Please note: Employment data is based on the number of San Diego County residents who report (in an anonymous, random-sample survey) having a job. Jobs data is based on mandatory government reporting from San Diego County businesses. Multiple factors can contribute to a difference between these numbers, including survey margin or error, individuals with multiple jobs, and individuals who live in San Diego County by work elsewhere or vice versa.
