    "Out of the 1.5 million who languished in the job market, about half were underemployed, an increase from the previous year.

    BROKEN DOWN BY OCCUPATION, young college graduates were heavily represented in jobs that require a high school diploma or less."

    What is actually broken down by occupation? Is it a dangling modifier?

    Here's an example for you right off the top of my head:

    We miss the target by 100 feet RMS. Here's the breakdown:

    1) 20 feet due to gyro bias errors

    2) 25 feet due to gyro scale factor errors

    3) 10 feet due to gyro white noise.

    4) 10 feet due to gyro g-sensitive errors

    5) 5 feet due to accelerometer bias errors

    6) 15 feet due to accelerometer scale factor errors

    7) 15 feet due to cross-axis coupling

    I have 'broken down' the miss distance by error source.

    OK?

    Thank you Robert.

    Could this:

    BROKEN DOWN BY OCCUPATION, THE DATA SHOW THAT young college graduates were heavily represented in jobs that require a high school diploma or less."

    be the standard English version of:

    BROKEN DOWN BY OCCUPATION, young college graduates were heavily represented in jobs that require a high school diploma or less."
