Average Hourly and Weekly Earnings
Hours and earnings estimates from April 2011-December 2012 from the monthly Current Employment Statistics (CES) survey were revised as part of the annual benchmarking process, and will be released on the New York State Department of Labor web site on March 7, 2013. Questions regarding the revised hours and earnings estimates should be directed to your local labor market analyst.
Hours and earnings estimates--by place of work--provide the most up-to-date hours worked and hourly & weekly wage estimates available by industry. Estimates are based on the monthly Current Employment Statistics (CES) survey of over 18,000 businesses, which uses probability sampling methodology and is based on the new NAICS classification system. Hours and earnings figures are available for New York State selected industries only. Current estimates are developed and distributed monthly.
The entire set of currently available historical NAICS-based jobs data for New York State, metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs), and minor counties (outside of MSAs) is available by downloading the file, ces.zip. This compressed archive consists of a layout file (readme.txt) and the following comma-separated-value (CSV) data files:
