More grim jobs data on lawyers

From Professor Tamanaha once again.   I wonder about three things in this data:  (1) what number of law school graduates found jobs as lawyers more than 9 months out? (2) what number of law school graduates employed as lawyers simply weren't counted or didn't report?  and (3) what number of law school graduates voluntarily left the legal profession (as opposed to being unable to find work as a lawyer)?  If anyone knows, e-mail me.   The assumption of Tamanaha and others seems to be that this data overstates employment outcomes, and it may, but I do wonder what the answers are to the latter questions.
