Preface
This bulletin presents estimates of employment,
average hourly and weekly earnings, and weekly hours of
work of nonsupervisory employees in retail general m er­
chandise stores in June 1962. This survey supplements a
similar study conducted in June 1961. This bulletin pro­
vides data on changes in earnings and hours of work be­
tween the survey periods, during which time the 1961
amendments to the Fair Labor Standards Act that estab­
lished a $1 minimum wage for employees in large retail
enterprises became effective. The survey was part of a
broad program of studies initiated by the U. S. Department
of Labor for continuing appraisal of Federal minimum
wage legislation.
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
1962 payroll period.
Data are provided separately for
men and women; four regions of the United States—
Northeast, South, North Central, and West; metropolitan
and nonmetropolitan areas; and for retail general m er­
chandise enterprises and establishments by their annual
volume of sales. Appendix A provides technical informa­
tion 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.
A bulletin containing comprehensive statistical
data for the entire retail trade industry (except eating and
drinking places) is available. Separate bulletins providing
data for each of the other major retail groups comprising
retail trade will also be issued. (See inside back cover.)
The Wage and Hour and Public Contracts Divisions
participated in the planning of the survey and provided the
necessary funds. This study was conducted in the Bureau1 s
Division of National Wage and Salary Income by Norman J.
Samuels, Chief of the Division, under the general direction
of L. R. Linsenmayer, Assistant Commissioner for Wages
and Industrial Relations.
The analysis was prepared by
Alvin Bauman, Joseph K. Cocco, and Ira S. Metzman,
under the immediate supervision of Herbert Schaffer.

Appendix A: Scope and Method of Survey
Scope o f Survey
This bulletin relates to those retail establishm ents which w ere cla ssified , according to
the 1957 edition o f the Standard Industrial C lassification Manual, as part o f the general m e r ­
chandise group (SIC 53jl
Stores within this group w ere further identified as department
stores (SIC 531) and lim ited p rice variety stores (SIC 533). The m ajor group includes retail
stores which se ll m erchandise, such as dry goods, apparel and a c c e s s o rie s , furniture and
home furnishings, sm all w ares, hardw are, and food.
In addition to department, variety,
and general m erchandise sto re s, this group includes nonstore operations, such as m a il­
ord er houses, vending m achine operations, and d irect selling organizations.
Department stores ca rry a general line of apparel, home furnishings, m ajor house­
hold appliances, and other lines of m erchandise which are norm ally arranged in separate
sections or departm ents and integrated under a single management. Typically, employment
in these stores exceeds 25 p erson s.
Lim ited p r ic e variety stores handle a variety of low - and p op u la r-p rice m erchandise
and are frequently known as M and 10 cent1 stores and M cents to a d o lla r1 stores, although
5
1
5
'
m erchandise is usually sold outside these p r ice ranges.
The 50 States and the D istrict of Columbia are covered in the survey.
The data
re fle ct the earnings and hours o f w ork o f nonsupervisory em ployees fo r a representative
p ay roll period ending n earest June 15, 1962.
Sample Design
The sam ple was designed to yield, national and regional estim ates for each of the
m a jor kinds o f business groups in retail trade and for som e sp ecific lines o f retail business.
A stratified sam ple design was used with variable sampling ratios depending on the kind of
business and em ploym ent size o f the sam ple unit. F or example, the sam ple size for lines
o f business shown separately was proportionately la rger than for those not published and the
probability of selection in crea sed with the employment size of the sam ple unit.
The follow ing tabulation shows the number of units included in the sam ple of the
general m erchandise group and in the department and lim ited p rice variety stores for which
separate data are published.

Establishm ent sam ples w ere obtained from three different sou rces: (1) State unem­
ploym ent insurance listings furnished em ployer reporting units with eight o r m ore em ­
p loyees.
(2) The large chains tore enterprises provided current lists o f retail stores and
auxiliary units from which a sam ple o f such units was selected. It was n ecessa ry 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 com panies rather
than on an individual establishm ent basis.
(3) The Bureau of the Census sam ple used in
conjunction with its Monthly Survey of Retail Sales covering single-unit retail stores with
few er than eight em ployees. The Census coverage of sm all units was n e ce ssa ry to supple­
ment the Bureau's universe list for retail trade, since State unemployment insurance laws
in many States do not co v e r em ployers with few er than four em ployees.



