This section reports the number of jobs the occupation provided in 2000 (sorry, the info is provided by the U.S. government and this is the most recent info we have) and the key industries where these jobs are found. When significant, the geographic distribution of jobs and the proportion of part-time (less than 35 hours a week) and self-employed workers in the occupation are mentioned. Self-employed workers accounted for nearly eight percent of the work force in 2000; however, they were concentrated in a small number of occupations, such as farmers and ranchers, childcare workers, lawyers, health practitioners, and the construction trades.
