Covered Employment & Wages (QCEW)

Employment and wage data by industry for workers covered by unemployment insurance for New Hampshire, counties, labor market areas, and cities and towns. Annual employment and wage data for High Tech industries and Firms by Size are also available. This data is based on Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program files extracted from Quarterly Employer Tax and Wage reports.

Please note: The U.S Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has updated statistical area delineations using total population estimates from the 2010 U.S. Decennial Census supplemented with commuting pattern data from the American Community Survey. The updated delineation of areas will replace those established based on the 2000 Decennial Census, which have been in use since 2003.

As a result of this change in statistical area delineation, the geographic definition of labor market areas in New Hampshire have changed, and there will be a data series break. Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) data compiled for the previous statistical area delineation will no longer be available on this site. These data are not comparable to data compiled using the new area delineations.

Data compiled using the new delineation will be published beginning with the third quarter of 2014.

Historical QCEW data for New Hampshire, the counties, and cities and towns are unaffected.

Annual Averages: 2014

Quarterly Data: Third Quarter 2015
