Notes: The overall share of Indiana workers without paid sick leave was most recently estimated for 2013 in IWPR and NPWF 2015. To update this value, we apply the change in access rates for the Midwest between 2014 and 2019 from BLS NCS 2021. To estimate access rates by gender and race/ethnicity we apply the ratio of access for that demographic group to the overall access rate using estimates from IWPR 2016. AAPI stands for Asian American/Pacific Islander.