71

72
Method of C ollection
The m ajority of the establishm ents included in the sam ple w ere solicited for in form a ­
tion by m ail. The largest units w ere visited in person by field econom ists of the Bureau o f
Labor Statistics, as w ere the sm allest units by the Bureau of the Census enum erators acting
as agents fo r the BLS.
P erson a l visits w ere also made to a sam ple of the nonrespondents
to the m ail questionnaire.
Estimating P rocedu re
Data collected for each sampling unit w ere weighted in accordance with the p rob a ­
bility of selecting that unit.
F or exam ple, where 1 store out of 10 was selected from an
in d u stry -size group, data fo r that store w ere considered as representative of the 10 stores
in the group.
Thus, each segm ent of the retail trade industry was given its appropriate
weight in the total, regardless o f the disproportionate coverage of large and sm all stores.
No assum ption has been made that the wage structures of the units not responding
to the m ail questionnaire w ere sim ilar to those of the units responding.
To m inim ize the
bias resulting from nonresponse, data obtained by personal visits from a sam ple of non­
respondents w ere weighted to represent all other nonrespondents in sim ila r in du stry-size
groups.
To com pensate fo r schedules with unusable data, their weights w ere assigned to
usuable schedules of the sam e in d u stry -size group and from the same o r related area.
A ll estim ated totals derived from the weighting p ro ce ss w ere further adjusted to the
employment levels for June 1962 as reported in the Bureau o f Labor Statistics monthly em ­
ploym ent se r ie s . The published estim ates in this report are, thus, consistent with the p r o ­
duction w orker em ploym ent shown in the monthly se rie s. Employment estim ates for individ­
ual industry groups, which the Bureau does not publish monthly, w ere prepared esp ecially
for purposes o f this survey. Current regional estim ates, which could not be prepared from
the monthly se r ie s , w ere based on regional distributions from the m ost recent Census of
B u sin ess, prepared by the Bureau of the Census.
The adjustment of the survey totals to the predesignated totals for June 1962 was
confined, for the m ost part, to that segment of the survey for which the sam ple units w ere
obtained from State unemployment insurance listings. The lists generally w ere prepared p rio r
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 sam ples, the best
unbiased estim ates of totals w ere presum ed to be the weighted-up sample totals, since there
was no apparent problem of unrepresented business births in these groups.
C riteria for Publication of Estim ates
The results of this survey differ from those that would have been obtained by a c o m ­
plete canvass of all retail operations, since the survey was conducted on a sam ple basis.
These differen ces may be substantial in those instances where the sample was sm all.
It
has not been p ossib le, th erefore, to present data for all ca ses. No earnings distributions
are shown for groupings of few er than 50 stores, except for department stores where the
sam ple included m ost of the large stores in the universe.
Definitions of Term s
N onsupervisory em ployees include all fu ll-tim e, p a rt-tim e, seasonal, and casual
em ployees below the su p ervisory level, such as salesp erson s, shipping, receiving, and stock
c le rk s, la b orers, w arehousem en, caretak ers, o ffice clerk s, d riv er-sa lesm en , deliverym en,
installation and repairm en, elevator operators, p orters, jan itors, food s e rv ice em ployees,
and working su p ervisors.
Establishm ent 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
ph ysical location (for exam ple, a leased shoe department in a department store), each was
treated as a separate establishm ent. On the other hand, a drug store which also operated
a food counter was treated as a single establishm ent.



73
E n terp rise.
Establishm ents w ere considered to be part of a la rger enterprise if
owned by a com pany operating other establishments engaged in the same general field of
business and under its general d irection o r control.
The term s "en te rp rise " and "esta b lishm ent1 w ere used synonym ously for single-unit com panies.
1
Annual volum e o f sales excludes ex cise taxes at the retail level.
Earnings data relate to straigh t-tim e earnings and exclude prem ium pay for o v e r ­
time and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts.
C om m ission and bonus earn ­
ings and sp ecia l sales bonuses, such as "P .M . , s" and "s tim s " paid quarterly or oftener,
are included.
Individual average hourly earnings fo r em ployees not paid by the hour (e< g. , salary,
com m ission s) w ere obtained by dividing individual earnings reported by the number of hours
worked during the corresponding period.
Individual weekly earnings when not reported w ere obtained by multiplying the in ­
dividual average hourly earnings by the number of hours worked during a single week in
June 1962.
Group average hourly earnings published in this report w ere obtained by dividing
