From June 2009 to June 2010, employment declined in 192 of the 326 largest U.S. 
counties according to preliminary data, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 
today. Yolo, Calif., and Marion, Fla., posted the largest percentage decline, with a 
loss of 3.7 percent each over the year, compared with a national job decrease of 0.2 
percent. Within Yolo, the largest employment decline occurred in trade, 
transportation, and utilities, which lost 843 jobs over the year (-4.4 percent). In 
Marion, financial activities had the largest over-the-year decrease in employment, 
shedding 1,495 jobs (-27.1 percent). Elkhart, Ind., experienced the largest over-
the-year percentage increase in employment among the largest counties in the U.S. 
with a gain of 9.3 percent.  
 
The U.S. average weekly wage increased over the year by 3.0 percent to $865 in the 
second quarter of 2010. Among the large counties in the U.S., Santa Clara, Calif., 
had the largest over-the-year increase in average weekly wages in the second quarter 
of 2010, with a gain of 10.6 percent. Within Santa Clara, manufacturing had the 
largest impact on the county’s over-the-year increase in average weekly wages. Fort 
Bend, Texas, experienced the largest decline in average weekly wages with a loss of 
1.7 percent over the year. County employment and wage data are compiled under the 
Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program.

Large County Employment 
 
In June 2010, national employment, as measured by the QCEW program, was 129.4 
million, down by 0.2 percent from June 2009. The 326 U.S. counties with 75,000 or 
more employees accounted for 70.7 percent of total U.S. employment and 71.5 percent 
of total wages. These 326 counties had a net job decline of 350,897 over the year, 
accounting for 126.9 percent of the overall U.S. employment decrease. 
 
Yolo, Calif., and Marion, Fla., both had the largest percentage decline in 
employment among the largest U.S. counties. The top five counties with the greatest 
employment level declines (Los Angeles, Calif.; Maricopa, Ariz.; Cook, Ill.; Clark, 
Nev.; and Sacramento, Calif.) had a combined over-the-year loss of 142,500, or 51.1 
percent of the employment decline for the U.S. (See table A.) 
 
Employment rose in 120 of the large counties from June 2009 to June 2010. Elkhart, 
Ind., had the largest over-the-year percentage increase in employment (9.3 percent) 
in the nation. Manufacturing was the largest contributor to the increase in 
employment. In Elkhart, employment declines exceeded 10 percent from third quarter 
of 2008 through third quarter of 2009. Employment rebounded in December 2009, and 
strong job growth continued through this quarter. Kings, N.Y., experienced the 
second largest employment increase, followed by Allen, Ind.; Ottawa, Mich.; Macomb, 
Mich.; Arlington, Va.; and Benton, Wash.

For More Information 
 
The tables included in this release contain data for the nation and for the 326 U.S. 
counties with annual average employment levels of 75,000 or more in 2009. June 2010 
employment and 2010 second quarter average weekly wages for all states are provided 
in table 3 of this release. 
 
The employment and wage data by county are compiled under the QCEW program, also 
known as the ES-202 program. The data are derived from reports submitted by every 
employer subject to unemployment insurance (UI) laws. The 9.0 million employer 
reports cover 129.4 million full- and part- time workers. For additional information 
about the quarterly employment and wages data, please read the Technical Note. Data 
for the second quarter of 2010 will be available later at http://www.bls.gov/cew/. 
Additional information about the QCEW data may be obtained by calling (202) 691-
6567. 
 
Several BLS regional offices are issuing QCEW news releases targeted to local data 
users. For links to these releases, see http://www.bls.gov/cew/cewregional.htm. 
_____________   
The County Employment and Wages release for third quarter 2010 is scheduled to be 
released on Tuesday, March 29, 2011. 






Technical Note 
 
 
These data are the product of a federal-state cooperative program, the Quarterly 
Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program, also known as the ES-202 program. 
The data are derived from summaries of employment and total pay of workers covered 
by state and federal unemployment insurance (UI) legislation and provided by State 
Workforce Agencies (SWAs). The summaries are a result of the administration of 
state unemployment insurance programs that require most employers to pay quarterly 
taxes based on the employment and wages of workers covered by UI. QCEW data in this 
release are based on the 2007 North American Industry Classification System. Data 
for 2010 are preliminary and subject to revision. 

