       NOTE: Data refer to employed persons in nonagricultural industries.  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 identified as Hispanic or Latino may be of any race and, therefore, are classified by ethnicity as well as by
     race.  Dash represents or rounds to zero.
