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.

(2) = Median hourly wage is equal to or greater than $70.00 per hour.

(3) = Estimates not released due to high relative standard error.

(4) = 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.
