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.

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,
2010." See Technical Note for more details.

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


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