Employment Cost Trends

Potential Effects of the Events of September 11, 2001 on the Employment Cost Index

  • The events of September 11 occurred during the September reference period for the Employment Cost Index (ECI). The attacks resulted in a tragic loss of lives and significant disruptions in the New York and Washington area economies, as well as disruptions to other businesses outside these directly impacted areas. A review of the September survey responses to evaluate the impact of the situation on the ECI survey cooperation rates by industry and any impact of nonresponse on survey estimates found no unusual effects.
