Current Employment Statistics (CES)

Enter Title

The CES program provides monthly estimates of all nonagricultural employees, hourly earnings, average weekly earnings, and average weekly hours for production workers and select service producing, non-supervisory employees for the State, Las Vegas-Paradise MSA, Reno-Sparks MSA, and Carson City MSA.

The CES survey of payroll records covers over 300,000 business, nationally. The program is a federal/state partnership. After verifying and computing current monthly employment, hours, and earning estimates by industry, the Research and Analysis Bureau transmits the data to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, where it is combined with data from other states to determine national economic trends.
