Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics

Occupational Employment and wage Statistics (OEwS)

The Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics (OEWS) is a federal Bureau of Labor Statistics program that provides employment and wage estimates by occupation. OEWS is a nation-wide program which contacts 400,000 establishments annually (approximately 7,000 establishments are contacted annually in Iowa). The data is comparable across states and the nation.

Data is available for the State of Iowa, four Balance of the State (BOS) areas and by Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA) across the State. The OEWS is not time series data and is not comparable year to year.
