    Washington Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates -i

    Introduction

    The Labor Market and Economic Analysis branch of the Employment Security Departmentpresents the Washington state occupational employment and wage estimates for March 2009.

    The data are presented by area for Statewide, Metropolitan Statistical Areas, and four Balance of

    State areas. All data in this publication are at the cross-industry level.

    These estimates are produced by the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) Survey, a semi-

    annual federal-state cooperative program between state employment departments and the Bureau

    of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor. National estimates and information about the

    survey are available online at http://www.bls.gov/oes.

    Notes on Estimates

    The occupational employment and wage estimates presented here are based on the spring 2008

    Occupational Employment Statistics survey of over 4,000 employers. Data from the current

    survey were combined with the fall 2005, spring 2006, fall 2006, spring 2007, and fall 2007surveys to increase the sample size to about 24,000 employers. Wage estimates were updated to

    a March 2009 level using Employment Cost Index (ECI) factors. Employment estimates are

    benchmarked to an average of November 2007 and May 2008 employment.

    All occupations collected in the survey were classified into one of about 800 categories using the

    Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) coding system. For job definitions and otherinformation about the SOC coding system, go online to www.bls.gov/soc.

    The survey covers non-farming establishments. Self-employed persons are not included. Some

    occupations or wage levels will not appear due to inadequate sample size. Occupations with anestimated employment of less than 25 were not included in this publication. To determine the

    outlook of various occupations, see Employment Projections at www.workforceexplorer.com;select Data Analysts under Quick Links.

    Note regarding this publication: The Washington State Employment Security Department has provided

    several extensions to the official OES data series (which have been developed in cooperation with the

    Bureau of Labor Statistics). These additional products have not been validated by BLS and are not,

    therefore, official BLS data series. The Employment Security Department feels, however, that they

    provide additional information that is useful to the users of these data.

    Washington State labor market information is available on

    the Labor Market and Economic Analysis website at:
