Labor Market Information - Connecticut Current Employment Statistics (CES)
  Current Employment Statistics (CES) - State of Connecticut Last Updated: December 17, 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.

  • Average Hourly / Weekly Earnings / Weekly Hours (Excel only) The private sector workweek, not seasonally adjusted, averaged 34.2 hours in November 2014, and is higher by six-tenths of an hour (1.8%) from the year-ago estimate of 33.6 hours. Average hourly earnings at $28.81, not seasonally adjusted, were up $1.21, or 4.4%, from last November. The resulting average private sector weekly pay was calculated at $985.30, up $57.94, or 6.2% over the year. All employee private sector wage estimates have been out-pacing inflation the last two months and may be another sign of an improved labor market. The year-to-year change in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U, U.S. City Average, not seasonally adjusted) in November 2014 was 1.3%. Information for the manufacturing production workweek and earnings can be found in the table section of this release under the “Hours and Earnings” data category.
