Current Employment Statistics (CES-790)

Current Employment Statistics (CES) data represent monthly estimates of employment, by industry for the Commonwealth and for seven Metropolitan New England City and Town Statistical Areas (NECTA). The Boston-Cambridge-Nashua MA-NH Metropolitan NECTA includes nine NECTA Divisions in which employment estimates are produced for Massachusetts. Statewide hours and earnings data are published for selected industries within the manufacturing super sector.

NOTE TO DATA USERS; as of March 8, 2024: Statewide employment estimates have been revised to reflect annual benchmark revisions and seasonal adjustments for 2019 to 2023. BLS now uses concurrent seasonal adjustment for the seasonally adjusted data series.

As of March 8, 2024 New England City and Town Area estimates have been revised back to 2021. Seasonally adjusted total jobs data for selected areas are available
