Background Note: "This series consists of employment for those firms, organizations and individuals whose employees are covered by the Washington Unemployment Insurance Act. Covered employment excludes self-employed workers, proprietors, CEOs, etc., and other non-insured workers. Typically, covered employment has represented 85-90% of total employment. The employment data represents the number of jobs during March of the given year. Note that this includes part-time and temporary employment, and if a worker holds more than one job, each job would appear in the database."  - Puget Sound Regional Council
