       1 Data not shown where base is less than 100,000.
       NOTE:  Earnings data for contingent workers exclude the incorporated self-employed and independent
     contractors.  Data for independent contractors include the incorporated and unincorporated self-employed;
     these groups, however, are excluded from the data for workers with other arrangements.  Full- or part-time
     status is determined by hours usually worked at sole or primary job.  Dash represents zero.
