       NOTE:  Workers with traditional arrangements are those who do not fall into any of the "alternative
     arrangements" categories.  Detail may not add to totals because the total employed includes day laborers (an
     alternative arrangement, not shown separately) and a small number of workers who were both "on call" and
     "provided by contract firms."  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.  Dash represents zero.
