1A workplace program that provides for either the full or partial cost of caring for an employee's children in a nursery, day care
center, or a baby sitter in facilities either on or off the employer's premises.
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
wage data for March 2017.

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/glossary20162017.htm.
