 Current Employment Statistics (CES) more information
The Current Employment Statistics 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.

  Annual Worksites by Size Class (QCEW) Last Updated: May 27, 2011 
The Worksites by Size Class (QCEW) more information  is a count of firms, excluding government, that have only one location, plus a count of each location of firms that have operations in more than one location.
The sum of the substate areas is less than the statewide total because some multi-location firms and others that don't have a physical location are coded as statewide and therefore have no substate
area designation. Size class 1 includes firms that reported having no employees during the third month of the quarter. * Excludes Government
