NOTE: Production of State estimates transitioned from State Agencies to BLS

The responsibility for the estimation of State and metropolitan statistical area data for the Total Nonagricultural Wage and Salary Employment series transitioned from the Kansas Department of Labor; Labor Market Information Services Division to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) effective with the production of the March 2011 preliminary estimates.

With this transition, the BLS has implemented several methodological changes to standardize the estimation approach across states. While these changes will reduce the potential for statistical bias in state and metropolitan area estimates, they may increase the month-to-month variability of the estimates.

More detailed information on the changes to procedures for producing CES estimates is available on the BLS Web site.
