Say there were 50 women and 100 men in the work force, and each women worked two jobs (men only one). The [Current Employment Statistics] would report 200 payroll positions; half for men, and half for women. The [Current Population Survey] would report 150 people had jobs, 50 women and 100 men. Would it be correct to say there were as many women in the work force as men? No.
