Preface

This bulletin presents estimates of employment,
average hourly and weekly earnings, and weekly hours of
work of nonsupervisory employees in general merchandise.
The survey was part of a broad program of studies initi­
ated by the U. S. Department of Labor for continuing ap­
praisal of Federal minimum-wage legislation.
The June
1961 findings will be used as a basis for measuring changes
in employment, earnings, and hours of work to determine
the economic effects resulting from the 1961 amendments
to the Fair Labor Standards Act, which became effective
in September 1961.
The statistics were obtained from a nationwide
survey of retail trade (excluding eating and drinking places)
conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for a June
1961 payroll period. Data are provided separately for
men and women; the Northeast, South, North Central,
and West regions of the United States; metropolitan and
nonmetropolitan areas; and for retail enterprises and es­
tablishments by their annual volume of sales. Appendix A
provides technical information on the scope and method of
the survey, as well as definitions of terms. A copy of the
questionnaire used in the survey is shown in appendix B.
The Wage and Hour and Public Contracts Divi­
sions participated in the planning of the survey and pro­
vided the necessary funds.
The bulletin was prepared
in the Bureau*s Division of Wages and Industrial Rela­
tions under the general supervision of Herbert Schaffer.
Norman J. Samuels directed the survey and Samuel E.
Cohen and Theodore J. Golonka developed the statistical
and sampling techniques.

Appendix A: Scope and Method of Survey
Scope of Survey
This bulletin relates to those retail establishments which were classified, accord­
ing to the 1957 edition of the Standard Industrial Classification Manual, as part of the gen­
eral merchandise group (SIC 53).
Stores within this group were further identified as de­
partment stores (SIC 531) and limited price variety stores (SIC 533).
The major group
includes retail stores which sell merchandise, such as dry goods, apparel and accessories,
furniture and home furnishings, small wares, hardware, and food.
In addition to depart­
ment, variety, and general merchandise stores, this group includes nonstore operations,
such as m ail-order houses, vending machine operations, and direct selling organizations.
Department stores carry a general line of apparel, home furnishings, major house­
hold appliances, and other lines of merchandise which are normally arranged in separate
sections or departments and integrated under a single management. Typically, employment
in these stores exceeds 25 persons.
Limited price variety stores handle a variety of low- and popular-price merchandise
and are frequently known as "5 and 10 cent" stores and "5 cents to a dollar" stores, a l­
though merchandise is usually sold outside these price ranges.
The 50 States and the District of Columbia are covered.
The data reflect the
earnings and hours of work of nonsupervisory employees for a representative payroll period
ending nearest June 15, 1961.
Sample Design
The sample was designed to yield national and regional estimates for each of the
major kinds of business groups in retail trade and for some specific lines of retail busi­
ness. A stratified sample design was used with variable sampling ratios depending on the
kind of business and employment size of the sample unit.
For example, the sample size
for lines of business shown separately was proportionately larger than for those not pub­
lished and the probability of selection increased with the employment size of the sample unit.
The following tabulation shows the number of units included in the sample of the gen­
eral merchandise group and in the department and limited price variety stores for which
separate data are published:

Establishment samples were obtained from three different sources: (1) State Unem­
ployment Insurance listings furnished by employer reporting units with eight or more em ­
ployees. (2) The large chainstore enterprises provided current lists of retail stores and
auxiliary units from which a sample of such units was selected. It was necessary to obtain
these lists from the large chainstore enterprises because State Unemployment Insurance
listings frequently provide data on a statewide or county basis for such companies rather
than on an individual establishment basis. (3) The Bureau of the Census sample used in con­
junction with its Monthly Survey of Retail Sales covering single-unit retail stores with fewer
than eight employees.
The Census coverage of small units was necessary to supplement
the Bureau*s universe list for retail trade, since State Unemployment Insurance laws in
many States do not cover employers with fewer than four employees.




