1Surveyed 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: Because of rounding, sums of individual items may not equal totals. 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.
