State and Metro Area Employment, Hours, & Earnings

Press Release Schedule

The CES geographic data are available for all states and areas each month about 6 weeks after the survey reference week. For example, "preliminary" data for November 2014 and "final" data for October 2014 will be released in a comprehensive state press release on December 19, 2014. Many states will release their individual state and area data prior to the release dates below.

The annual release of new benchmark data is effective with the preliminary January estimates each year. These estimates are available in early March. New seasonally adjusted data for the preceding 5 years and factors to be applied to the current year's estimates are also released with the benchmark.

Below is the current press release schedule.
