Footnotes:

1The sum of paid and unpaid family leave may exceed 100 percent because some workers have access to both types of plans.

2The 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
