Footnotes:

1The total is less than the sum of individual childcare provisions because some employees have access to more than one of the benefits.

2Less than 0.5 percent.

3The percentile groupings are based on the average wage for each occupation surveyed, which may include workers both above and below the threshold. The percentile values are based on the estimates published in the "National Compensation Survey: Occupational Earnings in the United States, 2007." See Technical Note for more details.

NOTE: Dash indicates no workers in this category or data did not meet publication criteria.
