The Labor Market Information Division (LMID) of the EDD, in cooperation with the U.S. Bureau of Labor
Statistics, will be conducting a follow-up mailing of the November 2010 occupational and wage survey this month in
conjunction with the ongoing survey work to conclude the processing of the May 2010 Panel. The survey reference period
for this latest survey requires employers to report both full and part-time employees who worked during the pay period that included November 12th
The survey was designed to produce occupational estimates that are seasonally adjusted. Semi-annual panel collection and a faster processing schedule will provide LMI customers with timely data. Estimates from this survey panel
will be available in November 2011 for more than 827 occupations by geographic area and by industries in California. You can find the most current California OES
Employment and Wages on our Web site
by selecting Data Library
and then scrolling down
to Occupational Employment and Wages.
The initial mailing of the November 2010 survey, during the 2nd
week of November, was sent to more than 15,500 California employers.
As always, the success of the survey will be the result of timely and accurate reporting by employers. The survey provides valuable information to
employers, job seekers, the employment and training community, and economic developers. OES data are used to develop
occupational trends by industry, evaluate the presence of technology on occupations, and measure the changing employment composition of industries.
If you are one of the employers selected to participate, and you have questions, or need specific information about survey results, please call the OES toll
free line at 1-800-826-4896 or fax your request to 916-262-2950.
