Additional Notes:

  • N/A Industry Jobs – In 2012, the United States Census Bureau updated the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). In the new definitions some industries were combined into new industries which means they will be obsolete when we make the transition to the 2014.4 release. We are unable to report the jobs related to those industries during this transition to the new NAICS definitions.
