The 2018 Census of Employment and Wages (CEW) dataset is complete and now available to purchase in easy to use Excel files. Because of the level of detail and historic data available, the CEW data is perfect for establishing trends and running statistical analyses. The CEW data is useful for completing trend analyses and deep dives into U.S. wage and salary information. Drilling down into specified sector data allows for users to explicitly define the industry they wish to analyze at a granular level.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics collects a quarterly count of employment and wages across the U.S. called the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW). It uses data that is reported by employers covering more than 95% of jobs across the country. Data is then made available at the county, state, and national levels.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) releases CEW data, however there are certain non-disclosures within their data. The data contains employment, wages, and establishments in a given sector and area (down to the county level) and contains this information at the 6-digit NAICS level. This allows for even greater detail in specific modeling scenarios. IMPLAN adds value by filling in these non-disclosures based on existing data to be able to provide a complete picture.
The CEW data is available for 2001 to current IMPLAN data year (2018). IMPLAN refreshes these every five years as part of the panel data process, which is currently underway. The CEW data are for counties and up (including Puerto Rico and its municipios). The CEW data contains a Read Me file with additional information.
