  1 GGS-OCC data for construction include the following North American Industry Classification System
(NAICS) industries: Construction of buildings (NAICS 236); Water and sewer line and related structures
construction (NAICS 237110); Power and communication line and related structures construction (NAICS 237130);
Land subdivision (NAICS 237210); Other heavy and civil engineering construction (NAICS 237990); and Specialty
trade contractors (NAICS 238). For more information on the industry scope for the GGS-OCC estimates, see the
Technical Note.

  2 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 where  an hourly mean wage is not published, the annual wage has
been directly calculated from the reported survey data.

  3 Occupations listed will not sum to all-occupations total because the total includes occupations for which
data are not shown.

   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.
