       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.
