1Surveyed 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: 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 related terms, see the
"Glossary of Employee Benefit Terms" at
