Notes: All but one of the domestic worker occupations are defined in exactly the same way here as they are defined elsewhere in the chartbook. The only difference is that here, due to data limitations, workers who provide child care in their own homes are defined as any child care workers who are self-employed (either incorporated or unincorporated). In the rest of our analysis, the definition of workers who provide child care in their own homes is somewhat more restrictive: child care workers who work in the child day care services industry who are self-employed but not incorporated.
