Series Changes as a Result of Annual Sample Review

All CES series are evaluated annually for sample size, coverage, and response rates. The following changes resulted from a re-evaluation of the sample and universe coverage for CES industries, which are based on North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) industries. Some small industries no longer have sufficient sample to be estimated and published separately and will be combined with other similar industries for estimation and publication purposes.

A list of currently published CES series is available at www.bls.gov/web/empsit/cesseriespub.htm.

Only directly estimated data types are noted in the following tables: employment of all employees (AE), AE average weekly hours (AE AWH), AE average hourly earnings (AE AHE), AE average weekly overtime hours (AE AWOH), employment of production and nonsupervisory employees (PE), PE average weekly hours (PE AWH), PE average hourly earnings (PE AHE), PE average weekly overtime hours (PE AWOH), and employment of women employees (WE). Directly estimated data types other than AE are collectively called non-AE data types.

Series with CES Industry Code or Title Changes

Some series will have new CES industry codes or titles as a result of the series changes (table 1). These CES industry code or title changes will be applied to all data types published for the designated series. Historical data for these series with new CES industry codes or CES industry titles are impacted as noted on the remainder of this page; historical data will be available under the new CES industry codes or CES industry titles.

Update to NAICS 2017

The CES program will update the national nonfarm payroll series to the 2017 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) from the NAICS 2012 basis with the February 2, 2018 Employment Situation release. This change is in accordance with the final decision from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on recommendations put forth by its Economic Classification Policy Committee (ECPC) in the Federal Register, Volume 81, Number 152. For more information on OMBís decision and directive on the NAICS 2017 update, see www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2015-08-04/pdf/2015-19022.pdf. For more information on NAICS 2012 and NAICS 2017 classifications, see www.census.gov/epcd/www/naics.html. For more information on other Federal Register notices involving NAICS, see www.census.gov/eos/www/naics/federal_register_notices/fedregister.html.

This conversion will result in minor revisions reflecting content and coding changes within the retail trade, information, financial activities, and professional and business services major industry sectors, as well as a number of consolidations within the durable goods manufacturing, retail trade, and information major industry sectors. Several industry titles and descriptions will also be updated. Approximately 4 percent of CES employment will be reclassified into different industries as a result of the revision.

Some of the changes associated with the NAICS 2017 update will impact levels of detail not published by CES; therefore, only cases where CES industries will be impacted are discussed in detail here. Only the following directly estimated data types are noted in the following tables: employment of all employees (AE), AE average weekly hours (AE AWH), AE average hourly earnings (AE AHE), employment of production and nonsupervisory employees (PE), PE average weekly hours (PE AWH), PE average hourly earnings (PE AHE), and employment of women employees (WE). Directly estimated data types other than AE are collectively called non-AE data types.

For instances where reconstructions are necessary, ratios of employment moving from old CES industries based on NAICS 2012 to new CES industries based on NAICS 2017 were calculated for March 2017 and will be applied to historical CES data. These ratios were calculated by assigning both a NAICS 2012-based CES industry and a NAICS 2017-based CES industry to individual report-level data from the longitudinal database (LDB) from the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) which is used as the CES sample frame. The March 2017 LDB employment was summed by old CES industry based on NAICS 2012 and by new CES industry based on NAICS 2017. Forward ratios were created by dividing the amount of each old NAICS 2012-based CES industry moving to a new NAICS 2017-based CES industry by its total for the old CES industry (see table 8 for AE ratios and table 13 for non-AE ratios). Reverse ratios were created by dividing the amount of each old NAICS 2012-based CES industry moving to a new NAICS 2017-based CES industry by its total for the new CES industry (see table 9 for AE reverse ratios and table 14 for non-AE reverse ratios). For more information about previous CES NAICS conversions and how CES industry codes relate to NAICS codes, see www.bls.gov/ces/cesnaics.htm.

AE series are published at a more detailed level than non-AE series. Forward ratios will be held constant and applied to each monthly CES employment estimate for the entire history of the series, usually back to 1990, to determine the amount of employment moving from a NAICS 2012 CES industry to a NAICS 2017 CES industry. Average weekly hours and average hourly earnings will be recalculated by applying forward ratios to the amount of old total hours and old total payroll to move the correct amount of hours or earnings into the new CES industry. Total hours and total earnings will then be averaged using the new employment levels. More information about the calculation of CES estimates for employment, hours, and earnings estimates are available in the CES Technical Notes under Estimation Methods.

