+ All of the data in this Table was changed to reflect only the General Schedule work force. The previously reported Related data of the General Schedule and Related data was added to the Other Pay Systems data.

## Some of the increase reflected in the GS workforce numbers in FY 2010 are due to agencies converting "pay for performance plan employees" (e.g. DOD's NSPS) back to the GS pay schedule.

* The remainder of the figures in this table include September 30, 2012 agency data as reported in CPDF, plus FERC and NIGC. Does not include data for AAFES, TVA, USPS, or intelligence gathering agencies. Percentages may not add to 100% due to rounding and the additional "Two or More Races" category in the 2000 Census Special EEO file.
** The numbers for 1997 - 2005 include totals for Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islanders.
*** Separate data first became available in 2006.
