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.

2Includes workers in the private nonfarm economy except those in private households, and workers in the public sector, except the federal
government. See Technical Note for further explanation.

3The categories are based on the average wage for each occupation surveyed, which may include workers with earnings both above and below the
threshold. The average wages are based on the estimates published in the "National Compensation Survey: Occupational Earnings in the United States,
2010." See Technical Note for more details.


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/glossary20102011.htm.
