Re: Time To Tell It Like It Is
These figures are from the from what's reported to our
federal government in terms of tax returns on businesses,
941 returns on employees, and etc for each NAICS category.
Obviously they don't include unreported income.
I think it's important to note that also, it DOESN'T include
businesses that have a prime NAICS category other than ones
starting with 81111X such as dealerships, tire stores, quick
lubes, glass shops, etc. There's a lot of general auto
repair going on inside of new car dealerships and tire
stores, as well as some quick lubes.
Because service work figures are internal numbers in
dealerships and tire stores, those numbers are impossible to
get as nationwide tallies.
Here's a partial hierarchical tree of the NAICS
classification of our related industries: http://autop.ro/9DY [autop.ro]
