Figure 5B

Distribution of employment, by industry, selected years, 1979–2011 (and 2020 projections)

Note: Data for health care (which includes social assistance services, which is a very small share of the category) and education services are excluded from the figure in 1979 and 1989 because disaggregated data were not available for these industries.
