Footnotes:

1Includes 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.

2The sum of the individual components may be greater than the total because some employees may have access to more than one type of stock option.

3Less than 0.5 percent.

4The percentile groupings are based on the average wage for each occupation surveyed, which may include workers both above and below the threshold. The percentile values are
based on the estimates published in the "National Compensation Survey: Occupational Earnings in the United States, 2008." See Technical Note for more details.

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/glossary20082009.htm.
