       1 Data refer to persons who had 3 or more years of tenure on a job they had lost or left between January 1991 and
     December 1993 because of plant or company closings or moves, insufficient work, or the abolishment of their positions
     or shifts.
       2 Data not shown where base is less than 75,000.
         NOTE:  Detail for the above race and Hispanic-origin groups will not sum to totals because data for the "other
     races" group are not presented and Hispanics are included in both the white and black population groups.  Data on
     displaced workers collected in the February 1994 supplement to the Current Population Survey (CPS) are not comparable
     with those from earlier surveys because of a major redesign of the survey implemented in January 1994 and the
     introduction of 1990 census-based population controls, adjusted for the estimated population undercount.  In
     addition, the displaced worker data reflect definitional changes, including the shortening of the reference period
     used in identifying displacement from 5 to 3 years.

       1 Data refer to persons who had 3 or more years of tenure on a job they had lost or left between January 1991 and
     December 1993 because of plant or company closings or moves, insufficient work, or the abolishment of their positions
     or shifts.
       2 Data not shown where base is less than 75,000.
         NOTE:  Detail for the above race and Hispanic-origin groups will not sum to totals because data for the "other
     races" group are not presented and Hispanics are included in both the white and black population groups.  Data on
     displaced workers collected in the February 1994 supplement to the Current Population Survey (CPS) are not comparable
     with those from earlier surveys because of a major redesign of the survey implemented in January 1994 and the
     introduction of 1990 census-based population controls, adjusted for the estimated population undercount.  In
     addition, the displaced worker data reflect definitional changes, including the shortening of the reference period
     used in identifying displacement from 5 to 3 years.

       1 Data refer to persons who had 3 or more years of tenure on a job they had lost or left between January 1991 and
     December 1993 because of plant or company closings or moves, insufficient work, or the abolishment of their positions or
     shifts.

         NOTE:  Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont compose the New England Division;
     New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania compose the Middle Atlantic Division; Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and
     Wisconsin compose the East North Central Division; Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South
     Dakota compose the West North Central Division; Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North
     Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia compose the South Atlantic Division; Alabama, Kentucky,
     Mississippi, and Tennessee compose the East South Central Division; Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas compose the
     West South Central Division; Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming compose the
     Mountain Division; Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon, and Washington compose the Pacific Division.  Data on displaced
     workers collected in the February 1994 supplement to the Current Population Survey (CPS) are not comparable with those
     from earlier surveys because of a major redesign of the survey implemented in January 1994 and the introduction of 1990
     census-based population controls, adjusted for the estimated population undercount.  In addition, the displaced worker
     data reflect definitional changes, including the shortening of the reference period used in identifying displacement
     from 5 to 3 years.  Dash represents zero.

       1 Data refer to persons who had 3 or more years of tenure on a full-time wage and salary job they had lost or left
     between January 1991 and December 1993 because of plant or company closings or moves, insufficient work, or the
     abolishment of their positions or shifts. 
       2 Includes about 221,000  persons who did not report earnings on lost job.
       3 Includes other industries, not shown separately
       4 Includes blast furnaces, steelworks, rolling and finishing mills, and iron and steel furnaces.
       5 Includes a small number who did not report industry.
         NOTE:  Data on displaced workers collected in the February 1994 supplement to the Current Population Survey (CPS)
     are not comparable with those from earlier surveys because of a major redesign of the survey implemented in January
     1994 and the introduction of 1990 census-based population controls, adjusted for the estimated population undercount. 
     In addition, the displaced worker data reflect definitional changes, including the shortening of the reference period
     used in identifying displacement from 5 to 3 years.  Dash represents zero.
