Footnotes:

1Includes participants in plans providing a fixed benefit amount. Dollar amounts can be a flat amount or can vary by the
employee’s earnings or length of service.

2Includes workers in the private nonfarm economy except those in private households, and workers in the public sector, except
the federal government. See Technical Note for further explanation.

3The 10th, 25th, 50th, 75th, and 90th percentiles designate position within each published series. For example, at the 50th
percentile or median, half of participating workers receive the same as or more than the amount shown, and half receive the same as
or less than the amount shown. At the 25th percentile, one-fourth of participating workers receive the same or less than the amount
shown. The remaining percentiles follow the same logic.
