       NOTE:  Workers with traditional arrangements are those who do not fall into any of the "alternative
     arrangements" categories.    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.
