About the QCEW Data

Data Source

The Indiana Business Research Center at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business aggregates the unit-level records collected by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development.

Disclosure

Disclosure rules are applied to these data. Data groupings that contain fewer than three unemployment insurance accounts are confidential and must be withheld. If there are three or more UI accounts, the data are withheld if one account comprises 80 percent of the group employment. And the value of withheld data may be be discernible through simple calculations of other released data (known generally as the secondary disclosure rule).

NAICS-Specific

Variables

Establishments, employment, and covered payroll with average weekly wage by sector, at the 3-digit NAICS level.

Important Data Notes

The establishment counts on STATS Indiana will be lower than the counts of the QCEW program of the Bureau of Labor Statistics because  establishments that report zero employment and wages for the quarter are not included in the STATS Indiana data set.

SIC-Specific

Variables

Establishments, employment, and covered payroll with average weekly wage by sector, at the 2-digit SIC level.

Important Data Notes

The establishment counts on STATS Indiana should match the Bureau of Labor Statistics QCEW data because establishments that report zero employment and wages for the quarter are included in both data sets.
