Footnotes:

1The list of establishments from which the survey sample was selected (sampling frame) was developed from State unemployment insurance reports and is based on the 2007 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.
