          Employees (UCFE) programs.
          
            2 Includes data for Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA) and Primary Metropolitan Statistical Areas (PMSA)
          as defined by OMB Bulletin No. 99-04.  In the New England areas, the New England County Metropolitan Area
          (NECMA) definitions were used.  See Technical Note.
          
            3 Data are preliminary.  Each year's total is based on the MSA definition for the specific year.  Annual
          changes include differences resulting from changes in MSA definitions.
            
            4 Annual pay levels for individual metropolitan areas have been adjusted to reflect noneconomic county
          reclassifications where applicable.  The total for all metropolitan areas combined, however, has not been
          adjusted for these reclassifications.  See Technical Note.
          
            5 Totals do not include the six MSAs within Puerto Rico.
          
            6 Data do not meet BLS or State agency disclosure standards.
