Footnotes:
(1) Data refer to persons who had 3 or more years of tenure on a job they had lost or left between January 2007 and December 2009 because of plant or company closings or moves, insufficient work, or the abolishment of their positions or shifts.

NOTE: Estimates for the above race groups (White, Black or African American, and Asian) do not sum to totals because data are not presented for all races. Persons whose ethnicity is identified as Hispanic or Latino may be of any race.
