   1 Data refer to persons who had 3 or more years of tenure on a job they had lost or left between January
2011 and December 2013 because of plant or company closings or moves, insufficient work, or the abolishment of
their positions or shifts.
   2 Total includes a small number who did not report occupation.
   3 Data not shown where base is less than 75,000.
   NOTE: Beginning with displacement data for January 2012, occupations reflect the introduction of the 2010
Census occupational classification system into the Current Population Survey. This classification system is
derived from the 2010 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC). No historical data have been revised. Data
for 2012 are not strictly comparable with earlier years.
