       NOTE:  Noncontingent workers are those who do not fall into any estimate of "contingent" workers. 
     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.  In addition, persons whose ethnicity is Hispanic or Latino may be of
     any race and, therefore, are classified by ethnicity as well as by race.  Detail for other characteristics may
     not sum to totals due to rounding.
