Footnotes:

1The 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.
