1998 State Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates

Oregon REVISED

The 1998 OES estimates for Oregon have been revised to incorporate corrections to some of the occupational wage estimates. The corrections were required because Oregon's minimum wage over the three-year data collection period was significantly higher than the Federal minimum wage level. These corrections did not affect employment estimates.

Virtually all of the corrections to the Statewide estimates were within the published sampling error range for the estimate. While the majority of the changes were within a +/- 5 cents an hour range, there were some occupations with larger changes. The changes to hourly mean wage estimates for Oregon ranged between a decrease of $1.19 to an increase of 12 cents per hour.

For further information about these changes please call the Occupational Employment Statistics information line on 202-691-6569.

Occupational divisions in Oregon:

Due to confidentiality and quality criteria, the BLS cannot produce estimates for every occupation in every area. However, States may be able to release additional OES occupational estimates after obtaining release authorizations from establishments.

(1) = Relative standard error (RSE) of the mean wage. The relative standard error (RSE) is a measure of the reliability of a survey statistic. The smaller the relative standard error, the more precise the estimate.

(*) = Employment estimate is not available.

* = Hourly wage rates for occupations where workers typically work fewer than 2,080 hours per year are not available.

Annual wages have been calculated by multiplying the hourly mean wage by a "year-round, full-time" hours figure of 2,080 hours; for those occupations where there is not an hourly mean wage published, the annual wage has been directly calculated from the reported survey data.

# = Median hourly wage is over $60.01 per hour.
