Note: To correct for changes in the sample frame and firm classification after 2000 and make results consistent over time, the authors have excluded firms with less than 10 employees. In calculating exporters’ share of total employment, the authors have also made adjustments to post-2000 data to reflect changes in the population covered by the Annual Survey of Manufactures that occurred in 2000.
