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.

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& nbsp;Compensation - March 2013."
