Industry Employment Information

MERIC in cooperation with U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics provides three types of industry employment information: ES202, LDB and CES. These numbers are statistical estimates. Due to different data collection methods and the recent conversion from SIC to NAICS the values for overlapping data may not match.

Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW)

The Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages Program is a cooperative program involving the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) of the U.S. Department of Labor and the State Workforce Agencies (SWA's). The program produces a comprehensive tabulation of employment and wage information for workers covered by State unemployment insurance (UI) laws and Federal workers covered by the Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees (UCFE) program. Publicly available files include data on the number of establishments, monthly employment, and quarterly wages, by NAICS industry and by ownership (Private, Federal, State or Local Government). Data for various geographic levels including counties are available.

Business Employment Dynamics

Business Employment Dynamics is a set of statistics generated from the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages program. These quarterly data series consist of gross job gain and gross job loss statistics from 1992 forward. These data help to provide a picture of the dynamic state of the labor market for the nation and Missouri.

Current Employment Statistics

This survey of payroll records covers over 300,000 businesses on a monthly basis and provides detailed industry data on employment, hours, and earnings of workers on nonfarm payrolls for the States and Nation.
