Overview
The National Compensation Survey (NCS) provides comprehensive measures of
occupational earnings, compensation cost trends, benefit incidence, and detailed benefit
provisions. This bulletin presents estimates of occupational pay in the Middle Atlantic
Census Division. These estimates are based on data collected from a sample of
establishments within sampled localities in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania and
are weighted to represent the Division as a whole. (See Appendix C for a list of the survey

areas.) The estimates include pay for workers in major sectors of the U.S. economy in
2009–the civilian, private, and State and local government sectors–and by various
occupational and establishment characteristics. The civilian sector, by NCS definition,
excludes Federal government, agricultural, and household workers.
Questions regarding these data and recent and historical NCS wage data can be
addressed by calling the information line at (202) 691-6199 or by emailing to
NCSInfo@bls.gov. Information is available to sensory-impaired individuals on request,
(Voice phone: (202) 691-5200; Federal Relay Service: 1 (800) 877-8339). Data requests
also may be sent by mail to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Division of Compensation
Data Analysis and Planning, 2 Massachusetts Avenue, NE, Room 4175, Washington, DC
20212. Material in this publication is in the public domain and, with appropriate credit,
may be reproduced without permission.
U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) field economists collected and reviewed the survey
data. The Office of Compensation and Working Conditions, in cooperation with the Office
of Field Operations and the Office of Technology and Survey Processing, designed the
survey, processed the data, and prepared the survey for publication. The survey could
not have been conducted without the cooperation of the many private businesses and
government jurisdictions that provided pay data included in this report. BLS thanks these
respondents for their cooperation.

Occupational earnings tables: Middle Atlantic Census
Division, December 2008 – January 2010 (average
reference date July 2009)
The 2009 NCS Middle Atlantic Census Division bulletin includes occupational earnings
tables 1-21; relative standard errors of the estimates for tables 11-13, 15-17, and 19-21;
and appendix tables 1 and 2. The relative standard error tables are titled and numbered
to correspond to their respective earnings-estimates tables. Appendix tables 1 and 2 are
part of Appendix A.

Summary table. Table 1 presents an overview of data reported in this bulletin. Mean
hourly earnings, weekly hours, and relative standard errors are given for civilian, private
industry, and State and local government workers by selected worker and establishment
characteristics. Worker characteristics include high-level and intermediate occupational
aggregation, full-time and part-time status, union and nonunion status, and time and
incentive pay status. Establishment characteristics include goods producing, service
providing, and size of establishment.


Table 1. Summary: Mean hourly earnings and weekly hours for selected worker and
establishment characteristics.

Work levels. Work levels are standardized measures of duties and responsibilities that
apply to all occupations. The NCS designates 15 work levels; level 1 is the lowest and
level 15 is the highest. Tables 2 through 4 present average wages by work level. Table 5
shows average wages by combined work levels. (For more information on how work
levels are determined, see Appendix A.)

Table 5. Combined work levels for civilian workers: Mean hourly earnings for full-time
and part-time workers.

Percentiles. Percentiles designate position in the earnings distribution and are calculated
from individual worker earnings and the hours those workers are scheduled to work.
Tables 6 through 10 provide estimates on the mean hourly wage for the 10th percentile,
the 25th percentile, the 50th percentile (or median), the 75th percentile, and the 90th
percentile of occupational wages, by ownership sector and for full- and part-time workers

within these sectors.

Full-time workers. Employees are classified as full time or part time on the basis of
definitions used by each establishment. Tables 2 through 5 provide mean hourly earnings
estimates for full-time and part-time workers by occupational group for the civilian
sector, State and local government, and private industry, by work level. Tables 11
through 13 provide occupational mean and median hourly, weekly, and annual earnings
estimates, as well as mean weekly and annual hours worked, by ownership sector.

Size of establishment. Estimates of mean hourly earnings for workers in major
occupational groups by size of private industry establishment—1-49 workers, 50-99
workers, 100-499 workers, and 500 or more workers—are shown in table 14. Tables 15
and 16 show estimates of mean and median hourly, weekly, and annual earnings and
mean weekly and annual hours for detailed occupations of full-time private industry
workers in establishments with fewer than 100 workers and for those in establishments
with 100 workers or more, respectively.

hourly, weekly, and annual earnings and mean weekly and annual hours by occupation
for full-time workers.

