  • BLS data for over 100 industries, available in Alphabetical order by industry or NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) number order.
  • Data are available for North American Industry Classification System supersectors, sectors, and industries.
  • Pages for each industry display a current "snapshot" of national data obtained from different BLS surveys and programs. Some programs also produce additional data, for states, metropolitan areas, and counties.
  • Links to industry supersectors are shown on the left side of this screen. These links are available from every page.

About the data

  • The most current information is always displayed. Industry at a Glance (IAG) tables are refreshed every time a source program releases new data.
  • IAG pages may contain different tables or levels of data because BLS programs produce differing levels of industry detail.
  • Because the data come from different surveys and programs, they may not always be directly comparable.
  • Because of differences in survey methods, some data may cover all workers or establishments, while other data may only be for private industry.
  • NAICS is revised every 5 years; the NAICS implementation schedule shows planned conversion dates for each BLS program for the most recent NAICS revision.
