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 wage data for March 2015.


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