Union and nonunion workers. Union workers are workers whose wages are
determined through collective bargaining. Table 17 provides mean hourly earnings of
union and nonunion workers in the civilian sector as a whole, State and local government,
and private industry, by major occupational group. (For more information on union
workers, see Appendix A.)


Table 17. Union and nonunion workers: Mean hourly earnings by ownership and major
occupational group.

Time and incentive workers. Time workers are workers whose wages are based solely
on an hourly rate or salary. Incentive workers are workers whose wages are based at
least partially on productivity payments, such piece rates, commissions, and production
bonuses. Table 18 provides hourly earnings estimates for workers in the civilian and
private sectors who are paid on a time or an incentive basis.


Establishment characteristics

1 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.
2 The relative standard error (RSE) is the standard error expressed as a percent of
the estimate. It can be used to calculate a "confidence interval" around a sample
estimate. For more information about RSEs, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook of
Methods, at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm.
3 Mean weekly hours are the hours an employee is scheduled to work in a week,
exclusive of overtime.
4 Employees are classified as working either a full-time or a part-time schedule
based on the definition used by each establishment. Union workers are those whose
earnings are determined through collective bargaining. Earnings of time workers are
based solely on hourly rate or salary; incentive workers are those whose earnings are

at least partially based on productivity payments such as piece rates, commissions,
and production bonuses. For more information, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook of
Methods, at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm.
5 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
6 Estimates for goods-producing and service-providing industries are published
for private industry only. The NCS uses the 2007 North American Industry
Classification System (NAICS) to determine the industry of each sampled
establishment.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria.

1 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.
2 Employees are classified as working either a full-time or a part-time schedule
based on the definition used by each establishment. Therefore, a worker with a
35-hour-per-week schedule might be considered a full-time employee in one
establishment, but classified as part-time in another firm, where a 40-hour week is the
minimum full-time schedule.
3 Each occupation for which data are collected in an establishment is evaluated
based on four factors, including knowledge, job controls and complexity, contacts,
and physical environment. For more information, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook

of Methods, at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm.
4 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
5 The relative standard error (RSE) is the standard error expressed as a percent of
the estimate. It can be used to calculate a "confidence interval" around a sample
estimate. For more information about RSEs, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook of
Methods, at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

1 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.
2 Employees are classified as working either a full-time or a part-time schedule
based on the definition used by each establishment. Therefore, a worker with a
35-hour-per-week schedule might be considered a full-time employee in one
establishment, but classified as part-time in another firm, where a 40-hour week is the
minimum full-time schedule.
3 Each occupation for which data are collected in an establishment is evaluated
based on four factors, including knowledge, job controls and complexity, contacts,
and physical environment. For more information, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook

4 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
5 The relative standard error (RSE) is the standard error expressed as a percent of
the estimate. It can be used to calculate a "confidence interval" around a sample
estimate. For more information about RSEs, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook of
Methods, at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

1 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.
2 Employees are classified as working either a full-time or a part-time schedule
based on the definition used by each establishment. Therefore, a worker with a
35-hour-per-week schedule might be considered a full-time employee in one
establishment, but classified as part-time in another firm, where a 40-hour week is the
minimum full-time schedule.
3 Each occupation for which data are collected in an establishment is evaluated
based on four factors, including knowledge, job controls and complexity, contacts,
and physical environment. For more information, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook

of Methods, at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm.
4 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
5 The relative standard error (RSE) is the standard error expressed as a percent of
the estimate. It can be used to calculate a "confidence interval" around a sample
estimate. For more information about RSEs, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook of
Methods, at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

1 Each occupation for which data are collected in an establishment is evaluated
based on four factors, including knowledge, job controls and complexity, contacts,
and physical environment. Combined work levels simplify the presentation of work
levels by combining levels 1 through 15 into four broad groups. Group I combines
levels 1-4, group II combines levels 5-8, group III combines levels 9-12, and group IV
combines levels 13-15. See chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook of Methods, at
http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm, for more information.
2 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.
3 Employees are classified as working either a full-time or a part-time schedule
based on the definition used by each establishment. Therefore, a worker with a
35-hour-per-week schedule might be considered a full-time employee in one

establishment, but classified as part-time in another firm, where a 40-hour week is the
minimum full-time schedule.
4 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
5 The relative standard error (RSE) is the standard error expressed as a percent of
the estimate. It can be used to calculate a "confidence interval" around a sample
estimate. For more information about RSEs, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook of
Methods, at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

