Employment, Hours, and Earnings in States and Areas of the United States, 1940-1991 (ICPSR 9928)
These data were generated from the Current Employment Statistics Survey, a joint federal-state undertaking that produces state, regional, and national statistics on employment, hours, and earnings in the United States. State agencies collect data each month from a sample of establishments involved in all nonagricultural activities, including government. Those industries that reflect significant economic activity in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands are selected for publication. All employment, hours, and earnings series are classified according to the 1987 Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes.

Scope of Study
This dataset has two levels. Level 1, the state level, is the series title record that contains seven variables and one record per case for each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Level 2, the establishment level, is the series data record that contains 43 variables and one record per case for each nonagricultural establishment in those states. In this hierarchical dataset, employment is measured in thousands of workers and is stored with one decimal place. Earnings are measured in dollars and are stored with two decimal places.
