About stdlib...

We believe in a future in which the web is a preferred environment for numerical computation. To help realize this future, we've built stdlib. stdlib is a standard library, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computation, written in JavaScript (and C) for execution in browsers and in Node.js.

The library is fully decomposable, being architected in such a way that you can swap out and mix and match APIs and functionality to cater to your exact preferences and use cases.

When you use stdlib, you can be absolutely certain that you are using the most thorough, rigorous, well-written, studied, documented, tested, measured, and high-quality code out there.

To join us in bringing numerical computing to the web, get started by checking us out on GitHub, and please consider financially supporting stdlib. We greatly appreciate your continued support!

Wage Rates

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

Wage rates for U.S. workers that have not changed jobs within the year.


npm install @stdlib/datasets-frb-sf-wage-rigidity


var wages = require( '@stdlib/datasets-frb-sf-wage-rigidity' );


Returns wage rates for U.S. workers that have not changed jobs within the year.

var data = wages();
// returns [{...},{...},...]

Each array element has the following fields:

  • date: collection date (month/day/year; e.g., 01/01/1980).
  • all_workers: wage rates for hourly and non-hourly workers.
  • hourly_workers: wage rates for hourly workers.
  • non_hourly_workers: wage rates for non-hourly workers.
  • less_than_high_school: wage rates for workers with less than a high school education.
  • high_school: wage rates for workers with a high school education.
  • some_college: wage rates for workers with some college education.
  • college: wage rates for workers with a college education.
  • construction: wage rates for workers in the construction industry.
  • finance: wage rates for workers in the finance industry.
  • manufacturing: wage rates for workers in the manufacturing industry.
