Quarterly Census of Employment and Wage (QCEW) - 2010-present

Employment data under the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program represent the number of covered workers who worked during, or received pay for, the pay period including the 12th of the month. Excluded are members of the armed forces, the self-employed, proprietors, domestic workers, unpaid family workers, and railroad workers covered by the railroad unemployment insurance system. Wages represent total compensation paid during the calendar quarter, regardless of when services were performed. Included in wages are pay for vacation and other paid leave, bonuses, stock options, tips, the cash value of meals and lodging, and in some States, contributions to deferred compensation plans (such as 401(k) plans). The QCEW program does provide partial information on agricultural industries and employees in private households. For more information please go to http://www.bls.gov/cew/cewover.htm  

* Data for the Charlotte-Concord-Gastonia, MSA only includes the NC data.

The QCEW program produces data on establishments, employment, and wages stratified by size of establishment for the first quarter of each year. The size class of each establishment is determined by the March employment level. For more information please go to http://www.bls.gov/cew/cewsize.htm

* It is important to note that each establishment of a multi-establishment firm is tabulated separately into the appropriate size category. The total employment level of the reporting multi-establishment company is not used in the size tabulation.
