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 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 pay the
same as or more than the premium shown, and half pay the same as or less than the premium shown. At the 25th percentile, one-fourth of participating workers pay the same or less than
the premium shown. The remaining percentiles follow the same logic.

3The categories are based on the average wage for each occupation surveyed, which may include workers with earnings both above and below the threshold. The average wages are
based on the estimates published in the "National Compensation Survey: Occupational Earnings in the United States, 2009." See Technical Note for more details.


NOTE: For definitions of major plans, key provisions, and related terms, see the "Glossary of Employee Benefit Terms" at www.bls.gov/ncs/ebs/glossary20092010.htm.
