OCCUPATIONAL EMPLOYMENT AND WAGES SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, MAY 2007 (PDF) Workers in the San Antonio, Texas, metropolitan area1 had an average (mean) hourly wage of $16.64 during May 2007, compared with the nationwide average of $19.56, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) of the U.S. Department of Labor. Regional Commissioner Stanley W. Suchman noted that, after testing for statistical significance, wages in the local area were lower than their respective national averages in 21 of the 22 major occupational groups. When compared to the nationwide distribution, local employment was more highly concentrated in 6 of the 22 occupational groups including office and administrative support as well as food preparation and serving related workers. Nine occupational groups, including production occupations, had employment shares significantly below their national representation. (See table A and box note at end of release.) Table A.

These statistics are from the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) survey, a federal-state cooperative program between BLS and State Workforce Agencies, in this case the Texas Workforce Commission. The OES survey provides estimates of employment and hourly and annual wages for wage and salary workers in 22 major occupational groups and up to 801 non-military detailed occupations for the nation, states, metropolitan statistical areas, metropolitan divisions, and selected non-metropolitan areas. Occupational wages in the San Antonio area Management and legal occupations were the two highest-paid groups in the San Antonio area in May 2007, with those in management averaging $41.14 an hour and those in legal positions, $36.84. (See chart A and table A.) Nationwide, these were also the two highest-paying groups, with earnings of $46.22 in management and $42.53 in legal occupations. Locally, hourly wages varied widely within the management group. Four occupations had hourly rates over $50.00 (chief executives; financial managers; engineering managers; and natural science managers) and five had rates under $25.00 (social and community service managers; food service managers; property, real estate, and community association managers; funeral directors; and education administrators, preschool and child care center/program). In the legal occupational grouping, lawyers were among the highest paid occupations, with an average local wage of $49.56 an hour while paralegals and legal assistants were at the lower end of the wage scale, averaging $18.81 an hour.

Five occupational groups in the San Antonio area had pay levels clustered between $26.00 and $30.00 per hour - computer and mathematical science; architecture and engineering; healthcare practitioner and technical; life, physical, and social science; and business and financial operations. Although they are among the higher-paying groups in San Antonio, local hourly wage rates for these occupational groups were significantly below their national averages. With the exception of the healthcare practitioner and technical occupational group, in which a variety of physician specialties earned more than $90 per hour, the local average wages for several detailed occupations in these groups was about $40 per hour. Construction and extraction jobs in San Antonio earned $14.34 an hour, significantly below the $19.53 national average. Two detailed occupations, elevator installers and repairers and first-line supervisors/managers of construction trades and extraction workers, earned more than $20.00 an hour in the San Antonio area, while several others averaged less than $12.00 an hour, including construction laborers and all of the construction helper detailed occupations. At $13.55, local wages among office and administrative support occupations were significantly below the U.S. average of $15.00 an hour. Higher-paid positions among office and administrative support occupations in San Antonio reporting wages of $20 or more included statistical assistants, postal service clerks, and brokerage clerks. Jobs with earnings below $10 an hour included couriers and messengers ($9.85) and hotel, motel, and resort desk clerks ($8.55). Among the lowest-paid occupational groups in San Antonio, as well as the nation, were food preparation and serving related occupations earning $8.31 and $9.31 an hour, respectively. Locally, chefs and head cooks ($17.10) were among the highest paid while fast food cooks were among the lowest paid ($7.23). Also at the lower end of the wage scale in San Antonio were personal care and services occupations, with an average wage of $7.97 per hour, significantly less than the U. S. average of $11.53.

Occupational employment in the San Antonio area The largest occupational group in the San Antonio area was office and administrative support with a total of 156,920 jobs representing 19.3 percent of area employment or nearly 1 of every 5 local jobs. (See table A and chart B.) The percentage of San Antonio's employment in this occupational group was significantly higher than the U.S. average of 17.3 percent; nationally, this was also the largest occupational group. In the San Antonio area, customer service representatives (25,220); general office clerks (15,170); and secretaries, except legal, medical and executive (14,830) accounted for the largest number of office and administrative support jobs. (See table 1.) The sales and related occupational group also accounted for a large share of employment in both San Antonio and the nation, at 10.6 and 10.7 percent, respectively. Similar to the nationwide distribution, the relatively low-paid positions of retail salespersons ($10.63) and cashiers ($7.98) accounted for over one-half of local employment in this group, with 28,160 and 21,970 jobs, respectively. On the other hand, two of the better-paid detailed occupations, wholesale and manufacturing sales representatives, except technical and scientific products ($24.12) and first line supervisors/managers of retail sales workers ($18.20), accounted for more than 18 percent of San Antonio's employment in the sales and related group.

