Current Employment Statistics (CES)

This is a monthly survey of business establishments. Approximately 900 Rhode Island businesses participate in the CES survey, providing the LMI Division with a monthly count of employees, hours worked, and wages paid. CES provides current estimates of non-farm establishment employment, as well as hours and earnings for production workers employed in the manufacturing sector. The employer responses are incorporated into statistical models developed by BLS, which generate employment estimates for the state’s major industries each month.
