1The sum of paid and unpaid family leave may exceed 100 percent because
some workers have access to both types of plans.


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/glossary20102011.htm.

2The 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,
2010." See Technical Note for more details.
