Series Changes as a Result of Annual Sample Review

All CES series are evaluated annually for sample size, coverage, and response rates. The following changes resulted from a re-evaluation of the sample and universe coverage for CES industries, which are based on North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) industries. Some small industries no longer have sufficient sample to be estimated and published separately and were combined with other similar industries for estimation and publication purposes.

A list of currently published CES series is available at www.bls.gov/web/empsit/cesseriespub.htm.

Only directly estimated data types are noted in the following tables: all employees (AE), AE average weekly hours (AE AWH), AE average hourly earnings (AE AHE), AE average weekly overtime hours (AE AWOH), production and nonsupervisory employees (PE), PE average weekly hours (PE AWH), PE average hourly earnings (PE AHE), PE average weekly overtime hours (PE AWOH), and women employees (WE). Directly estimated data types other than AE are collectively called non-AE data types.

Series with CES Industry Code or Title Changes

Some series have new CES industry codes or titles as a result of the series changes (table 1). These CES industry code or title changes were applied to all data types published for the designated series. Historical data for these series with new CES industry codes or CES industry titles were impacted as noted on the remainder of this page; historical data is available under the new CES industry codes or CES industry titles.

Update to NAICS 2017

The CES program updated the national nonfarm payroll series to the 2017 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) from the NAICS 2012 basis with the February 2, 2018 Employment Situation release. This change is in accordance with the final decision from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on recommendations put forth by its Economic Classification Policy Committee (ECPC) in the Federal Register, Volume 81, Number 152. For more information on OMBís decision and directive on the NAICS 2017 update, see www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2015-08-04/pdf/2015-19022.pdf. For more information on NAICS 2012 and NAICS 2017 classifications, see www.census.gov/epcd/www/naics.html. For more information on other Federal Register notices involving NAICS, see www.census.gov/eos/www/naics/federal_register_notices/fedregister.html.

This conversion resulted in minor revisions reflecting content and coding changes within the retail trade, information, financial activities, and professional and business services major industry sectors, as well as a number of consolidations within the durable goods manufacturing, retail trade, and information major industry sectors. Several industry titles and descriptions were updated. Approximately 4 percent of CES employment was reclassified into different industries as a result of the revision. For more information about NAICS codes and CES industry codes, as well as previous NAICS conversions, see www.bls.gov/ces/cesnaics.htm.

Some of the changes associated with the NAICS 2017 update impacted levels of detail not published by CES; therefore, only cases where CES industries were impacted are discussed in detail here.

Only the following directly estimated data types are noted in the following tables: all employees (AE), AE average weekly hours (AE AWH), AE average hourly earnings (AE AHE), production and nonsupervisory employees (PE), PE average weekly hours (PE AWH), PE average hourly earnings (PE AHE), and women employees (WE). Directly estimated data types other than AE are collectively called non-AE data types.

The conversion from NAICS 2012 to NAICS 2017 can affect CES industry codes in several ways. Some CES series were converted as a whole from their NAICS 2012 industry code to their new NAICS 2017 industry code. Some CES series were combined with other series because their underlying NAICS codes were combined. Other CES series were split into more detailed CES series because their NAICS codes were changed to accommodate new distinct industries. Finally, some CES series are no longer published at the same level of detail under NAICS 2017.

Where reconstructions were necessary, ratios of employment moving from old CES industries based on NAICS 2012 to new CES industries based on NAICS 2017 were calculated for March 2017 and were applied to historical CES data. These ratios were calculated by assigning both a NAICS 2012-based CES industry and a NAICS 2017-based CES industry to individual report-level data from the longitudinal database (LDB) from the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) which is used as the CES sample frame. The March 2017 LDB employment was summed by old CES industry based on NAICS 2012 and by new CES industry based on NAICS 2017. Forward ratios were created by dividing the amount of each old NAICS 2012-based CES industry moving to a new NAICS 2017-based CES industry by its total for the old CES industry (see table 8 for AE ratios and table 13 for non-AE ratios). Reverse ratios were created by dividing the amount of each old NAICS 2012-based CES industry moving to a new NAICS 2017-based CES industry by its total for the new CES industry (see table 9 for AE reverse ratios and table 14 for non-AE reverse ratios).

