For Your Information

  • In the spring of 2021, the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) program will begin using the name Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics (OEWS) to better reflect the range of data available from the program. Data released on or after March 31, 2021 will reflect the new program name. Data collection materials, including forms, emails, and letters, will be updated for employers in the May 2021 survey panel. Webpages, publications, and other materials associated with previous data releases will retain the Occupational Employment Statistics name.

Thank You

Welcome to the Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics (OEWS) respondent website. Without the generous cooperation of the people who participate in our surveys, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) could not fulfill its mission to provide vital information about our economy. The OEWS Survey is a cooperative effort between the U.S. Department of Labor and your State Department of Labor Workforce Agency.

The BLS, its employees, agents, and partner statistical agencies, will use the information you provide for statistical purposes only and will hold the information in confidence to the full extent permitted by law. In accordance with the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act (44 USC Section 3572) and other applicable Federal laws, your responses will not be disclosed in identifiable form without your informed consent. Per the Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015, Federal information systems are protected from malicious activities through cybersecurity screening of transmitted data. More information…
