Footnotes
(1) Usually work 35 hours or more per week at all jobs.
(2) Usually work less than 35 hours per week at all jobs.
(3) Includes never married; married, spouse absent; divorced; separated; and widowed persons.

NOTE: Own children include sons, daughters, step-children, and adopted children. Not included are nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and other related and unrelated children. Detail may not sum to totals due to rounding. Updated population controls are introduced annually with the release of January data. Data for 2012 and 2013 reflect improved methodology that provides more accurate estimates of the number of mothers and fathers and, as a result, are not strictly comparable with data for previous years. Data for 2012 incorporate the new methodology; therefore, 2012 estimates do not match those published in the "Employment Characteristics of Families--2012" news release.
