Nonemployer Statistics originate from tax return information of the Internal Revenue Service. The 2004 and 2005 Nonemployer totals may be low due to late tax reporting in hurricane impacted counties/regions. The data are subject to nonsampling error such as errors of self-classification by industry on tax forms, as well as errors of response, nonreporting and coverage. Values provided by each firm are slightly modified to protect the respondent's confidentiality. For further information about methodology and data limitations, see Survey Methodology. For descriptions of column headings and rows (industries), click on the appropriate underlined element in the table.
