Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics (OEWS) Report — Information for Respondents
For Your Information
Welcome to the Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics (OEWS) respondent website. Without the generous cooperation of the people who participate in our surveys, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) could not fulfill its mission to provide vital information about our economy. The OEWS Survey is a cooperative effort between the U.S. Department of Labor and your State Department of Labor Workforce Agency.
BLS Confidentiality Pledge
Protecting confidentiality is central to accomplishing the BLS mission. The BLS, its employees, agents, and partner statistical agencies, will use the information you provide for statistical purposes only and will hold the information in confidence to the full extent permitted by law. In accordance with the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act (44 USC Section 3572) and other applicable Federal laws, your responses will not be disclosed in identifiable form without your informed consent. Per the Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015, Federal information systems are protected from malicious activities through cybersecurity screening of transmitted data. More information…
