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

3Less than 0.5 percent.

4The 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.
