Footnotes
(1) Employed persons are classified as full- or part-time workers based on their usual weekly hours at all jobs regardless of the number of hours they were at work during the reference week. Persons absent from work also are classified according to their usual status. Full time is 35 hours or more per week; part time is less than 35 hours.
(2) Includes some persons at work 35 hours or more classified by their reason for working part time.

NOTE: Estimates for the above race groups (White, Black or African American, and Asian) do not sum to totals because data are not presented for all races. Persons whose ethnicity is identified as Hispanic or Latino may be of any race. Updated population controls are introduced annually with the release of January data.
