That's also not accurate. A large percentage of Puerto Ricans don't report employment statistics, since they work in a lot of business/industries that try to avoid paying state taxes, and there is a lot of unreported income.
Many companies like Best Buy, JCPenneys, and Sams Club were at first very reluctant to start business in the island, because of the employment/income statistics. However, once they opened, their stores located in PR became one of the most successful ones in the whole US.
