Current employment statistics
Current Employment Statistics (CES) is a federal/state cooperative program that produces monthly estimates of nonfarm employment, hours worked and earnings at the state and local levels. CES is also known as the payroll or establishment survey. The survey sample includes about 7,000 businesses and government agencies, which cover around 20,000 individual worksites. CES estimates are among the earliest economic information available to analyze current economic conditions.
