explanation.

2The 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.

3Includes all other bonuses provided to employees and not published separately.

4Less than 0.5.

5Surveyed 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 ECEC data for March 2014.


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/glossary20132014.htm.
