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
www.bls.gov/ncs/ebs/glossary20122013.htm.

2Surveyed 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."
