1Plans that allow employees to accumulate unused
sick leave from year to year.


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& nbsp;Compensation - March 2013."
