Occupational Employment Statistics

Notice about wage data for flight attendants and airline pilots, copilots, and flight engineers

Wage data for two occupations, (1) flight attendants and (2) airline pilots, copilots, and flight engineers, were removed from tables on the BLS website in September 2008 because the annual wage figures were found to have been overestimated. Revised May 2007 wage estimates for these occupations were posted on February 12, 2009. The Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) database and the most recent OES news release were also updated on that day with the revised estimates. Unfortunately, BLS is not able to publish corrected estimates for data prior to May 2007. We regret any inconvenience that this causes users.
