a Wages do not include supplements to wages and salaries such as pension, profit-sharing, and other retirement plans, and health, life, and unemployment insurance compensation.
b The data in this table have been revised as a result of the Bureau of Economic Analysis' comprehensive revision of the National Income and Product Accounts (NIPA).
c Establishments furnishing services incidental to transportation, such as forwarding and packing services and the arrangement of passenger and freight transportation.
Use care in comparing the data in this table with those in table 3-22. This table includes weighted part-time employees' salaries. Table 3-22 covers only full-time employees. 1960-85 data are based on the 1972 SIC codes; 1990-2000 data are based on the 1987 SIC codes.
The Bureau of Economic Analysis provides these data on a SIC basis ending in 2000 and on a North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) basis beginning in 1998 (see table 3-21b for data based on NAICS).
Wage and salary accruals consist of the monetary remuneration of employees, including compensation of corporate officers; commissions, tips and bonuses; voluntary employee contributions to certain deferred compensation plans, such as 401(k) plans; and receipts in kind that represent income. In other words, accruals are wage and salary earned, not wage and salary paid. For example, wage and salary earned in 1999 but not paid until 2000 are included in accruals for 1999. However, the difference between wage and salary earned and wage and salary paid is usually very small.
