Current Employment Statistics (CES)

The Current Employment Statistics (CES) program publishes monthly nonagricultural wage and salary EMPLOYMENT, HOURS, AND EARNINGS estimates by industry, as reported by New Mexico employers via a business establishment survey. Data are published for statewide New Mexico and its four metropolitan areas (Albuquerque, Farmington, Las Cruces, and Santa Fe) at North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) industry supersectors. CES estimates are among the earliest economic data indicating current economic conditions and, due to this timeliness, are highly demanded and heavily used in the private and public sectors. Data are published monthly on the LASER website at https://jobs.state.nm.us/ces and with the monthly News Release and Labor Market Review. 

This information, along with data for other states and the nation, can be found on the Bureau of Labor Statistics website at http://www.bls.gov/sae/home.htm.

Business Employment Dynamics (BED)

The Business Employment Dynamics (BED) program measures GROSS JOB GAINS AND LOSSES at private businesses on a quarterly basis for statewide New Mexico. Data are published at the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) industry supersector level.

BED data measure the net change in employment at the establishment or firm level. These changes come about in one of four ways. A net increase in employment can come from either opening units or expanding units. A net decrease in employment can come from either closing units or contracting units. Gross job gains include the sum of all jobs added at either opening or expanding units. Gross job losses include the sum of all jobs lost in either closing or contracting units. The net change in employment is the difference between gross job gains and gross job losses.
