Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages

QCEW Data Files


The Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program provides several different types of data files. These files are available for download. Data classified using the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) are available from 1990 forward, and on a more limited basis from 1975 to 1989. NAICS-based data files from 1990 to 2000 were re-constructed from data classified under the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system. NAICS-based data files from 1975 to 1989 contain only totals by-ownership. NAICS data can be downloaded from the NAICS-Based Data Files table below.