Major occupational group

Another occupational group with a significantly higher-than-average employment share in the local workforce was food preparation and serving related workers, making up 9.9 percent of metropolitan area employment compared to 8.4 percent nationally. Nine occupational groups had significantly lower employment shares locally than they did nationally. These groups included transportation and material moving and production jobs. Transportation and material moving occupations accounted for 6.0 percent of the employment in the San Antonio area, significantly below their national employment share at 7.2 percent. The most prevalent detailed occupation in this group locally was hand laborers and freight, stock and material movers (11,230), accounting for nearly one-fourth of this group's employment. Production occupations also had a significantly smaller presence in the San Antonio area than they did at the national level -- 5.3 versus 7.6 percent. Over 20 percent of employment in this group was in the two largest detailed occupations, team assemblers (5,790) and first line supervisors/managers of production and operating workers (3,150).


5 Additional information The May 2007 OES national data by occupation, comparable to data in table 1, are available on the BLS Web site at www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes_nat.htm. Users may access each occupation's definition and percentile wages. Other national data include industry-specific occupational employment and wage data. The May 2007 cross-industry data for other states as well as metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas are available on the BLS Web site at www.bls.gov/oes/current/oessrcma.htm. A more detailed technical note for OES is available at www.bls.gov/news.release/ocwage.tn.htm All Southwest releases are available on our Web site at www.bls.gov/ro6/home.htm. If you have additional questions, contact the BLS Southwest Economic Analysis and Information Unit at 214-767-6970.

The OES wage and employment data for the 22 major occupational groups in the San Antonio metropolitan areas were compared to their respective national averages based on statistical significance testing. Only those occupations with wages or employment shares above or below the respective wage or employment share after testing for significance at the 90-percent confidence level meet the criteria. NOTE: A value that is statistically different from another does not necessarily mean that the difference has economic or practical significance. Statistical significance is concerned with the ability to make confident statements about a universe based on a sample. It is entirely possible that a large difference between two values is not significantly different statistically, while a small difference is, since both the size and heterogeneity of the sample affect the relative error of the data being tested.

Technical Note The Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) survey is a semiannual mail survey measuring occupational employment and wage rates for wage and salary workers in nonfarm establishments in the United States. Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands also are surveyed, but their data are not included in this release. OES estimates are constructed from a sample of about 1.2 million establishments. Forms are mailed to approximately 200,000 establishments in May and November of each year for a 3-year period. The nationwide response rate for the May 2007 survey was 77.9 percent based on establishments and 73.5 percent based on employment. The survey included establishments sampled in the May 2007, November 2006, May 2006, November 2005, May 2005, and November 2004 semiannual panels. The sample in the San Antonio metropolitan area included 4,736 establishments with a response rate of 74 percent. The occupational coding system The OES survey uses the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) occupational classification system, the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system. The SOC system is the first OMBrequired occupational classification system for federal agencies. The OES survey categorizes workers in 1 of 801 detailed occupations. Together, these detailed occupations make up 23 major occupational groups, 22 of which are covered in this release. The one exception is military specific occupations which are not included in the OES survey. For more information about the SOC system, please see the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Web site at www.bls.gov/soc/. The industry coding system The OES survey uses the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). For more information about NAICS, see the BLS Web site at www.bls.gov/bls/naics.htm. Survey sample BLS funds the survey and provides the procedures and technical support, while the State Workforce Agencies (SWAs) collect most of the data. BLS produces cross-industry and industryspecific estimates for the nation, states, metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs), metropolitan divisions, and nonmetropolitan areas. Industry-specific estimates are produced at the NAICS sector, 3-digit, 4digit, and selected 5-digit industry levels. BLS releases all cross-industry and national estimates; the SWAs release industry-specific estimates at the state and MSA levels. State Unemployment Insurance (UI) files provide the universe from which the OES survey draws its sample. Employment benchmarks are obtained from reports submitted by employers to the UI program. The OES survey sample is stratified by metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas and industry. Samples selected in panels prior to May 2005 were stratified using MSA definitions based on the 1990 Metropolitan Statistical Area standards. Beginning with the May 2005 panel, the sample was stratified using new MSA definitions based on the 2000 Metropolitan Statistical Area standards. Concepts Occupational employment is the estimate of total wage and salary employment in an occupation across the industries surveyed. The OES survey defines employment as the number of workers who can be classified as full- or part-time employees, including workers on paid vacations or other types of paid leave; workers on unpaid short-term absences; salaried officers, executives, and staff members of incorporated firms; employees temporarily assigned to other units; and employees for whom the reporting unit is their permanent duty station regardless of whether that unit prepares their paycheck.

