New Features on BLS Website, October 2005

On October 19, 2005, the Bureau of Labor Statistics launched several new features on its website.

  • Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) Tool—you can readily retrieve wage and employment statistics by occupation and area using this new tool.  For example, you can find out how much registered nurses are paid in different States and different metropolitan areas.

  • Occupational Injuries and Illnesses Profiles—this new online tool allows you to easily generate tables of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses data by industry, by the demographic characteristics of the worker, and by the characteristics surrounding the incident. These tables can be generated in either HTML or Excel format.  This is an online version of the Profiles system that had previously been available only on CD-ROM.

  • Injury and Illness Incidence Rate Calculator and Comparison Tool—this calculator allows you to compute injury and illness incidence rates for your establishment and to compare your rates with your industry's averages.

  • Changes to Business Employment Dynamics tools—in preparation for the upcoming release of new firm size class data, these data extraction tools for the Business Employment Dynamics database have been modified: Create Customized Tables (one screen) and Create Customized Tables (multiple screens).
