    If you are wondering what the "Duncan Score" is, I believe it is a measure of "prestige" as mentioned here, here, and here. If you want to buy Duncan's original paper, you can buy it here, but I did not do so.

    More current data on the jobs listed (I converted hourly rates by multiplying by 2000. I quoted the 5-9 yr experience data.):

    Laborers isn't a very good word for construction workers. It's sort of ambiguous.

    Yeah, I didn't know what they meant, but when I typed in "payscale laborer" into Google, "Construction Laborer" is what I got.

    Also, I found more recent (2004) data, though not split by gender. Interestingly, the jobs listed are already covered in my links to payscale.com (present salary data):

    US Census Press Releases

    Code:
    Secretaries and administrative assistants                   3.9 million
    Retail salespersons                                         3.6 million
    Driver/sales workers and truck drivers                      3.3 million
    Elementary and middle school teachers                       3.1 million
    Cashiers                                                    3.1 million
    First line supervisors/managers of retail sales workers     2.8 million
    Registered nurses                                           2.3 million
    Customer service representatives                            2.1 million
    Janitors and building cleaners                              2.0 million
    Laborers and freight, stock, and material movers (by hand)  2.0 million
    Oh, and I found 2008 data with a lot of information (pdf warning for both)
