Footnotes:

1Includes workers in the private nonfarm economy except those in private households, and workers in the public sector, except the federal
government. See Technical Note for further explanation.

2The sum of paid and unpaid family leave may exceed 100 percent because some workers have access to both types of plans.

3The categories are based on the average wage for each occupation surveyed, which may include workers with earnings both above and
below the threshold. The average wages are based on the estimates published in the "National Compensation Survey: Occupational Earnings in
the United States, 2009." See Technical Note for more details.


NOTE: For definitions of major plans, key provisions, and related terms, see the "Glossary of Employee Benefit Terms" at
