Meet the Federal Workforce

Many people think only of Washington, D.C. when they hear "federal employees" but only 15% of the federal workforce lives and works in the Washington area. Did you know that nearly 15,000 federal employees work outside the 50 states? They work in Puerto Rico (10,849), Guam (2,823), Virgin Islands (708), Northern Mariana Islands (200), American Samoa (117) and even the Midway Islands (5).
