Supplementary notes

* Including full-time and part-time employees. Full-time work is defined as 35 or more hours per week, and part-time is defined as less than 35 hours per week.
** Data from 1998-2011 was taken from the Burea of Economic Analysis.
The data includes the annual average number of persons 15 years old and over in the civilian non-institutional population who were employed as hired farm managers, supervisors, or laborers. Employment estimates are based on 12 monthly Current Population Survey microdata files.
Note: the sum of fulltime and part-time workers (as this statistic was calculated) is not equal to the actual total because the usual hours worked varies for some individuals.
