An Examination of All‐Employee Payroll and Hours Reports in CES

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.
