Harley Frazis

Abstract

This report examines response rates, internal consistency, and data quality of payroll and hours data collected for all employees and production/nonsupervisory workers. We use CES data covering the period from January 2006 through December 2008 and also compared CES tabulations to QCEW tabulations of average weekly earnings.
