1The number of workers represented by the
survey are rounded to the nearest 100. Estimates of
the number of workers provide a description of the
size and composition of the labor force included in
the survey. Estimates are not intended, however, for
comparison to other statistical series to measure
employment trends&nbs p;or levels.


NOTE: Because of rounding, sums of individual
items may not equal totals. Dashes indicate that no
estimates for this characteristic are provided in this
publication.
