    \1\ Data from the establishment 
survey. Includes all full- and part-
time wage and salary workers in 
nonagricultural establishments who 
received pay for any part of the pay 
period that includes the 12th of the 
month. Excludes proprietors, self-
employed persons, unpaid family 
workers, and private household 
workers. Data from the household 
survey shown on p. 11 include those 
workers and also count persons as 
employed when they are not at work 
because of industrial disputes, bad 
weather, etc., even if they are not 
paid for the time off. In the series 
shown here, persons who work at more 
than one job are counted each time 
they appear on a payroll, in 
contrast to the series shown on p. 
11 where persons are counted only 
once--as employed, unemployed, or 
not in the labor force. See 
Employment and Earnings for details.
    \2\ Includes mining and logging, 
not shown separately.
    \3\ Includes wholesale trade, 
transportation and warehousing, and 
utilities, not shown separately.
    Note.--Data classified by 
industry based on the 2007 North 
American Industry Classification 
System (NAICS). For details see  
Employment and Earnings.