For purposes of this release, large counties are defined as having employment le-
vels of 75,000 or greater. In addition, data for San Juan, Puerto Rico, are pro-
vided, but not used in calculating U.S. averages, rankings, or in the analysis in 
the text. Each year, these large counties are selected on the basis of the prelimi-
nary annual average of employment for the previous year. The 327 counties presented 
in this release were derived using 2009 preliminary annual averages of employment. 
For 2010 data, two counties have been added to the publication tables: St. Tammany
Parish, La., and Benton, Wash. These counties will be included in all 2010 quarter-
ly releases. Ten counties, Shelby, Ala.; Butte, Calif.; Tippecanoe, Ind.; Johnson, 
Iowa; Saratoga, N.Y.; Trumbull, Ohio; Warren, Ohio; Kent, R.I.; Gregg, Texas; and 
Racine, Wis., which were published in the 2009 releases, will be excluded from this 
and future 2010 releases because their 2009 annual average employment levels were 
less than 75,000. The counties in table 2 are selected and sorted each year based 
on the annual average employment from the preceding year. 

The preliminary QCEW data presented in this release may differ from data released 
by the individual states. These potential differences result from the states' con-
tinuing receipt of UI data over time and ongoing review and editing. The individual 
states determine their data release timetables. 
 
Differences between QCEW, BED, and CES employment measures 

The Bureau publishes three different establishment-based employment measures for 
any given quarter. Each of these measures--QCEW, Business Employment Dynamics (BED), 
and Current Employment Statistics (CES)--makes use of the quarterly UI employment 
reports in producing data; however, each measure has a somewhat different universe 
coverage, estimation procedure, and publication product. 

Differences in coverage and estimation methods can result in somewhat different 
measures of employment change over time. It is important to understand program dif-
ferences and the intended uses of the program products. (See table.) Additional in-
formation on each program can be obtained from the program Web sites shown in the 
table.

(UCFE) program, employment and wage data are compiled from quarterly reports sub-
mitted by four major federal payroll processing centers on behalf of all federal 
agencies, with the exception of a few agencies which still report directly to the 
individual SWA. In addition to the quarterly contribution reports, employers who 
operate multiple establishments within a state complete a questionnaire, called the 
"Multiple Worksite Report," which provides detailed information on the location and 
industry of each of their establishments. QCEW employment and wage data are derived 
from microdata summaries of 9.0 million employer reports of employment and wages 
submitted by states to the BLS in 2009. These reports are based on place of employ-
ment rather than place of residence. 

UI and UCFE coverage is broad and has been basically comparable from state to state 
since 1978, when the 1976 amendments to the Federal Unemployment Tax Act became ef-
fective, expanding coverage to include most State and local government employees. 
In 2009, UI and UCFE programs covered workers in 128.6 million jobs. The estimated 
123.6 million workers in these jobs (after adjustment for multiple jobholders) 
represented 95.1 percent of civilian wage and salary employment. Covered workers 
received $5.859 trillion in pay, representing 93.4 percent of the wage and salary 
component of personal income and 41.5 percent of the gross domestic product. 

Major exclusions from UI coverage include self-employed workers, most agricultural 
workers on small farms, all members of the Armed Forces, elected officials in most 
states, most employees of railroads, some domestic workers, most student workers at 
schools, and employees of certain small nonprofit organizations. 

State and federal UI laws change periodically. These changes may have an impact on 
the employment and wages reported by employers covered under the UI program. Cover-
age changes may affect the over-the-year comparisons presented in this news re-
lease. 
 
Concepts and methodology 

Monthly employment is based on the number of workers who worked during or received 
pay for the pay period including the 12th of the month. With few exceptions, all 
employees of covered firms are reported, including production and sales workers, 
corporation officials, executives, supervisory personnel, and clerical workers.  
Workers on paid vacations and part-time workers also are included. 

Average weekly wage values are calculated by dividing quarterly total wages by the 
average of the three monthly employment levels (all employees, as described above) 
and dividing the result by 13, for the 13 weeks in the quarter. These calculations 
are made using unrounded employment and wage values. The average wage values that 
can be calculated using rounded data from the BLS database may differ from the av-
erages reported. Included in the quarterly wage data are non-wage cash payments 
such as bonuses, the cash value of meals and lodging when supplied, tips and other 
gratuities, and, in some states, employer contributions to certain deferred compen-
sation plans such as 401(k) plans and stock options. Over-the-year comparisons of 
average weekly wages may reflect fluctuations in average monthly employment and/or 
total quarterly wages between the current quarter and prior year levels. 

