NOTE: Work-related courses or training are defined as any formal courses or training taken in the 12 months prior to the interview that had an instructor present and were related to job or career, whether or not the respondent had a job when he or she took them. Information was collected on up to four work-related courses or training taken in the 12 months prior to the interview. If an adult took more than four courses or training, four were sampled for data collection. 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 work-related courses or training. Details may not sum to totals because of rounding.
