   1 Data refer to persons who had 3 or more years of tenure on a job they had lost or left between January 2007
and December 2009 because of plant or company closings or moves, insufficient work, or the abolishment of their
positions or shifts.

because data are not presented for all races. Persons whose ethnicity is identified as Hispanic or Latino may be
of any race.
