The sector titled Other Services includes a wide variety of establishments which offer an array of services, such as repair and maintenance, personal and laundry services, and private household services such as house cleaning and nanny services. From 2009 to 2010, the number of establishments remained relatively stable, with the worker level dropping slightly to from a 2009 level of 10,366 to 10,283 in 2010.
Annual pay increased from $24,564 in 2009 to $25,185 in 2010 (2.5 percent). Perhaps it is not surprising this industry still struggles to grow, as it is made up of services individuals often feel are luxuries — like private household help, personal care services, and social or business organizations — which can be cut back on during economically uncertain times.
The subsector of Repair and Maintenance (NAICS 811) had a comeback in employment compared to last year, gaining back 21 workers (0.5 percent increase). The annual average pay was $30,232 in 2009, increasing 2.1 percent to $30,879 in 2010.
The Personal and Laundry Services subsector (NAICS 812) lost workers, from 2,734 in 2009 to 2,709 in 2010 (0.9 percent). Annual pay for subsector was $18,960 in 2009 and $19,278 in 2010 (1.9 percent increase).
The Religious, Grantmaking, Civic, Professional and Similar Organizations subsector (NAICS 813) had the largest worker loss of any subsector in this industry group. The 2009 average number of workers was 3,501; 2010 the average number of workers was 3,415, a loss of 2.5 percent. This is likely a reflection of people limiting donations and other types of gifting during these challenging times. The average annual wage increased by 3.2 percent from $23,528 in 2009 to $24,291 in 2010;
Private Households (NAICS 814) subsector had the most losses in the number of establishments in this subsector in 2010. The annual pay for workers in this subsector increased from $14,085 in 2009 to $14,585 in 2010 (3.5 percent).
