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.

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

3Surveyed occupations are classified into wage categories based on the average wage for the occupation, which may include workers with earnings both above and
below the threshold.  The categories were formed using percentile estimates generated using data from the National Compensation Survey publication, "Employer Costs
for Employee Compensation - March 2013."


NOTE: For definitions of major plans, key provisions, and related terms, see the "Glossary of Employee Benefit Terms" at www.bls.gov/ncs/ebs/glossary20122013.htm.
