NOTE: Data refer to the sole or principal job of full- and part-time wage and salary workers. All self-employed workers are excluded, both those with incorporated businesses as well as those with unincorporated businesses.

This classification system is derived from the 2010 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC). No historical data have been revised. Data for 2011 and later years are not strictly comparable with data for earlier years. More information is online at www.bls.gov/cps/cpsoccind.htm.
