   1 Data refer to workers who can adjust their schedule or location instead of taking leave or because they need to take time
off from work.
   2 Estimates for the race groups (white, black or African American, and Asian) do not sum to totals because data are not
presented for all races.
   3 Persons of Hispanic or Latino ethnicity may be of any race.
   4 Health status was self-reported by individuals who participated in the survey.
   5 Class of worker estimates do not include self-employed incorporated workers.
   6 These values are based on usual weekly earnings. Each earnings range represents approximately 25 percent of full-time wage
and salary workers (except self-employed incorporated workers) who held only one job.
   7 Estimate is suppressed because it does not meet the American Time Use Survey publication standards.
   NOTE: Unless otherwise specified, data refer to wage and salary workers age 15 years and over. Self-employed workers whose
businesses are incorporated are classified as wage and salary workers.
