   2 Number was derived by multiplying the "Total employed" by the percent of employed persons who worked on an average weekday.
   3 Number was derived by multiplying the "Total employed" by the percent of employed persons who worked on an average Saturday, Sunday, and
holiday.

classified as wage and salary workers.
   5 2011 estimates mark the introduction of the 2010 Census occupational classification system into the American Time Use Survey. This
classification system is derived from the 2010 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC). No historical data have been revised. Data for 2011
are not strictly comparable with earlier years.
   6 These values are based on usual weekly earnings. The earnings data are limited to wage and salary workers (both incorporated and
unincorporated self-employed workers are excluded). Each earnings range represents approximately 25 percent of full-time wage and salary
workers who held only one job.
   7 Estimate is suppressed because it does not meet the American Time Use Survey publication standards.
NOTE: Data refer to persons 15 years and over.
