Not all agencies have data for demographic groups, due to small sample sizes.

Due to a data issue at the time of the 2013 release, Food Nutrition and Consumer Services was not ranked. Although the issue has been resolved, the wide distribution of the Best Places to Work data prevents us from amending the subcomponent rankings. However, we have included FNCS’s scores in the list.
