The data in this table are based on the 2004 Nonemployer Statistics. These data are subject to nonsampling error due to nonresponse, coverage problems, misreporting, and processing error. The Nonemployer totals may be low due to late tax reporting in hurricane impacted counties/regions. Data users who create their own estimates using data from this report should cite the Census Bureau as the source of the original data only.
