NOTE: College or university degree or certificate programs are defined as programs for which participants were enrolled part-time or enrolled through a combination of part-time and full-time enrollments in the 12 months prior to the interview. Vocational or technical diploma, degree, certificate programs are defined as programs for which participants were enrolled part-time or enrolled through a combination of part-time and full-time enrollments in the 12 months prior to the interview. For adults who reported enrollment in multiple programs of a specific type, results were pooled across all of the programs of that type, e.g. two college/university programs pooled or two vocational or technical programs pooled. These questions were asked only of people who reported having worked sometime in the 12 months prior to the interview and were not self-employed only and who reported being employed during the time that they were taking the college or university degree or certificate program(s) or the vocational or technical diploma, degree, or certificate program(s). Data for these participants on receipt of employer support by selected adult characteristics are not consistently available because of small sample sizes and therefore they are not provided here.
