Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics

Notice about wage data for postal service workers

BLS removed May 2008 wage data for three U.S. Postal Service specific occupations — (1) postal service clerks; (2) postal service mail carriers; and (3) postal service mail sorters, processors, and processing machine operators — after determining that our standard methodology for estimating wages did not work well for these unique occupations. Revised May 2008 wage estimates for these occupations were posted on May 29, 2009. The Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) database and the most recent OES news release were also updated on that day with the revised estimates.
