Footnotes:

1The percentile groupings are based on the average wage for each occupation surveyed, which may include
workers both above and below the threshold. The percentile values are based on the estimates published in the
"National Compensation Survey: Occupational Earnings in the United States, 2008." See Technical Note for more
details.

NOTE: Because of rounding, sums of individual items may not equal totals. For definitions of major plans, key
provisions, and related terms, see the "Glossary of Employee Benefit Terms" at
