center, or a baby sitter in facilities either on or off the employer's premises.

3Surveyed occupations are classified into wage categories based on the average wage for the occupation, which may include
workers with earnings both above and below the threshold.  The categories were formed using percentile estimates generated using
data from the National Compensation Survey publication, "Employer Costs for Employee Compensation - March 2013."


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/glossary20122013.htm.
