The article, "Labor Force projections to 2020: a more slowly growing workforce," which appeared on pages 43–64 in the January 2012 issue, contained a few errors.
In table 1, on page 44, the percent distribution for those of Hispanic origin in 2010 should have been 14.8 percent. Also in table 1, the projected percent change from 2010 to 2020 in the White non-Hispanic labor force should have been −1.5 percent.
On page 45, in the last paragraph of the Fertility section, the first sentence should have read "In the most recent Census Bureau projection of the resident population, used as the basis of the BLS labor force projections, the future fertility rate is assumed to remain close to the present level, roughly the replacement level of 2.1."
On page 46, in the first paragraph, the sentence beginning on the sixth line should have read, "According to the Census Bureau's population projections used in the 2010−2020 projections of the labor force, net immigration to the United States is expected to add 1.4 million people annually to the U.S. resident population."
