CURRENT EMPLOYMENT STATISTICS (CES)

Monthly Estimates of Employment by Industry and Area  

Overview

Every month, Current Employment Statistics (CES) surveys business establishments in order to produce estimates of  employment, hours, and earnings data. CES data are compiled for all States, major metropolitan statistical areas (MSA), and the nation as a whole and broken down by industry according to the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS). CES is a federal-state cooperative program funded by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

CES Definition of Employment

CES defines employment as the number of employees receiving pay
for the pay period that includes the 12th of the month. This includes both full and part time employees, temporary employees, workers on paid sick or holiday leave, and those who worked for only part of the pay period. People included on multiple payrolls are counted at each establishment. CES data do not include: self-employed, farm workers, volunteers, unpaid family workers, employees on leave without pay, domestic workers, and those on strike for the entire pay period. Striking employees who work a portion of the survey period and are paid are counted in the survey.
