A form of the BLS QCEW dataset that has been modified slightly by Emsi. Suppressions have been removed, public sector employment has been reorganized, and county and NAICS changes have been modified in past years for consistency. This dataset is designed to match QCEW in almost all cases, and should be used by clients who wish to match official sources.
Attempts to cover jobs which fall under an employer-employee relationship but are not covered by QCEW. The major types of employment covered in this set include military jobs, railroad jobs, many nonprofit and religious workers, certain salespersons, miscellaneous Federal Government and some other government workers.
Covers people who, when responding to Census surveys, consider self-employment to be a significant part of their income or time spent working. Most people normally considered “self-employed” would fall into this dataset.
Race vs Ethinicity
The race and Hispanic origin categories used by the Census Bureau are mandated by Office of Management and Budget Directive No. 15, which requires all federal record keeping and data presentation to use four race categories (White, Black, American Indian and Alaska Native, Asian and Pacific Islander) and two ethnicity categories (Hispanic, non-Hispanic). These classifications are not intended to be scientific in nature, but are designed to promote consistency in federal record keeping and data presentation.