1 Percentiles designate position in the earnings distribution and are calculated
from individual worker earnings and the hours they are scheduled to work. For more
information, see chapter 8 of the Handbook of Methods, at
http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm.
2 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the

survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

1 Employees are classified as working either a full-time or a part-time schedule
based on the definition used by each establishment. Therefore, a worker with a
35-hour-per-week schedule might be considered a full-time employee in one
establishment, but classified as part-time in another firm, where a 40-hour week is the
minimum full-time schedule.
2 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
3 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.
4 Mean weekly earnings are the straight-time weekly wages or salaries paid to

employees. Median weekly earnings designate position in the earnings distribution at
which one-half of the earnings are paid the same as or more than the rate shown and
half are paid the same as or less than the rate shown. Mean weekly hours are the hours
an employee is scheduled to work in a week, exclusive of overtime.
5 Mean annual earnings are the straight-time annual wages or salaries paid to
employees. Median annual earnings designate position in the earnings distribution at
which one-half of the earnings are paid the same as or more than the rate shown and
half are paid the same as or less than the rate shown. Mean annual hours are the hours
an employee is scheduled to work in a year, exclusive of overtime.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

1 Employees are classified as working either a full-time or a part-time schedule
based on the definition used by each establishment. Therefore, a worker with a
35-hour-per-week schedule might be considered a full-time employee in one
establishment, but classified as part-time in another firm, where a 40-hour week is the
minimum full-time schedule.
2 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
3 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.
4 Mean weekly earnings are the straight-time weekly wages or salaries paid to

employees. Median weekly earnings designate position in the earnings distribution at
which one-half of the earnings are paid the same as or more than the rate shown and
half are paid the same as or less than the rate shown. Mean weekly hours are the hours
an employee is scheduled to work in a week, exclusive of overtime.
5 Mean annual earnings are the straight-time annual wages or salaries paid to
employees. Median annual earnings designate position in the earnings distribution at
which one-half of the earnings are paid the same as or more than the rate shown and
half are paid the same as or less than the rate shown. Mean annual hours are the hours
an employee is scheduled to work in a year, exclusive of overtime.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

1 Employees are classified as working either a full-time or a part-time schedule
based on the definition used by each establishment. Therefore, a worker with a
35-hour-per-week schedule might be considered a full-time employee in one
establishment, but classified as part-time in another firm, where a 40-hour week is the
minimum full-time schedule.
2 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
3 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.
4 Mean weekly earnings are the straight-time weekly wages or salaries paid to

employees. Median weekly earnings designate position in the earnings distribution at
which one-half of the earnings are paid the same as or more than the rate shown and
half are paid the same as or less than the rate shown. Mean weekly hours are the hours
an employee is scheduled to work in a week, exclusive of overtime.
5 Mean annual earnings are the straight-time annual wages or salaries paid to
employees. Median annual earnings designate position in the earnings distribution at
which one-half of the earnings are paid the same as or more than the rate shown and
half are paid the same as or less than the rate shown. Mean annual hours are the hours
an employee is scheduled to work in a year, exclusive of overtime.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

the estimate. It can be used to calculate a "confidence interval" around a sample
estimate. For more information about RSEs, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook of

1 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
2 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.
3 Mean weekly earnings are the straight-time weekly wages or salaries paid to
employees. Median weekly earnings designate position in the earnings distribution at
which one-half of the earnings are paid the same as or more than the rate shown and
half are paid the same as or less than the rate shown. Mean weekly hours are the hours

an employee is scheduled to work in a week, exclusive of overtime.
4 Mean annual earnings are the straight-time annual wages or salaries paid to
employees. Median annual earnings designate position in the earnings distribution at
which one-half of the earnings are paid the same as or more than the rate shown and
half are paid the same as or less than the rate shown. Mean annual hours are the hours
an employee is scheduled to work in a year, exclusive of overtime.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

