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&nbs p;2013."


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/glossary20122013.htm.
