Changes to 2012 E&W Tables
The Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) has published the
Employment and Wages Annual Bulletin for much of the programís history.
The E&W, as it is commonly known, was for many years the primary public
source of QCEW data. It became a legacy product as online tools and the
QCEW quarterly news release became available. The E&W has evolved from
a dense book of tables, to a thin, heavily illustrated chart book, to an
entirely web published product.
The newest improvement to the E&W comes in the form of interactive
tables. The replacement tables include monthly employment and quarterly
establishment and wage data for more series. The new tables include wage
information for size data tables, which had not been available in the old
tables. They will appear with the release of the 2012 Employment and
Wages Annual Bulletin, shortly after the release of final 2012 data on
September 26, 2013.
E&W Tables 1-10, (which presented annual average and size data) will
be replaced with tables that provide additional content, using a new
layout. For tabulation of levels, users will be directed to new
interactive web tables developed by QCEW. The first version of these
tables was released in May 2013. The second version will load much faster
and will include size data. QCEW will continue to develop enhancements of
the new tables and will announce them as they become available. Users
interested in measures of change will be directed to the QCEW section of
the multi-screen data retrieval tool.
E&W Tables 11-15 were based on the
QCEW and Business Employment
Dynamics (BED) news releases.
Users will be directed to the actual news release tables via direct links.
