Employment is reported by place of work and excludes self-employed persons, unpaid family workers, domestics, volunteers and those involved in labor-management trade disputes. These data are based on 1987 Standard Industrial Classifications. Annual Average industry detail may not add up to totals due to independent rounding. Government data include all civilian government employees regardless of the activities in which they are engaged.
