Discontinued CES data on SIC through April 2003 only

With the release of May 2003 data on June 6, 2003, the CES National Nonfarm Payroll series underwent a complete industry reclassification, changing from the 1987 Standard Industrial Classification System (SIC) to the 2002 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). SIC-based data is no longer produced or published, and is available through April 2003 only.
