Footnotes:

1The 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: 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 definitions of major plans, key provisions, and
