Footnotes
(1) North American Industry Classification System, 2012.
(2) GGS employment is the number of jobs related to the production of Green Goods and Services. This table reflects private ownership only.
(3) GGS percent is the percentage of the GGS employment compared to the total employment. This value is derived by dividing the GGS employment by the total employment.
(4) Data do not meet BLS disclosure standards.
(5) Estimate cannot be created due to the conversion from NAICS 2007 to NAICS 2012.
(6) The 2012 NAICS conversion changed the GGS scope for this industry. BLS utilized backcasting to make the 2010 and 2011 estimates comparable. See the extended technical note for more detail.

NOTE: GGS data for 2010 have been revised to incorporate methodological changes explained in the Technical Note. Please also note data may not add to total due to rounding.
