(2) Includes a small number of persons who work part time on their primary job and full time on their secondary job(s), not shown separately.

NOTE: Full time is 35 hours or more per week; part time is 1 to 34 hours per week. 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. Persons whose ethnicity is identified as Hispanic or Latino may be of any race. Updated population controls are introduced annually with the release of January data. Dash indicates no data or data that do not meet publication criteria (values not shown where base is less than 75,000).
