In the spring of 2021, the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) program will begin using the name Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics (OEWS) to better reflect the range of data available from the program. Data released on or after March 31, 2021 will reflect the new program name. Data collection materials, including forms, emails, and letters, will be updated for employers in the May 2021 survey panel. Webpages, publications, and other materials associated with previous data releases will retain the Occupational Employment Statistics name.
