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 Non-employer 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.

Occupational Data
Organizing regional employment information by occupation provides a workforce-oriented view of the regional
economy. EMSI’s occupation data are based on EMSI’s industry data and regional staffing patterns taken from
the Occupational Employment Statistics program (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). Wage information is partially
derived from the American Community Survey. The occupation-to-program (SOC-to-CIP) crosswalk is based on
one from the U.S. Department of Education, with customizations by EMSI.

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