement provided. Data for all other employees should be reported in Item 5 of this form.
Report earnings and hours separately for each employee unless these data are identical for two or more em­
ployees. Do not report aggregate earnings and hours for several employees. For convenience of reporting for
employees paid on other than an hourly basis, columns 5 through 8 are provided. Data will not, however, be
published separately by various methods of pay. Instructions and examples for reporting the necessary data in
each column are listed below.
