Footnotes:

1The sum of the individual components may be greater than the total because some employees may have access to more than one type of nonproduction bonus.

2Includes all other bonuses provided to employees and not published separately.

3Less than 0.05.

4The 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: Dash indicates no workers in this category or data did not meet publication criteria. For definitions of major plans, key provisions, and related terms, see the
"Glossary of Employee Benefit Terms" at www.bls.gov/ncs/ebs/glossary20082009.htm.
