1 The Kansas City Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (Clay and Jackson Counties, M issouri, and Johnson and Wyandotte Counties,
Kansas).
The "w orkers within scope of study" estimates shown in this table provide a reasonably accurate description of the size and
composition of the labor force included in the survey.
The estimates are not intended, however, to serve as a basis of comparison with
other area employment indexes to measure employment trends or levels since (l) planning of wage surveys requires the use of establishment
data compiled considerably in advance of the payroll period studied, and (2) small establishments are excluded from the scope of the
survey.
2 The 1957 revised edition of the Standard Industrial Classification Manual was used in classifying establishments by industry division.
Major changes from the earlier edition (used in the Bureau's labor market wage surveys conducted prior to July 1958) are the transfer
of m ilk pasteurization plants and ready-m ixed concrete establishments from trade (wholesale or retail) to manufacturing, and the transfer
of radio and television broadcasting from services to the transportation, communication, and other public utilities division.
3 Includes all establishments with total employment at or above the m inim um -size limitation (50 em ployees). All outlets (with­
in the area) of companies in such industries as trade, finance, auto repair service, and motion-picture theaters are considered as 1
establishment.

coverage was insufficient to justify separate presentation of data.

Appendix: Occupational Descriptions
The primary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau’ s wage surveys is to a s s is t its
field staff in cla ssifyin g into appropriate occupations workers who are employed under a variety of payroll
titles and different work arrangements from establishment to establishment and from area to area. This is
essen tia l in order to permit the grouping of occupational wage rates representing comparable job content.
Because of this emphasis on interestablishment and interarea comparability of occupational content, the
Bureau’ s job descriptions may differ significantly from those in use in individual establishments or those
prepared for other purposes ln applying these job descriptions, the Bureau’ s field economists are
instructed to exclude working supervisors, apprentices, learners, beginners, trainees, handicapped workers,
part-time, temporary, and probationary workers.
