      • UCFE federal agency employment
      • Supplementary employer surveys by state LMI offices

        • Personal income
        • State and national product
      • Local planning
        • Only consistent source of county employment and wages by industry
      • Analysis requiring universe or detailed data
      • The Current Employment Statistics (CES) Program
      • Covered employment from QCEW, supplemented with non-covered adjustments, is used to benchmark levels.
      • A monthly employer survey is a major part of the program, using a variety of collection methods.
      • A primary economic indicator of employment, earnings, and working hours for national, state, and selected areas
      • Total employment growth used by Federal Reserve
      • Incorporated in preliminary estimates of National Product and Income
      • Incorporated into productivity estimates
      • And now on to…
      • The Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) Program
      • OES: An employer survey which produces employment and wage-rate estimates by occupation and industry for states and areas
      • BLS and ETA originally shared responsibility with the states.
      • When BLS took total federal responsibility for the program, existing funds were spread over all states.
      • Data developed with most current 3 years of data
      • Surveys conducted twice annually
      • Employment by occupation tallied for each detailed industry
      • Staffing ratios developed representing each occupation’s share of industry employment
      • Data tallied by wage ranges
      • Wage-rate averages generated by weighted interpolations
      • Prior data aged (brought up to date) by other BLS wage survey trends (ECI)
      • ETA funded but tied to OES
      • Composed of adjusted OES staffing ratios applied to industry employment projections
      • Short-term projections — 2 years out
      • Long-term projections: 10 years out
      • Technical assistance available at the following site: dev.projectionscentral.com
      • The fourth BLS program is …
      • The LAUS Program
      • Which stands for Local Area Unemployment Statistics
      • Less erratic trend than direct CPS monthly state estimates
      • Cheaper than direct CPS estimates
      • Predicts annual averages more accurately than handbook-trended estimates
      • Note: U.S. data comes directly from the CPS, not from a model.
      • Handbook method - used to allocate labor market areas (LMAs) from state estimates
      • Population-claims method used where possible for estimates of LMA parts
      • Census-share method used for parts of LMAs when claims are not available
      • No statistical measures of precision
      • Lastly, we come to …
      • The Mass Layoff Statistics (MLS) Program
      • Began life as PMLPC in 1984 under JTPA
      • Renamed Mass Layoff Statistics in 1989
      • Intent: To track serious layoffs and closings by industry
        • Not very useful for Rapid Response
        • Good post-occurrence analytical tool
      • Many states don’t have enough activity to publish data
