Note: This is a research series and will not match the official employment estimates in BLS publications or the BLS website databases.
This research series reflects seasonally adjusted Current Population Survey employment levels that have been smoothed to minimize the effects of level shifts from population control adjustments in the official series in January 2000 and January of 2003–2013.
Data from 1990–1999 were smoothed for the Census 2000 population control adjustment.
Data from 2000–2010 were smoothed for the effects of intercensal adjustments to the Census 2000 population base that occurred in January 2003–2011.
Data from 2000–2011 were smoothed for the 2010 Census population adjustment made in January 2012.
Data from 2010–2012 were smoothed for the intercensal adjustment to the 2010 Census population base made in January 2013.

Data from January 2009–December 2012 were revised in January 2014 to reflect new seasonal adjustment factors.
