About 1999 National, State, and Metropolitan Area Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates
Estimates for residual, "All Other", occupations are not available.
(1) Annual wages have been calculated by multiplying the hourly mean wage by a "year-round, full-time" hours figure of 2,080 hours; for those occupations where there is not an hourly mean wage published, the annual wage has been directly calculated from the reported survey data.
(3) = Wage rates are calculated using three years of data: 1997, 1998, and 1999.
The relative standard error (RSE) is a measure of the reliability of a survey statistic. The smaller the relative standard error, the more precise the estimate.
