The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is implementing a substantial change to the format of our news releases over the next few years. Our objective is to improve readability, accessibility, and consistency while maintaining our high standard of accuracy. Changes include easy-to-read bullets and interactive charts. News release tables will be published with the release in XLSX format.
Since news releases are the principal means through which BLS data are disseminated to the public, we greatly value your feedback. News release prototypes will be posted on this page for feedback over the next few years.
Data displayed in these releases may not be current; recent data are available in our searchable databases.
