About this Blog

Welcome to Commissioner’s Corner. The Bureau of Labor Statistics is the principal federal agency responsible for measuring labor market activity, working conditions, and price changes in the economy. The Bureau operates surveys and programs that measure employment and unemployment, compensation, worker safety, productivity, price trends, consumer spending patterns, and Americans’ use of time.

The BLS website provides a wealth of information on these surveys and programs; you should visit it often to keep informed about new BLS data and products. Commissioner’s Corner provides information on the many other areas in which BLS is involved and highlights our testimony before Congressional committees, public speeches by BLS leadership, awards and recognition, and outstanding new products on the BLS website.
