Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages

Introducing the QCEW State and County Map Application

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has developed an interactive state and county map application available at http://beta.bls.gov/maps/cew/us. The application displays geographic economic data through maps, charts, and tables, allowing users to explore employment and wage data of private industry at the National, State, and county level. Throughout this application, URLs are specific to the data displayed, so links can be bookmarked, reused, and shared. The application includes maps, charts, tables, and a link to standard BLS data tables and graphs.

At the bottom of each table are download links. Each table can be downloaded as a CSV file for Microsoft Excel, a CSV data feed for use in "mash-ups", or as an XML file, preformatted for use as a web-based data source.
