The count covers jobs filled by employees who are paid for any part of the week that includes the 12th day of the month. It is a count of jobs by place of work, not people. Individuals can be counted multiple times if they hold more than one job. Individuals not included: the self-employed, unpaid volunteer or family workers, domestic workers in households, military personnel, people who are laid off, on leave without pay or on strike for the entire reference period.
