       NOTE: Data refer to employed persons in nonagricultural industries who reported that they work at home as part of their primary
     job.  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.
