In 2007, the titles were updated to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) December 2003 area definitions. The new area definitions may be found at the U.S. Census Bureau site www.census.gov/population/www/estimates/metrodef.html.

To find pay relatives for a Metropolitan Statistical Area survey of interest, click on a State in the map or in the Table, or scroll down this page. To see National data, click on NATIONAL .

Over-the-year changes in area and occupational pay relatives do not infer changes in underlying economic conditions.

Occupational Pay Relative news releases and supplemental area-to-area comparison tables for 2004-08 were reissued on Wednesday, May 26, 2010 to remove table asterisks that have incorrectly indicated statistically significant differences between some estimates. News release text references to statistical significance have also been removed. Pay relative estimates have not changed. For more information, see http://www.bls.gov/ncs/#notices.

Please note that only the two most recent publications for each area are listed on this page. For additional historical data, please click on Archives.
