1 Data come from the Current Population Survey (CPS), a survey of about 60,000 households selected to represent the U.S. population 16 years and older. The survey is conducted monthly by the Census Bureau for the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Multiple jobholders are those persons who report in the reference week that they are wage or salary workers who hold two or more jobs, self-employed workers who also hold a wage or salary job, or unpaid family workers who also hold a wage or salary job. Multiple jobholding rates by State (and for the District of Columbia) are calculated as the number of multiple jobholders in that jurisdiction as a percentage of total employment in the jurisdiction. All multiple jobholding rates in this article are annual averages.
