NOTE: not all data elements can be aggregated. Some variables (e.g. but not limited to Employment) show multiple occupations. Summing these numbers runs the risk of double counting. Occupation groups were selected based on both CPI/SOC codes and searches for keywords. Not all occupations within an occupation group are shown here, only the more relevant ones are included.
