Preface
This bulletin presents in tabular form data on a key statistical series of the Bureau
o f Labor Statistics, the Hourly Earnings Index. The series was first published in 1971
and has attracted wide attention as being the best available measure o f wage-rate
change. Data in current dollars are presented in tables 1 through 12, covering the
private nonfarm economy and various industrial sectors. Data in constant (1967)
dollars are presented for the private nonfarm economy in table 13.
This bulletin was prepared in the Bureau’s Division o f Trends in Employee Com­
pensation by Charles R. Heflin.

Introduction
This bulletin presents historical data for one o f the
Bureau’s key econom ic indicators, the Hourly Earnings
Index. This series, which was first published in 1971, is
derived from basic hourly earnings data that are developed
from payroll information supplied by a representative
panel o f industrial and commercial establishments to
State agencies participating in the Current Employment
Statistics Program.1 In computing the Hourly Earnings
Index, basic average hourly earnings are adjusted to exclude
the effects o f two types o f changes that are unrelated to
underlying wage-rate developments: Fluctuations in over­
time premiums in manufacturing (the only sector for
which overtime data are available) and the effects o f changes
in the proportion o f workers in high-wage and low-wage
industries. In addition, seasonal adjustment factors are
applied to eliminate the effect o f changes that normally
occur at the same time and in about the same magnitude
each year. After these adjustments are made, the index
more closely reflects underlying wage-rate movements
than do other available monthly measures.
The Hourly Earnings Index has the advantage o f being
both timely and comprehensive in industry detail. How­
ever, it also has certain shortcomings. For example, the
index provides no occupational or regional detail; it is
not adjusted for the influence o f overtime premium pay in
the nonmanufacturing sector, which encompasses twothirds o f the employment; it is restricted to the earnings o f
production and nonsupervisory employees in the private
nonfarm econom y; and wage supplements, obviously,
are excluded. Furthermore, although employment shifts
among 3-digit industries2 are eliminated, shifts within
these groups (i.e., at the 4-digit level) affect the data
as do employment shifts within establishments.
The index is constructed by weighting the average
hourly earnings in each industry (essentially at the 3-




digit level o f detail) by the hours paid for in that industry
in 1967. (Appendix A presents the industry weights used
to construct the index.) The weighted average for a given
month is then compared with the average for

1967.

Data are available monthly starting with January 1964
in both current and deflated (1 9 6 7 ) dollars for the private
nonfarm econom y and for seven broad industry divisions:
mining; contract construction; manufacturing; transpor­
tation and public utilities; wholesale and retail trade;
finance, insurance, and real estate; and services. (Sub­
categories under manufacturing include indexes for durable
and nondurable goods, and indexes are also presented
for the wholesale trade and retail trade industries sep­
arately.) For the manufacturing sector as a whole, monthly
data are available back to 1947; for its subdivisions, back
to 1959. (See appendix B for m ethodology for these
earlier years.)
Data are published in a variety o f periodicals, including
Current Wage Developments and the Monthly Labor
Review. Initial presentation appears in the Bureau’s monthly
release entitled, The Employment Situation.
The following tables present unadjusted monthly data
and annual averages, seasonal factors, seasonally adjusted
data, and quarterly averages o f the seasonally adjusted
data. In addition, annual rates o f change for the various
series are presented from the previous quarter, from the
same quarter a year earlier, from 6 months earlier, and
12 months earlier.

Current hourly earnings data, in available industry detail,
are published in the Bureau’s m onthly report, E m p lo ym en t and
Earnings. Historical data will appear in E m p lo ym en t and Earnings,
United States, 1 9 0 9 -7 5 , Bulletin 1 3 1 2 -1 0 , 1 9 7 6 . (Bureau o f Labor

As defined in the Standard Industrial Classification Manual.

Caution
P erio d ic a lly , the Bureau adjusts its industry em ployment se r ie s to a recent benchmark to im ­
prove its a ccu racy . These adjustm ents m ay affect basic hourly earnings data because em ploym ent levels
are used as w eights. T h erefo re , the Hourly Earnings Index data for periods after M arch 1974, the
present benchmark date, are subject to revisio n . In future editions of the p resen t publication, the
s e r ie s w ill be adjusted to new benchmark le v e ls.
In addition, seasonally adjusted data for the period beginning in 1971 are subject to revision after
annual recom putations of seasonal adjustment fa c to rs.

N O TE : SIC 99, nonclassifiable establishments, excluded because of lack of data.

Appendix B. Method of Index Construction for Manufacturing
Sector for Period Before 1964
These indexes for 1959 through 1963 were compiled by
assigning constant weights, based upon 1966 production
employment, to the earnings figures for these workers
excluding overtime premium pay for each (3 -digit SIC)
industry. Industry classification was based on the 1967
Standard Industrial Qassification Manual Data were not
available for all 3-digit industries before 1959. Hence,
indexes for earlier years were compiled by assigning
constant (hours) weights to the earnings figures excluding
overtime premium pay for each major industry (2-digit SIC)




group, except for two industry groups (transportation
equipment and electrical machinery). These two groups
had separate constant weights assigned in several important
3-digit SIC industries. These indexes exclude the effects
o f shifts among major

(2-digit level)

industry groups,

but are affected by any shifts among industries within
these groups. Industry classification was based on the
1945 Standard Industrial Classification Manual and the
weights were average 1954 production hours.
