About the Quarterly Census of Employment & Wages

Data Source

Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages summarizes employment, wage and contributions data submitted to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services by employers subject to the Ohio Unemployment Compensation Law, as well as those covered under Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees.

Level of Detail

North American Industry Classification System (NAICS)
  • Trend tables begin with the year 1990; annual data with the year 2000; quarterly data with the year 2001; and size-of-firm data with the year 2004.
  • OhioLMI's Data Search Tool contains information on the number of establishments, number of employees, total wages, and average wage for privately owned businesses, beginning in 2000.

Geographic Areas

Quarterly Census of Employment & Wages data are published for the State of Ohio and its counties, selected metropolitan areas, and Workforce Development Areas.

Uses

Publications are primarily used by research organizations, large employers, trade associations and economic, education and training planners. Data may be used:

  • To identify growth industries and plan needed training programs;
  • For business planning decisions: marketing, location and expansion;
  • To analyze factors contributing to specific industry growth and decline;
  • To analyze long-term industry and economic trends; and
  • To estimate income levels.

Limitations

Beginning 2000, Quarterly Census of Employment & Wages publications began being published based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). 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.
