1The sum of paid and unpaid family leave may exceed 100 percent because some workers have access to both types of plans.

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 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.
