Summary Tables for March 1984 thru 2007


Technical Notes

The questionnaire requested information concerning total employment, and employment distribution by sex, full-time/part-time, and citizenship status.

The employment data derived from the Annual Census of Establishments (ACE) for March of each year was collected on survey forms mailed to reporting units on Guam. Extensive efforts were made to obtain a complete count of all employees. A comprehensive delinquency control system is employed which results in a very low overall non-response rates. 

INDUSTRIAL CLASSIFICATION

Employment statistics in this report are classified in accordance with the Standard Industrial Classification Manual (SIC), 1987 edition, prepared by the Statistical Policy Division, Office of Management and Budget, Executive Office of the President. Prior yearís ACE data were classified with the 1972 classification system so that time series constructed using both periods will not be directly comparable for some industries although the employment reclassification changes at the division level is negligible.

Reporting establishments are classified into significant economic groups by assigning a four-digit SIC code, on the basis of major products or activity as determined by the establishmentsí percent of total sales or receipts for the previous calendar year. All data for an establishment making more than one product or engaging in more than one activity are classified under the industry of the most important product or activity based on the percentages reported.

SURVEY QUESTIONNAIRE DEFINITIONS

EMPLOYMENT. Employed persons include both permanent and temporary employees and those who work either full-time or part-time during a specified payroll period. Workers on an establishment payroll who are paid sick leave (when pay is received directly from the employer), on paid holiday or paid vacation, or who work during only a part of the specified pay period are counted as employed. Persons on the payroll of more than one establishment during the pay period are counted in each establishment which reports them, whether the duplication is due to turnover or multiple job-holding. Persons are considered employed if they receive pay for any part of the specified pay period, but they are not considered employed if they receive no pay at all for the pay period. Since proprietor, the self-employed, and unpaid family workers do not have the status of ìpaid employeesî, they are not included. Domestic workers in households are also excluded. Federal Government employment statistics refer to civilian employees only.
