Work Stoppages: The Work Stoppage database provides summary statistics on work stoppages affecting 1,000 or more workers. Published annually, the monthly data reflect the number of workers involved, percent of work time lost, and days idle.
This tool lets users query the BLS databases for specific data series. For each survey and program, make a selection for each characteristic in the order listed. As you make your selection, the remaining characteristics will filter to show only choices where data are available. After choosing the series, click on “Add to selection.” If you need more data series, repeat the steps of choosing the data series you need. After you've finished finding the data series you need, click on the “Get Data” button to retrieve the data, and an HTML table with data for the most recent 10 years will display. If you desire a different time period or format, you may modify the options on the data display page, or click on the “More Formatting Options” button for additional options on refining the data retrieval results. Note: Users may not retrieve more than 200 data series in one query.
To select multiple options, hold the Ctrl/Command button, and click the desired options.
