Methodology and Assumptions
This data was sourced from the person-level data recorded by the American Communities Survey. The version of the survey used was the most recent 5 year revision for data recorded from 2013-2017. These results represent 1,179,398 Grounds Maintenance Workers. The occupation code that was used to generate these results e was 4250 to read more about the occupation codes that the ACS and Census use. These results were generated in R using raw data from the ACS and precalculated in a batch. This data includes all individual income for the survey respondent, so some of the people may have a wage job as well as other income sources. I did not limit to wage income, because many occupations have high portions of entrepreneurs (CEOs, doctors, tradespeople).Exclusions and Filters Applied:
- Filtered for people who reported working at least 30 hours a week.
- High School Graduates and GED graduates were original 2 separate categories that I combined.
- Anything below High School Graduates is combined into a separate category. I did not include these on the page for space reason but I can. The data has data for associate degree holders and some college and these values are mostly in between the high school and bachelors samples. There doesn't seem to be a significant difference between some college and an associates degree.
- All ages are included and not separated. I did some initial testing and there is a difference if the data is split out by age, but I wasn't able to consolidate the data into a way that would make it fast to interact with and avoid being too complicated.
- There may be some confusion around a masters degree vs a professional degree beyond a masters. This was a distinction made in the original raw data that I decided to keep. Because the data is collected by polling people individually, some of the respondents may have mixed up the difference depending on how they phrased their response.
- Masters Degree : MBA, Masters in Something
- Professional Degree beyond a Bachelors Degree: Law Degree, Medical School, generally these degrees are credentials for specific careers.
- Doctoral Degree: PHd