Average weekly wages are affected by the ratio of full-time to part-time workers as 
well as the number of individuals in high-paying and low-paying occupations and the 
incidence of pay periods within a quarter. For instance, the average weekly wage of 
the work force could increase significantly when there is a large decline in the 
number of employees that had been receiving below-average wages. Wages may include 
payments to workers not present in the employment counts because they did not work 
during the pay period including the 12th of the month. When comparing average week-
ly wage levels between industries, states, or quarters, these factors should be 
taken into consideration. 

Federal government pay levels are subject to periodic, sometimes large, fluctua-
tions due to a calendar effect that consists of some quarters having more pay pe-
riods than others. Most federal employees are paid on a biweekly pay schedule. As a 
result of this schedule, in some quarters, federal wages contain payments for six 
pay periods, while in other quarters their wages include payments for seven pay pe-
riods. Over-the-year comparisons of average weekly wages may reflect this calendar 
effect. Higher growth in average weekly wages may be attributed, in part, to a com-
parison of quarterly wages for the current year, which include seven pay periods, 
with year-ago wages that reflect only six pay periods. An opposite effect will oc-
cur when wages in the current period, which contain six pay periods, are compared 
with year-ago wages that include seven pay periods. The effect on over-the-year pay 
comparisons can be pronounced in federal government due to the uniform nature of 
federal payroll processing. This pattern may exist in private sector pay; however, 
because there are more pay period types (weekly, biweekly, semimonthly, monthly) it 
is less pronounced. The effect is most visible in counties with large concentra-
tions of federal employment. 

In order to ensure the highest possible quality of data, states verify with employ-
ers and update, if necessary, the industry, location, and ownership classification 
of all establishments on a 4-year cycle. Changes in establishment classification 
codes resulting from this process are introduced with the data reported for the 
first quarter of the year. Changes resulting from improved employer reporting also 
are introduced in the first quarter. 

QCEW data are not designed as a time series. QCEW data are simply the sums of indi-
vidual establishment records and reflect the number of establishments that exist in 
a county or industry at a point in time. Establishments can move in or out of a 
county or industry for a number of reasons--some reflecting economic events, others 
reflecting administrative changes. For example, economic change would come from a 
firm relocating into the county; administrative change would come from a company 
correcting its county designation. 

The over-the-year changes of employment and wages presented in this release have 
been adjusted to account for most of the administrative corrections made to the un-
derlying establishment reports. This is done by modifying the prior-year levels 
used to calculate the over-the-year changes. Percent changes are calculated using 
an adjusted version of the final 2009 quarterly data as the base data. The adjusted 
prior-year levels used to calculate the over-the-year percent change in employment 
and wages are not published. These adjusted prior-year levels do not match the un-
adjusted data maintained on the BLS Web site. Over-the-year change calculations 
based on data from the Web site, or from data published in prior BLS news releases, 
may differ substantially from the over-the-year changes presented in this news re-
lease. 

The adjusted data used to calculate the over-the-year change measures presented in 
this release account for most of the administrative changes--those occurring when 
employers update the industry, location, and ownership information of their estab-
lishments. The most common adjustments for administrative change are the result of 
updated information about the county location of individual establishments. In-
cluded in these adjustments are administrative changes involving the classification 
of establishments that were previously reported in the unknown or statewide county 
or unknown industry categories. Beginning with the first quarter of 2008, adjusted 
data account for administrative changes caused by multi-unit employers who start 
reporting for each individual establishment rather than as a single entity. 

The adjusted data used to calculate the over-the-year change measures presented in 
any County Employment and Wages news release are valid for comparisons between the 
starting and ending points (a 12-month period) used in that particular release. 
Comparisons may not be valid for any time period other than the one featured in a 
release even if the changes were calculated using adjusted data.
 
County definitions are assigned according to Federal Information Processing Stan-
dards Publications (FIPS PUBS) as issued by the National Institute of Standards and 
Technology, after approval by the Secretary of Commerce pursuant to Section 5131 of 
the Information Technology Management Reform Act of 1996 and the Computer Security 
Act of 1987, Public Law 104-106. Areas shown as counties include those designated 
as independent cities in some jurisdictions and, in Alaska, those designated as 
census areas where counties have not been created. County data also are presented 
for the New England states for comparative purposes even though townships are the 
more common designation used in New England (and New Jersey). The regions referred 
to in this release are defined as census regions.
