Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics

The May 2021 estimates

The May 2021 estimates were the first OEWS estimates based solely on survey data collected using the 2018 SOC. With the May 2021 estimates release, OEWS now publishes data for most 2018 SOC detailed occupations. To improve data quality, OEWS will continue to aggregate some occupations to the 2018 SOC broad occupation level or as OEWS-specific combinations of detailed occupations. May 2021 OEWS occupations with definitions [XLSX] are now available.
