1The sum of the individual components may be greater than the total because some
employees may have access to more than one type of nonproduction bonus.

4Surveyed 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."

2Includes all other bonuses provided to employees and not published separately.


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.
