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. Dash indicates no workers in this category or data did not meet publication criteria. For
