Annual Earnings of Household Heads in Production Jobs, 1973. Summary: Special Labor Force Report.
Department of Labor, Washington, DC.
The statistics are based on a household survey, collected annually, and are related to one year's earnings experience of family heads and unrelated individuals. Data show that after-tax earnings for the 30 million persons surveyed rose in 1973 by 5.8 percent but fell 0.4 percent after adjustment for consumer price increases (real after-tax earnings). Variations depended on sex and type of family head. Real after-tax earnings for husbands heading four-person families rose 1.6 percent, but for women who headed families real after-tax earnings dropped nearly 4 percent. Tables display (1) gross median earnings, 1963, 1972 and 1973, (2) after-tax median earnings, 1963, 1972, and 1973, (3) real after-tax median earnings, 1963, 1972, and 1973, (4) gross median earnings, 1963-1973, (5) after-tax median earnings, 1963-1973, and (6) real after-tax median earnings, 1963-1973 (1967 dollars). All tables refer to household heads who are nonsupervisory production workers (clerical, sales, blue-collar, and service excluding private household work) and to family type and size. (MDW)
