Current Employment Statistics - CES (National)

Update to the 2022 North American Industry Classification System on February 3, 2023

With the release of January 2023 data on February 3, 2023, the Current Employment Statistics (CES) survey will revise the basis for industry classification from the 2017 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) to NAICS 2022. The conversion to NAICS 2022 will result in minor revisions reflecting content and coding changes within the mining and logging, manufacturing, wholesale trade, financial activities, and other services sectors, as well as major revisions reflecting content and coding changes in the retail trade and information sectors. Many industry titles and descriptions also will be updated to better reflect official NAICS titles. Approximately 10 percent of employment will be reclassified into different industries as a result of the revision. Details of updated titles and new, discontinued, and collapsed industries resulting from the NAICS 2022 update, as well as changes due to the annual benchmarking process, will be available on January 6, 2023.
