   1 Includes only occupations and occupational groups with employment of more than
5,000 in establishments receiving all their revenue from green goods and services.
Occupational data will not sum to the major group and all-occupations totals because
totals include occupations for which data are not shown separately.

   2 Annual wages have been calculated by multiplying the hourly mean wage by a
"year-round, full-time" hours figure of 2,080 hours; for those occupations where an
hourly mean wage is not published, the annual wage has been directly calculated from
the reported survey data.

   * Occupation titles followed by an asterisk (*) have similar titles, but not
necessarily the same content, as 2010 SOC occupations.

   NOTE: Data represent occupational employment and wages for establishments that
received all of their revenue from green goods and services. Establishments that did
not generate revenue, such as government  establishments, nonprofits, or startups
without positive  revenue, reported all of their employment associated with the
production of green goods or provision of green services.
