1A consolidated leave plan provides a single amount of time-off for
workers to use for multiple purposes, such as vacation, illness, or personal
business. Those with no consolidated leave plan often have separate
leave plans for different purposes.


NOTE: Because of rounding, sums of individual items may not equal
totals. 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&nbs p;2013."
