About May 2011 National Industry-Specific Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates

The May 2011 OES National Industry-Specific Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates are calculated from data collected in a national survey of employers. Data on occupational employment and wages are collected from employers of every size, in every State, in metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas, in all industry sectors. These data are used to calculate industry-specific occupational employment and wage estimates for most sector, 3, 4, and 5-digit North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) industry groups. In 2008, the OES survey switched to the 2007 NAICS classification system from the 2002 NAICS. The most significant revisions were in the Information Sector, particularly within the Telecommunications area. For more information about NAICS, see the NAICS Structure. The industry-specific occupational employment and wage estimates for a particular industry are calculated with data collected from establishments in that industry. Self-employed persons are not included in the survey or estimates. Since 1999, the OES program has used the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system.

The National Industry-Specific Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates consist of the following:
