Choosing this option will allow you to show nonprofit data across all industries/fields of activity. When you choose this option, you will have two choices in the visualization stage:
TIP: To see how the nonprofit data variable you chose in Step One breaks down by industry in a pie chart, make sure that you have only selected a single geographic area (state or county). Select this option, and move on to Step Five, being sure to select only a single year. Note that this option is not available for the average weekly wage variable.
If you would like to compare total employment, establishments, total annual wage, or average weekly wage across states, counties, or years, select this option and move to Step Five.
Please select the fields of activity/industry that you would like to see.
Choose up to 5 industries to compare to each other.
You will be able to choose only those industries where nonprofit employment, wage, or establishment data are available for the geographic area(s) you selected in the previous step. Data for greyed out industries in the selection box are not available because either a) fewer than three nonprofits are operating in that field in the chosen geographical area(s) or b) a single nonprofit unit represents more than 80% of the total in the area. The Bureau of Labor Statistics legally mandates this data suppression because disclosure may allow identification of individual units reporting the data. For more on this, please see the methodology page.
The fields of activity listed here are based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes, which break activity into both 2-digit “parent” industries, and more specific 3-digit “sub-industries.” Use this toggle to change the sorting between alphabetical and hierarchical, with the 3-digit industries listed below their 2-digit parent. For more on NAICS please see Census.gov.
