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
or levels.

2The 2010 Standard Occupational Classification system is used to classify workers.


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.
