The trade group "Other" consists of miscellaneous trades and occupations not classified elsewhere. Many of the new apprenticeship trades and occupations that have been introduced since the 1990s have been added to this group. Because of the smaller number and inconsistency in this group, it has been excluded from analysis.
Totals may not add up because of rounding.
