Discussed issues around the representation of members of the civilian non-institutional population.  Clearly we need to represent people that are of legal working age differently from what we've done in the restriction on that class.  We agreed to create a separate class for this, called LegalWorkingAgePerson - person whose age is greater than some number with respect to their ability to work legally (not the same as the age of majority) as specified in the jurisdiction in which they reside.  This begs the question, how do we know where they live/work?  And, does that mean we need to add the concept of residency to Person (we have hasAddress PhysicalAddress, but that's not the same thing).  The BLS definition says that they reside in the US at the time of the survey, but that says nothing about citizenship/permanent residency, temporary residence, etc.  It does include people that reside in the US that are foreign citizens, which implies that they don't have to be permanent resident ...  for that matter, 'reside' just says that you live in the U.S. and says nothing about the legality of that residency, i.e., whether or not you have some sort of visa that allows you to work in the U.S. / study in the U.S., etc.

We likely need a class that defines Residency - a person in the U.S. on vacation is not a resident, for example.  Even someone that is homeless is a local resident with respect to services they receive, for example so residency is different from address.  One definition of residency is 'A duration of stay required by state and local laws that entitles a person to the legal protection and benefits provided by applicable statutes.'  So what we need to determine residency relates to jurisdiction and to where someone resides ... need to do a bit more research to understand what is meant by duration ... but could simply link the person to the jurisdiction in which they reside.

Might need to revise the definition of jurisdiction as well...
