Its a Salary(dot) com survey... Here's a sample of what they do and the math:<quoted text>
Thanks for acknowledging that!!!!
It does irk me a little when I hear about SAHMs' "pay value" being 100k+ a year. I dont' argue that it is a HARD job and VERY important, but most of us get everything done that a SAHM does AND work 40-50 hours a week. I would LOVE to have the leisure of 9 or 10 extra hours a day to go to the grocery, straighten up the house, do laundry, etc. I don't believe that's 100k+ a year job (if it were to be paid) and I NEVER hear what a working mom would be worth. That being said, I think you might be onto something about the LW.

Working moms: 5.5 hours a week
#5 Mom Job: Computer Operator

They do have a description of what goes into it, like when you play Angry Birds, that 'coutns' as a computer operator... They should be coming out with teh new survey results soon...
