Limitations

Beginning 2000, Quarterly Census of Employment & Wages publications began being published based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). Publications based on the former Standard Industry Classification (SIC) system are available for 2001 and before.

Due to statutory changes, the type guidelines for establishments that report employment and wages and are included in the reports have changed periodically. Historical data are therefore not always comparable to current data.

Because of confidentiality requirements, data are not disclosed for any industry level within an ownership class consisting of fewer than three reporting units or where any one employer has 80% or more of the industry's total employment.

Because of industry code changes between years, there may be substantial employment and wage shifts among industries. Preliminary data are not available until seven months after the end of the reference quarter. Annual data are not available until the winter of the following year.
