1Surveyed 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: Because of rounding, sums of individual items may not equal totals.
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
