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< /span>
Compensation - March 2013."


NOTE: Because of rounding, sums of individual items
may not equal totals. For definitions of major plans, key
provisions, and related terms, see the "Glossary of