Wages for the OES survey are straight-time, gross pay, exclusive of premium pay. Base rate, cost-of-living allowances, guaranteed pay, hazardous-duty pay, incentive pay including commissions and production bonuses, tips, and on-call pay are included. Excluded are: back pay, jury duty pay, overtime pay, severance pay, shift differentials, non-production bonuses, employer cost for supplementary benefits, and tuition reimbursements. Mean hourly wage. The mean hourly wage rate for an occupation is the total wages that all workers in the occupation earn in an hour divided by the total employment of the occupation. To calculate the mean hourly wage of each occupation, total weighted hourly wages are summed across all intervals and divided by the occupation's weighted survey employment. The mean wage for each interval is based on occupational wage data collected by the BLS Office of Compensation and Working Conditions for the National Compensation Survey (NCS). Annual Wage. Many employees are paid at an hourly rate by their employers and may work more than or less than 40 hours per week. Annual wage estimates for most occupations in this release are calculated by multiplying the mean hourly wage by a "year-round, full-time" figure of 2,080 hours (52 weeks by 40 hours). Thus, annual wage estimates may not represent the actual annual pay received by the employee if they work more or less than 2,080 hours per year. Some workers typically work less than fulltime, year round. For these occupations, the OES survey collects and reports either the annual salary or the hourly wage rate, depending on how the occupation is typically paid, but not both. For example, teachers, flight attendants, and pilots may be paid an annual salary, but do not work the usual 2,080 hours per year. In this case, an annual salary is reported. Other workers, such as entertainment workers, are paid hourly rates, but generally do not work full time, year round. For these workers, only an hourly wage is reported. Hourly versus Annual Wage Reporting. For each occupation, respondents are asked to report the number of employees paid within specific wage intervals. The intervals are defined both as hourly rates and the corresponding annual rates, where the annual rate for an occupation is calculated by multiplying the hourly wage rate by a typical work year of 2,080 hours. The responding establishment can reference either the hourly or the annual rate for full-time workers, but they are instructed to report the hourly rate for part-time workers. Estimation methodology Each OES panel includes approximately 200,000 establishments. The OES survey is designed to produce estimates using six panels (3 years) of data. The full six-panel sample of 1.2 million establishments allows the production of estimates at detailed levels of geography, industry, and occupation. Wage Updating. Significant reductions in sampling errors are obtained by combining six panels of data, particularly for small geographic areas and occupations. Wages for the current panel need no adjustment. However, wages in the five previous panels need to be updated to the current panel's reference period. The OES program uses the BLS Employment Cost Index (ECI) to adjust survey data from prior panels before combining them with the current panel's data. The wage updating procedure adjusts each detailed occupation's wage rate, as measured in the earlier panel, according to the average movement of its broader occupational division. The procedure assumes that there are no major differences by geography, industry, or detailed occupation within the occupational division.

May 2007 OES survey estimates. The May 2007 OES survey estimates are based on all data collected from establishments in the May 2007, November 2006, May 2006, November 2005, May 2005, November 2004 semiannual samples Reliability of the estimates. Estimates calculated from a sample survey are subject to two types of error: sampling and nonsampling. Sampling error occurs when estimates are calculated from a subset (that is, a sample) of the population instead of the full population. When a sample of the population is surveyed, there is a chance that the sample estimate of the characteristic of interest may differ from the population value of that characteristic. Differences between the sample estimate and the population value will vary depending on the sample selected. This variability can be estimated by calculating the standard error (SE) of the sample estimate. If we were to repeat the sampling and estimation process countless times using the same survey design, approximately 90 percent of the intervals created by adding and subtracting 1.645 SEs from the sample estimate would include the population value. These intervals are called 90-percent confidence intervals. The OES survey, however, usually uses the relative standard error (RSE) of a sample estimate instead of its SE to measure sampling error. RSE is defined as the SE of a sample estimate divided by the sample estimate itself. This statistic provides the user with a measure of the relative precision of the sample estimate. RSEs are calculated for both occupational employment and mean wage rate estimates. Occupational employment RSEs are calculated using a subsample, random group replication technique called the jackknife. Mean wage rate RSEs are calculated using a variance components model that accounts for both the observed and unobserved components of the wage data. The variances of the unobserved components are estimated using wage data from the BLS National Compensation Survey. In general, estimates based on many establishments have lower RSEs than estimates based on few establishments. If the distributional assumptions of the models are violated, the resulting confidence intervals may not reflect the prescribed level of confidence. Nonsampling error occurs for a variety of reasons, none of which are directly connected to sampling. Examples of nonsampling error include: nonresponse, data incorrectly reported by the respondent, mistakes made in entering collected data into the database, and mistakes made in editing and processing the collected data.

Upcoming Reduction in Sample Size of Occupational Employment Statistics Survey Due to budget constraints, Occupational Employment Statistics has reduced the sample size of the May 2008 panel by 20 percent. Because OES estimates are produced from 3 years of pooled data, this one-time sample reduction will affect estimates for May 2008, May 2009, and May 2010. This reduction is expected to decrease the number of published employment estimates by at least 5 percent, or about 25,000 estimates, and will decrease the accuracy of the remaining estimates. The number and quality of wage estimates also are expected to decline. These cutbacks are being implemented in response to a reduction in funding to the BLS that resulted from the 2008 Consolidated Appropriations Act enacted on December 26, 2007.