Forward ratios were held constant and applied to each monthly CES employment estimate for the entire history of the series, usually back to 1990, to determine the amount of employment moving from a NAICS 2012 CES industry to a NAICS 2017 CES industry. Average weekly hours and average hourly earnings were recalculated by applying forward ratios to the amount of old total hours and old total payroll to move the correct amount of hours or earnings into the new CES industry. Total hours and total earnings were then averaged using the new employment levels. More information about the calculation of CES estimates for employment, hours, and earnings estimates is available in the CES Technical Notes under Estimation Methods.

AE Series Changes Due to NAICS 2017 Update

Table 5 shows AE series that were partially or completely combined with other series.

For example, the CES industry department stores, except discount (42-452111) was combined with a portion of discount department stores (42-452112) to create the new CES industry department stores (42-452200). This is because the associated NAICS 2012 industry code 452111 became NAICS 2017 industry code 452210, and part of NAICS 2012 industry code 452112 became NAICS 2017 industry code 452210. The remainder of NAICS 2012 industry code 452112 became NAICS 2017 industry code 452311, along with all of NAICS 2012 industry code 452910.

Table 7 shows AE series that are no longer published under NAICS 2017.

For example, NAICS 2017 combined electronic shopping and electronic auctions (NAICS 454112) and mail-order houses (NAICS 454113) into electronic shopping and mail-order houses (NAICS 454110). The two CES industries associated with the NAICS 2012 industries are 42-454112 and 42-454113. These were discontinued and the higher level CES series electronic shopping and mail-order houses (42-454100) is the next highest published level.

Table 8 shows the proportion of AE employment that moved from an old NAICS 2012-based CES industry code to a new NAICS 2017-based CES industry code.

Industries that moved completely from a NAICS 2012-based CES industry to a NAICS 2017-based CES industry have a ratio of 100. NAICS 2012-based CES industries that moved only a portion of their employment from the old NAICS 2012-based CES industry to a new NAICS 2017-based CES industry have ratios of less than 100. Old NAICS 2012-based CES industry codes with ratios of less than 100 are listed multiple times to account for the movement of all of their employment.

For example, 98.3 percent of discount department stores (42-452112) was moved into the new NAICS 2017-based CES industry department stores (42-452200). The remaining 1.7 percent was moved into the new CES industry warehouse clubs and supercenters (42-452311).

Non-AE Series Changes Due to NAICS 2017 Update

Table 10 shows non-AE series that were partially or completely combined with other series, just like their AE counterparts. Some series affected for AE were not affected for non-AE because non-AE data types are not published at the same level.

Table 11 shows non-AE series that had changes in scope due to the conversion from NAICS 2012 to NAICS 2017. These series reflect the same changes as their AE counterparts, but at less detailed levels, and some series affected for AE are not affected for non-AE.

Table 12 shows non-AE series that are no longer published under NAICS 2017. Some AE series that were discontinued were already not published for non-AE series, and therefore, are unaffected by NAICS 2017 discontinuations for non-AE.

Table 13 shows the proportion of non-AE employment that was moved from an old CES industry code based on NAICS 2012 to a new CES industry code based on NAICS 2017.

Industries that moved directly and completely from an old NAICS 2012-based CES industry to a new NAICS 2017-based CES industry have a ratio of 100. Old NAICS 2012-based CES industries that moved only a portion of their employment from the old NAICS 2012-based CES industry to a new NAICS 2017-based CES industry have ratios of less than 100. Old NAICS 2012-based CES industry codes with ratios of less than 100 are listed multiple times to account for the movement of all of their employment.

For example, 4.9 percent of biotechnology research (60-541711) moved into the new NAICS 2017-based CES industry research and development in nanotechnology (60-541713). The remaining 95.1 percent moved into the new NAICS 2017-based CES industry research and development in biotechnology, except nanobiotechnology (60-541714).

Table 14 shows the proportion of non-AE employment that moved to a new NAICS 2017-based CES industry that came from an old NAICS 2012-based CES industry.

For example, 66.8 percent of the new NAICS 2017-based CES industry electronic shopping and mail-order houses (42-454100) came from the old NAICS 2012-based CES industry electronic shopping and electronic auctions (42-454112). The remaining 33.2 percent of the new NAICS 2017-based CES industry electronic shopping and mail-order houses (42-454100) came from the old NAICS 2012-based CES industry mail-order houses (42-454113).
