Note: Because of rounding, sector employment changes may not sum to totals. May 2007–May 2016 sector employment changes reflect changes to the industry classification of local government gambling establishments and casino hotels. These establishments were previously classified in federal, state, and local government but, beginning with the May 2014 OES estimates, were moved to the arts, entertainment, and recreation and accommodation and food services sectors. Local government gambling establishments had May 2016 employment of 129,020 in the arts, entertainment, and recreation sector and 69,030 in the accommodation and food services sector. Data for federal, state, and local government exclude state and local government schools and hospitals, which are included in the educational services and healthcare and social assistance sectors, respectively.
