Data Sources and Calculations

Industry Data
In order to capture a complete picture of industry employment, EMSI basically combines covered employment
data from Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) produced by the Department of Labor with total
employment data in Regional Economic Information System (REIS) published by the Bureau of Economic
Analysis (BEA), augmented with County Business Patterns (CBP) and Nonemployer Statistics (NES) published
by the U.S. Census Bureau. Projections are based on the latest available EMSI industry data, 15-year past local
trends in each industry, growth rates in statewide and (where available) sub-state area industry projections
published by individual state agencies, and (in part) growth rates in national projections from the Bureau of Labor
Statistics.

State Data Sources
This report uses state data from the following agencies: Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development,
Bureau of Workforce Information.