The conversion from NAICS 2012 to NAICS 2017 can affect CES industry codes in several ways. Some CES series will be converted as a whole from their NAICS 2012 industry code to their new NAICS 2017 industry code. Some CES series will be combined with other series because their underlying NAICS codes are being combined. Other CES series will be split into more detailed CES series because their NAICS codes will be changed to accommodate new distinct industries. Finally, some CES series will no longer be published at the same level of detail under NAICS 2017. Examples of each of these changes are outlined below.

AE Series Changes Due to NAICS 2017 Update:

Non-AE Series Changes Due to NAICS 2017 Update:

AE Series Changes Due to NAICS 2017 Update

Some AE series will be partially or completely combined with other series. For example, in table 5 the CES industry department stores, except discount (42-452111) will be combined with a portion of discount department stores (42-452112) to create the new CES industry department stores (42-452200). This is because the associated NAICS 2012 industry code 452111 is becoming NAICS 2017 industry code 452210, and part of NAICS 2012 industry code 452112 is becoming NAICS 2017 industry code 452210. The remainder of NAICS 2012 industry code 452112 is becoming NAICS 2017 industry code 452311, along with all of NAICS 2012 industry code 452910.

Table 8 shows the proportion of AE employment that will be moved from an old CES industry code based on NAICS 2012 to a new CES industry code based on NAICS 2017. Industries that move directly and completely from a NAICS 2012 CES industry to a NAICS 2017 CES industry have a ratio of 100. NAICS 2012 CES industries that move only a portion of their employment from the old NAICS 2012 CES industry to a new NAICS 2017 CES industry have ratios of less than 100. Old NAICS 2012 CES industry codes with ratios of less than 100 are listed multiple times to account for the movement of all of their employment. For example, 98.3 percent of discount department stores (42-452112) will be moved into the new NAICS 2017 CES industry department stores (42-452200). The remaining 1.7 percent will be moved into the new CES industry warehouse clubs and supercenters (42-452311).

Non-AE Series Changes Due to NAICS 2017 Update

Some non-AE series will be partially or completely combined with other series, just like their AE counterparts, while other series affected for AE will not be affected for non-AE. For instance, in table 10 the old NAICS 2012 CES industries department stores, except discount (42-452111) and discount department stores (42-452112) do not appear because non-AE data types are not published at the same level. Instead, non-AE data types are published for general merchandise stores (42-452000) which is not affected by NAICS 2017 changes.

Table 11 shows non-AE series that will have changes in scope due to the conversion from NAICS 2012 to NAICS 2017. Again, these series reflect the same changes as their AE counterparts, but at less detailed levels, and some series affected for AE are not affected for non-AE. For example, in table 11 the old NAICS 2012 CES industry video tape and disc rental (55-532230) does not appear because non-AE data types are not published at the same level. Instead, non-AE data types are published for consumer goods rental (55-532200) which is not affected by NAICS 2017 changes.

Table 12 shows non-AE series that will no longer be published under NAICS 2017. Some AE series that will be deleted were already not published for non-AE series, and therefore, are unaffected by NAICS 2017 deletions for non-AE. For example, the old NAICS 2012 CES industry warehouse clubs and supercenters (42-452910) is being deleted for AE and its employment is being moved into a new NAICS 2017 CES industry. It is already not published for non-AE series, and, therefore, does not appear in table 12.

Table 13 shows the proportion of non-AE employment that will move from an old CES industry code based on NAICS 2012 to a new CES industry code based on NAICS 2017. Industries that move directly and completely from an old NAICS 2012 CES industry to a new NAICS 2017 CES industry have a ratio of 100. Old NAICS 2012 CES industries that move only a portion of their employment from the old NAICS 2012 CES industry to a new NAICS 2017 CES industry will have ratios of less than 100. Old NAICS 2012 CES industry codes with ratios of less than 100 will be listed multiple times to account for the movement of all of their employment. For instance, 4.9 percent of biotechnology research (60-541711) will be moved into the new NAICS 2017 CES industry research and development in nanotechnology (60-541713). The remaining 95.1 percent will be moved into the new NAICS 2017 CES industry research and development in biotechnology, except nanobiotechnology (60-541714).

Table 14 shows the proportion of non-AE employment moving to a new CES industry based on NAICS 2017 that came from an old CES industry based on NAICS 2012. For example, 66.8 percent of the new NAICS 2017 CES industry electronic shopping and mail-order houses (42-454100) comes from the old NAICS 2012 CES industry electronic shopping and electronic auctions (42-454112). The remaining 33.2 percent of the new NAICS 2017 CES industry electronic shopping and mail-order houses (42-454100) comes from the old NAICS 2012 CES industry mail-order houses (42-454113).
