or ES790), a federal-state program that gathers data on employment and earnings
in goods-producing and service-producing industries in Ohio and selected metropolitan

or ES-202), a federal- state program that summarizes employment, wage and
contribution data from employers subject to state unemployment laws, as well
as workers covered by unemployment compensation for federal employees.
- The Occupational Employment Statistics (OES),
a federal-state program that provides occupational employment and wage data
for wage and salary workers in nonfarm establishments. All industries are
surveyed except private households, agricultural production, forestry, fishing,
the military, self-employed and unpaid family workers.

of Labor Statistics.

- Industry projections use the North American Industry Classification System
- Occupational projections use categories defined in the Occupational Employment
Statistics (OES) survey and use Standard Occupational
Classification (SOC) codes.
Labor Market Projections are used primarily for planning education & training
programs and for career counseling.
As with all forecasts and projections, Labor Market Projections are subject
to error, especially if events negate underlying assumptions. Generally, relative
error increases with smaller industries, occupations and areas.
