Data Sources and Calculations

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

Occupation Data
EMSI occupation employment data are based on final EMSI industry data and final EMSI staffing patterns. Wage
estimates are based on Occupational Employment Statistics (QCEW and Non-QCEW Employees classes of
worker) and the American Community Survey (Self-Employed and Extended Proprietors). Occupational wage
estimates also affected by county-level EMSI earnings by industry.

Institution Data
The institution data in this report is taken directly from the national IPEDS database published by the U.S.
Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics.

Completers Data
The completers data in this report is taken directly from the national IPEDS database published by the U.S.
Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics.

Staffing Patterns Data
The staffing pattern data in this report are compiled from several sources using a specialized process. For QCEW
and Non-QCEW Employees classes of worker, sources include Occupational Employment Statistics, the National
Industry-Occupation Employment Matrix, and the American Community Survey. For the Self-Employed and
Extended Proprietors classes of worker, the primary source is the American Community Survey, with a small
amount of information from Occupational Employment Statistics.

Industry Data
EMSI industry data have various sources depending on the class of worker. (1) For QCEW Employees, EMSI
primarily uses the QCEW (Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages), with supplemental estimates from
County Business Patterns and Current Employment Statistics. (2) Non-QCEW employees data are based on a
number of sources including QCEW, Current Employment Statistics, County Business Patterns, BEA State and
Local Personal Income reports, the National Industry-Occupation Employment Matrix (NIOEM), the American
Community Survey, and Railroad Retirement Board statistics. (3) Self-Employed and Extended Proprietor classes
of worker data are primarily based on the American Community Survey, Nonemployer Statistics, and BEA State
and Local Personal Income Reports. Projections for QCEW and Non-QCEW Employees are informed by NIOEM
and long-term industry projections published by individual states.
