1A consolidated leave plan provides a single amount of time-off for
workers to use for multiple purposes, such as vacation, illness, or personal
business. Those with no consolidated leave plan often have separate
leave plans for different purposes.


NOTE: Because of rounding, sums of individual items may not equal
totals. For definitions of major plans, key provisions, and related terms,
see the "Glossary of Employee Benefit Terms" at
www.bls.gov/ncs/ebs/glossary20112012.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.
