indicates no workers in this category or data did not meet publication criteria. For

2Surveyed 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."
