   1 Includes work at main job only and excludes travel related to work.
   2 Number was derived by multiplying the "Total employed" by the percent of employed persons who worked on an average weekday.
   3 Number was derived by multiplying the "Total employed" by the percent of employed persons who worked on an average Saturday, Sunday, and
holiday.
   4 Includes self-employed workers whose businesses are unincorporated. Self-employed workers whose businesses are incorporated are
classified as wage and salary workers.
   5 These values were generated using the 2010 Census occupational classification system which was introduced with the 2011 estimates.
Estimates are not strictly comparable to those from earlier years.
   6 These values are based on usual weekly earnings. The earnings data are limited to wage and salary workers (both incorporated and
unincorporated self-employed workers are excluded). Each earnings range represents approximately 25 percent of full-time wage and salary
workers who held only one job.
   7 Estimate is suppressed because it does not meet the American Time Use Survey publication standards.
   NOTE: Data refer to persons 15 years and over.