55

56

Method of Collection
The majority of the establishments included in the sample were solicited for infor­
mation by mail. The largest units were visited in person by field economists of the Bureau
of Labor Statistics, as were the sm allest units by the Bureau of the Census enumerators
acting as agents for the BLS.
Personal visits were also made to a sample of the nonre­
spondents to the mail questionnaire.
Estimating Procedure
Data collected for each sampling unit were weighted in accordance with the proba­
bility of selecting that unit.
For example, where 1 store out of 10 was selected from an
industry-size group, data for that store were considered as representative of the 10 stores
in the group.
Thus, each segment of the retail trade industry was given its appropriate
weight in the total, regardless of the disproportionate coverage of large and small stores.
No assumption has been made that the wage structures of the units not responding
to the mail questionnaire were similar to those of the units responding. To minimize the bias
resulting from nonresponse, data obtained by personal visits from a sample of nonrespond­
ents were weighted to represent all other nonrespondents in similar industry-size groups.
To compensate for schedules with unusable data, their weights were assigned to usable
schedules of the same industry-size group and from the same or related area.
A ll estimated totals derived from the weighting process were further adjusted to
the employment levels for June 1961, as reported in the Bureau of Labor Statistics monthly
employment series.
The published estimates in this report are, thus, consistent with the
production worker employment shown in the monthly series.
Employment estimates for
individual industry groups, which the Bureau does not publish monthly, were prepared e s ­
pecially for purposes of this survey. Current regional estimates, which could not be p re­
pared from the monthly series, were based on regional distributions from the most recent
Census of Business, prepared by the Bureau of the Census.
The adjustment of the survey totals to the predesignated totals was confined, for
the most part, to that segment of the survey for which the sample units were obtained from
State Unemployment Insurance listings. The lists generally were prepared prior to the time
of the survey and consequently do not account for units opened or closed after the date of
the lists.
In the Census and the large chainstore enterprise samples, the best unbiased
estimates of totals were presumed to be the weighted-up sample totals, since there was no
apparent problem of unrepresented business births in these groups.
Criteria for Publication of Estimates
The results of this survey differ from those that would have been obtained by a
complete canvass of all retail operations, since the survey was conducted on a sample basis.
These differences may be substantial in those instances where the sample was small.
It
has not been possible, therefore, to present data for all cases. No earnings distributions
are shown for groupings of fewer than 50 stores, except for department stores where the
sample included most of the large stores in the universe.
Definitions of Terms
Nonsupervisory employees include all full-tim e, part-tim e, seasonal, and casual
employees below the supervisory level, such as salespersons, shipping, receiving, and stock
clerks, laborers, warehousemen, caretakers, office clerks, driver-salesm en, deliverymen,
installation and repairmen, elevator operators, porters, janitors, food service employees,
and working supervisors.
Establishment is generally defined as a single physical location where business is
conducted.
In the case of two separate business entities transacting business at a single
physical location (for example, a leased shoe department in a department store), each was
treated as a separate establishment. On the other hand, a drug store which also operated
a food counter was treated as a single establishment.




57

Enterprise.
Establishments were considered to be part of a larger enterprise if
owned by a company operating other establishments engaged in the same general field of
business and under its general direction or control. The terms "en terp rise" and "estab lish ­
ment" were used synonymously for single-unit companies.
Annual volume of sales excludes excise taxes at the retail level.
Earnings data relate to straight-time earnings and exclude premium pay for over­
time and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts.
Commission and bonus earn­
ings and special sales bonuses, such as " P . M . ’ s " and "s tim s " paid quarterly or oftener,
are included.
Individual average hourly earnings for employees not paid by the hour (e. g. , salary,
commissions) were obtained by dividing individual earnings reported by the number of hours
worked during the corresponding period.
Individual weekly earnings were obtained by multiplying the individual average hourly
earnings by the number of hours worked during a single week in June 1961.
Group average hourly earnings published in this report were obtained by dividing
total individual earnings by total individual weekly hours worked.
Group average weekly earnings were obtained by dividing the sum of the individual
weekly earnings by tlie number of employees represented in the group total.
Regions used in this study include the following States: Northeast— Connecticut,
Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island,
and Vermont; South— Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia,
Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, M ississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina,
Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia; North Central— Illinois, Indiana, Iowa,
Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, M issouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and
Wisconsin; and West— Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana,
Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
Metropolitan areas as used in this report refers to those cities and county areas
defined by the Bureau of the Budget as "Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas. " M etro­
politan areas include those counties containing at least one central city of 50, 000 population
and those counties around such cities which are metropolitan in character and economically
and socially integrated with the county containing the central city.
For a more detailed
description, see Standard Metropolitan Statistical A re a s, prepared by the Bureau of the
Budget, 1961.
