   1 The list of establishments from which the survey sample was selected (sampling frame) was
 developed from State unemployment insurance reports and is based on the 2012 North American
 Industry Classification System (NAICS). For private industries, an establishment is usually a
 single physical location. For state and local governments, an establishment is defined as all
 locations of a government entity. 
   2 Establishments that provided data at the initial interview.
   3 Establishments that did not provide data at the initial interview. Data for establishments
 not responding at the time of update interviews are imputed. Detailed information on nonresponse
 adjustment and imputation can be found in BLS Handbook of Methods, Chapter 8, “National
 Compensation Measures,” Bureau of Labor Statistics, on the Internet at
