Methodology...................................................................................................................149 Occupational Title Index................................................................................................151 The 2000 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) has been revised. Beginning with the 2011 edition, occupations affected by the new SOC structure revision have been updated using new codes and definitions. There are some select occupations still coded against SOC 2000 during this transition period. There are also a few temporary codes that will exist only during this transition period. Occupational employment and wage data are point-in-time estimates and should not be compared to other year’s data. This is especially true during coding structure transition periods since codes may not have changed but underlying definitions may have changed affecting the resulting information. See http://www.ndworkforceintelligence.com/ for more information about the new SOC code. Copyright Š 2012 Job Service North Dakota. All Rights Reserved.

Before You Begin Browsing... Job Service North Dakota is proud to introduce the 2012 edition of Wages for North Dakota Jobs, featuring 2011 data. In a cooperative effort with the United States Department of Labor, occupational wage and employment estimates are derived from the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) survey, considered the most reliable source of occupational wage data in the nation. This publication is intended to help employees and employers determine how their wages compare to other regions and occupations within the state. It can also be utilized as a tool to help students, educators, and public officials decide which programs will best prepare our evolving workforce for the high-paying jobs of the future. Due to the timing of the data collection cycle, any recently enacted minimum wage changes may not be fully reflected in the published wages. This publication lists an occupation’s available geographic detail in one area, resulting in easy cross-regional comparisons. “Entry” is the average of the lowest third of the available “Typical (Median)” is the middle wages. wage.

“Experienced” is the average of the upper two-thirds of the available wages.

“Average (Mean)” is the sum of the wages divided by number of wages collected.

Employment estimates are based on data collected up to May 2011. Occupational data are presented and arranged by the six-digit Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) code; XX-“0000” denotes a major occupational group, while all other entries indicate specific, disclosable occupations. An Occupational Title Index provides an alphabetical listing of “official” and alternate titles and corresponding occupational codes.

Regional data may not be available or disclosable for all occupations. Due to rounding and the inclusion of Minnesota counties in two of the state’s Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs), substate geographies will NOT add up to statewide totals.

“N/A” indicates the data cannot be released due to reliability, availability or confidentiality issues.

Additionally, a Geographic Guide is provided on the next page, to aid in determining what wages best represent your area.

Due to the irregular nature of hours worked for select occupations i.e. school teacher or pilot, a typical 2,080-hour work year cannot be assumed; therefore, only annual wages are reportable and you will see N/A in place of an hourly wage.

Occupational description. Represents the estimated employment for an occupation specific to a geographic area.

For an electronic copy, visit NDWIN (www.ndworkforceintelligence.com) and select the Products tab. For additional information, visit Job Service North Dakota’s Web site at www.jobsnd.com or the Bureau of Labor Statistics Web site at www.bls.gov. The results of this survey are made available through the voluntary cooperation of employers throughout the state. Job Service North Dakota extends its thanks to those employers who responded to the survey. 1

Methodology The occupational wage information contained in this publication is the result of a cooperative program between the United States Department of Labor and Job Service North Dakota. Agencies within the Department of Labor involved in this project include the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and the Employment and Training Administration (ETA). BLS and ETA control the methodology and accuracy of the results. The data are gathered through voluntary reporting by businesses across the nation. This method allows for comparison between states and substate areas. The wage and employment estimates are based on information gathered over a cycle covering 2008 through 2011. During this period, Job Service North Dakota asked more than 6,000 North Dakota business establishments to participate in the survey. The average response rate was 80 percent. Results of these surveys are summarized, based on the following areas: statewide, three Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs), and four balance-of-state regions. The Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) survey is designed to yield reliable wage estimates for all states and selected areas within those states, across all industries, and from establishments of various sizes. The sample is selected from the list of establishments reporting to the state unemployment insurance program, based on a probability sample. Since 2002, data collected from surveyed employers have been based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). The NAICS-based sample was extracted at the four- and five-digit industry level for each of the state’s three MSAs and four balance-of-state regions. The OES survey works on a three-year rotation designed to incorporate six semi-annual panels of data. Standard, industry-specific questionnaires developed by the Department of Labor BLS were mailed to employers through a national mail center and returned to the Job Service North Dakota Labor Market Information Center. If there was no initial response, up to three follow-up mailings were sent out. After the third mailing, a number of non-respondents were contacted by telephone. The data are collected semi-annually, with the first panel starting in May and a second panel starting in November. Employers were asked to provide the number of employees in 770 occupational categories, distributed across 12 wage ranges. The bottom interval floor is the state’s minimum wage. The top interval includes wages of $90 per hour and higher, and is considered an open interval. The occupational descriptions used in the survey were based upon the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system. Wage data from previous survey panels are adjusted using the Employment Cost Index (ECI), which brings wages current to the latest data collected in the survey, in this case May 2011. The OES survey applies actual industry employment numbers from the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages to arrive at the occupational employment estimates. The employment in each industry is proportionally allocated to occupations; the number in each occupation is then added to the cross-industry levels published in the book. Both the mean and median are measures of average or central tendency. The mean is a mathematical average. The median, or typical wage, is the middle wage. Generally, this means 50 percent of the

149


Methodology wages will be less than this value and 50 percent greater. The median is less likely to be influenced by an extremely high or low individual wage within the distribution. Consequently, the median is a more stable indicator of the middle wage. Job Service North Dakota also reports the entry and experienced wage for each occupation. The entry wage is the mean (average) of the lower one-third of wages reported, and the experienced is the mean (average) of the upper two-thirds of the wages. The upper wage range is open-ended, meaning it includes all jobs paying $90 per hour and higher. Consequently, for some of these occupations, the median is not reportable. But, with the inclusion of National Compensation Survey data, it is now possible to calculate a mean for an occupation paying $90 per hour and higher. While the addition of the National Compensation Survey data better represents pay for “high wage� jobs, caution should be exercised when interpreting these results. The BLS Alternative Titles are included in the index and in the body of the book for the users’ convenience. All surveys are subject to response as well as processing errors. Errors are reduced through review, edit, screening procedures, and contact with respondents whose data are inconsistent or appear to involve misinterpretation of instructions or definitions. Every effort has been made to minimize human error. The data are provided as is, and Job Service North Dakota makes no warranty, either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, warranties of correctness and fitness for a particular purpose. In no event will Job Service North Dakota be liable for any indirect special, consequential, or other damages, however caused. There is error inherent in sampling that cannot be corrected by screening. There is always a chance the data may lead to erroneous results. The chance can be minimized, but never removed.
