This report looks at the distribution of earnings by occupation for all workers and separately for men and women as reported on the Census 2000 long form. Earnings include wages, salaries, and self-employment income (see Text Box: What is "Earnings"? for more details). Whereas income questions have been asked on the decennial census only since 1940, occupation questions have been asked since 1850. Census 2000 classified occupations into 509 categories, including four special codes for uniquely military occupations, based on the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification which contains 821 detailed occupations (see Text Box: What is the Standard Occupational Classification?). This report also concentrates on year-round, full-time workers in the civilian labor force 16 years of age or older. (Contains 46 footnotes.)
