The Current Employment Statistics (CES) survey is a nationwide monthly payroll survey of close to 400,000 business establishments. It provides current estimates of employment, hours, and earnings in industry and area detail for the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is currently redesigning the CES survey. The research presented here is one component of the redesign.
