Labor Market Information - Connecticut Current Employment Statistics (CES)
  Current Employment Statistics (CES) - State of Connecticut Last Updated: October 20, 2014
The Current Employment Statistics (CES)  more information program provides the most current estimates of nonfarm employment, hours, and earnings data by industry (place of work) for the nation as a whole, all states, and most major metropolitan areas. The CES survey is a federal-state cooperative endeavor in which states develop state and sub-state data using concepts, definitions, and technical procedures prescribed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Estimates produced by the CES program include both full- and part-time jobs. Excluded are self-employment, as well as agricultural and domestic positions. In Connecticut, more than 4,000 employers are surveyed each month to determine the number of the jobs in the State.

    The private sector workweek, not seasonally adjusted, averaged 33.9 hours in September 2014, lower by two-tenths of an hour from the year-ago estimate of 34.1 hours. Average hourly earnings at $28.26, not seasonally adjusted, were up 33 cents, or 1.2%, from the September 2013 hourly private sector pay figure of $27.93. The resultant average private sector weekly pay was tallied at $958.01, up $5.60, or 0.6% over the year. Current all-employee private sector wage estimates have turned positive over the year recently in a low inflationary environment. The year-to-year change in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U, U.S. City Average, not seasonally adjusted) in September 2014 was not available (release date Oct. 22nd.).
