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 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.
