The California Regional Economies Employment (CREE) Series
was recently updated to include calendar year 2008 data. The CREE is one component of the California Regional Economies Project, sponsored by the California Workforce Investment Board in cooperation with the California Economic Strategy Panel. It provides non-confidential annual average employment data from 1990-2008 for the State, each county in the State, and the United States (defined as the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands).
The CREE private industry data come from the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages program and include more than 2,100 rows of industry figures, based on industry definitions from the North American Industry Classification System.
The five data items provided for each industry are:
- Number of Establishments
- Average Employment
- Total Wages
- Average Weekly Wage
- Average Annual Wage
The CREE government data come from the Current Employment Statistics program and provide Average Annual Employment figures for federal, state, and local government, including separate breakouts, when available, for Department of Defense, State Education, and Local Education. The 2008 government data are all preliminary and will be finalized later this year. The 2008 private sector data are all final.
