The multiple jobholding rate decreased from 5.8 percent in 1999 to 5.6 percent in 2000. This reflected declines in the rates for both men and women.

For men, the multiple jobholding rate decreased from 5.7 percent in 1999 to 5.5 percent in 2000. For women, the rate fell from 6.0 percent in 1999 to 5.7 percent in 2000.

These data are a product of the Current Population Survey. Multiple jobholders are employed persons who had either two or more jobs as a wage and salary worker, were self-employed and also held a wage and salary job, or worked as an unpaid family worker and also held a wage and salary job. More information on multiple jobholding in 1999 and 2000 can be found in Table 36 of the January 2001 Employment and Earnings. (Additional information for 1997 and 1998 can be found here.)
