1Includes workers in private industry and state and local government. See Technical Note for further explanation.
2The sum of paid and unpaid family leave may exceed 100 percent because some workers have access to both types of plans.
3Surveyed 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 2017.

Note: For definitions of major plans, key provisions, and related terms, see the "Glossary of Employee Benefit Terms" at
