(1) Estimate is suppressed because it does not meet the American Time Use Survey publication standards.

NOTE: Estimates refer to work done for one's main job only and exclude travel related to work. These estimates are a snapshot showing the percent of individuals working at the one-minute interval that starts at the time indicated. Estimates were generated using the 2010 Census occupational classification system which was introduced in the 2011 American Time Use Survey. Estimates are not strictly comparable to those from earlier years. Data refer to persons 15 years and over. For technical information about the American Time Use Survey, see the ATUS User's Guide at
