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 2018.

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
