Full-time and Part-time Employment by Industry

Summary: Average annual number of jobs, full-time plus part-time

This database reports the average annual number of jobs, full-time plus part-time for counties. Each job that a person holds is counted at full weight. The estimates are largely by place of work.


Employment is based on the North American Industry Classification System categories (NAICS).  Estimates of employment for 2001-2006 are based on the 2002 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS); estimates for 2007-2010 are based on the 2007 NAICS; estimates since 2012 are based on the 2012 NAICS.  Estimates from 2001 reflect the results of the comprehensive revision to the national income and product accounts (NIPAs) released in July 2013.
