Benchmark-related Release Dates

In accordance with usual practice, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) will publish the preliminary estimate of the upcoming annual benchmark revision to the establishment survey employment series concurrent with publication of first quarter 2016 data from the BLS Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) on September 7, 2016.

The final 2016 benchmark will be released with the February 2017 release of the January 2017 Employment Situation. The precise date of that release will be set by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in Fall 2016.
