Data include Alaska and Hawaii beginning 1959. This inclusion has resulted in an in­
crease of 212,000 (0.4 percent) in the nonagricultural total for the March 1959
benchmark month.

NOTE: Data from April 1980 forward are subject to revision when more recent bench­
mark data are introduced. See "Benchmark adjustment" in the Explanatory notes of
this publication.
