      • BLS Cooperative Programs
    • The Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW)
    • UI quarterly contribution reports

      • 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
