We understand that confidentiality is important to you. That is why the law and our own security policies strictly protect the confidentiality of participants in our surveys. Additional information about how we protect your confidentiality is available on the Confidentiality Pledge and Laws page.

Thank You

Without the generous cooperation of the people who participate in our surveys-people like you-the Bureau of Labor Statistics could not fulfill its mission to provide vital information about our economy and society to so many different customers. Additional information about our mission is available on the About the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics page.
