Footnotes:
(1) Data refer to members of a labor union or an employee association similar to a union, as well as workers who are not members but whose jobs are covered by a union or employee association contract.
 

NOTES: Data refer to the sole or principal job of full- and part-time workers. All self-employed workers are excluded, regardless of whether their businesses are incorporated. Data are based on one-fourth of the full sample (the outgoing rotation groups). As a result, employment levels may not match the official annual average employment figures issued by the Local Area Unemployment Statistics program.
