Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages

Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) is a federal/state cooperative program that measures employment and wages in industries covered by unemployment insurance. Data are available by industry and county and used to evaluate labor trends, monitor major industry developments and develop training programs. We collect information about monthly employment, total wages and taxable wages from quarterly unemployment tax forms filed by employers. Data are released four times a year, about seven months after the end of each quarter.