1 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
2 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.
3 Mean weekly earnings are the straight-time weekly wages or salaries paid to
employees. Median weekly earnings designate position in the earnings distribution at
which one-half of the earnings are paid the same as or more than the rate shown and
half are paid the same as or less than the rate shown. Mean weekly hours are the hours

an employee is scheduled to work in a week, exclusive of overtime.
4 Mean annual earnings are the straight-time annual wages or salaries paid to
employees. Median annual earnings designate position in the earnings distribution at
which one-half of the earnings are paid the same as or more than the rate shown and
half are paid the same as or less than the rate shown. Mean annual hours are the hours
an employee is scheduled to work in a year, exclusive of overtime.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

1 Each occupation for which data are collected in an establishment is evaluated
based on four factors, including knowledge, job controls and complexity, contacts,
and physical environment. For more information, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook
of Methods, at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm.
2 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
3 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.
4 Mean weekly earnings are the straight-time weekly wages or salaries paid to
employees. Median weekly earnings designate position in the earnings distribution at

which one-half of the earnings are paid the same as or more than the rate shown and
half are paid the same as or less than the rate shown. Mean weekly hours are the hours
an employee is scheduled to work in a week, exclusive of overtime.
5 Mean annual earnings are the straight-time annual wages or salaries paid to
employees. Median annual earnings designate position in the earnings distribution at
which one-half of the earnings are paid the same as or more than the rate shown and
half are paid the same as or less than the rate shown. Mean annual hours are the hours
an employee is scheduled to work in a year, exclusive of overtime.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

1 Employees are classified as working either a full-time or a part-time schedule
based on the definition used by each establishment. Therefore, a worker with a
35-hour-per-week schedule might be considered a full-time employee in one
establishment, but classified as part-time in another firm, where a 40-hour week is the
minimum full-time schedule.
2 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
3 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.

4 The relative standard error (RSE) is the standard error expressed as a percent of
the estimate. It can be used to calculate a "confidence interval" around a sample
estimate. For more information about RSEs, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook of
Methods, at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm.
5 Mean weekly earnings are the straight-time weekly wages or salaries paid to
employees, exclusive of overtime.
6 Mean annual earnings are the straight-time annual wages or salaries paid to
employees, exclusive of overtime.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

1 Employees are classified as working either a full-time or a part-time schedule
based on the definition used by each establishment. Therefore, a worker with a
35-hour-per-week schedule might be considered a full-time employee in one
establishment, but classified as part-time in another firm, where a 40-hour week is the
minimum full-time schedule.
2 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
3 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.

Mean

4 The relative standard error (RSE) is the standard error expressed as a percent of
the estimate. It can be used to calculate a "confidence interval" around a sample
estimate. For more information about RSEs, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook of
Methods, at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm.
5 Mean weekly earnings are the straight-time weekly wages or salaries paid to
employees, exclusive of overtime.
6 Mean annual earnings are the straight-time annual wages or salaries paid to
employees, exclusive of overtime.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

1 Employees are classified as working either a full-time or a part-time schedule
based on the definition used by each establishment. Therefore, a worker with a
35-hour-per-week schedule might be considered a full-time employee in one
establishment, but classified as part-time in another firm, where a 40-hour week is the
minimum full-time schedule.
2 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
3 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.

4 The relative standard error (RSE) is the standard error expressed as a percent of
the estimate. It can be used to calculate a "confidence interval" around a sample
estimate. For more information about RSEs, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook of
Methods, at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch8_a.htm.
5 Mean weekly earnings are the straight-time weekly wages or salaries paid to
employees, exclusive of overtime.
6 Mean annual earnings are the straight-time annual wages or salaries paid to
employees, exclusive of overtime.
NOTE: Dashes indicate that data did not meet publication criteria. Broad occupational
groups may include data for subordinate occupational groups not shown separately.

1 The NCS uses the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification coding structure,
which defines more than 800 unique occupations, to match jobs sampled by the
survey. Military occupations are excluded from the survey.
2 Earnings are the straight-time hourly wages or salaries paid to employees.
They include incentive pay, cost-of-living adjustments, and hazard pay. Excluded are
premium pay for overtime, vacations, and holidays; nonproduction bonuses; and tips.
The mean is computed by totaling the pay of all workers and dividing by the number
of workers, weighed by hours.
3 The relative standard error (RSE) is the standard error expressed as a percent of
the estimate. It can be used to calculate a "confidence interval" around a sample
estimate. For more information about RSEs, see chapter 8 of the BLS Handbook of
