Are estimates available by occupation?

Are estimates available by establishment size?
JOLTS staff are conducting research on the development of data by size class, and have
produced a research series of size class estimates stretching back to December of 2000,
when the JOLTS series began. These experimental size class estimates are now available
upon request. These data are based on size of establishment and cover only the total private
sector. This experimental series will be updated periodically, as resources permit. To obtain
these data, please contact us by e-mail or (202) 691-5870.
For information regarding the methodology used to develop the size class data please view our size class methodology.
Can I get a list of companies in the sample?
