   1 Annual wages have been calculated by multiplying the hourly mean wage by a
"year-round, full-time" hours figure of 2,080 hours; for those occupations an 
hourly mean wage is not published, the annual wage has been directly calculated
from the reported survey data.

   2 Detail may not add to totals due to rounding.

   3 Less than 0.05 percent.

   NOTE: Data represent occupational employment and wages for establishments that
received all of their revenue from green goods and services. Establishments that
did not generate revenue, such as government establishments, nonprofits, or
startups without positive revenue, reported all of their employment associated
with the production of green goods or provision of green services.
