I am trying to estimate the direct employment associated with a public airport that is owned and operated by a County government (not the one where the airport is located). The airport employs about 200-250 people - are this somehow added into "Air Transportation (408)" or "Scenic and sightseeing transportation and support activities for transportation (414)" (which includes "Airport Operations")? The "Air Transportation" sector (which should be limited to airlines and for San Bernardino Co. shows 1,416 employees for 2013 while the BLS data (private only) shows only 1,174 (a difference of 242). Similarly, how would Federal air traffic controllers be categorized? Many thanks
