For the 2004 and 2005 ACS, the percent of "Self-employed in own not incorporated business workers and unpaid family workers" in "Sales and office occupations" was incorrectly calculated in Table S2406, resulting in an underestimation of this percentage. No other data products were affected by this error. This error has been corrected for future releases of the ACS data files.

To calculate this percentage in the 2004 and 2005 Table S2406, divide the number of persons who are in "Sales and office occupations" within the "Self-employed in own not incorporated business workers and unpaid family workers" category as shown in Detailed Table B24060 by the total number of persons in the "Sales and office occupations" category as shown in Detailed Table B24060, then multiply that number by 100.

For guidance in calculating the standard error around this percentage, see page 19 of the ACS Accuracy of the Data (2006) document.
