   1 Includes work at main job only and at locations other than home or workplace. Excludes travel related to work.
   2 Individuals may have worked at more than one location.
   3 "Working at home" includes any time persons did work at home and is not restricted to persons whose usual workplace is their home.
   4 Includes self-employed workers whose businesses are unincorporated. Self-employed workers whose businesses are incorporated are
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.
