Subscribe to iCal Calendar

iCal can be used for sharing information between calendar applications, for example, Outlook 2007. This allows you to easily link dates from one calendar application to another. The BLS website features two types of calendar views - month and list - displaying information regarding a variety of BLS news releases.

NOTE: The tentative schedule to update the calendar is every Friday at approximately 3:30PM Eastern Time.
