In addition to the current PDF Files, historical occupational wage and employment estimates are provided below. Excel spreadsheets that resemble the PDF wage tables can be found for the years 2017-2023, for the Statewide, Substate, and Counties areas.

These are non-aged estimates and therefore do not exactly mirror previously published estimates. Spreadsheets are usually preferred by researchers who would like to reformat the data for their own uses.

Specific years and areas before 2017 in Excel are available by request.  Send email requests to elmi@nhes.nh.gov.

The Economic and Labor Market Information Bureau's Occupational Employment & Wage Statistics (OEWS) program, in cooperation with the United States Department of Labor, conducts a semi-annual mail and telephone survey of non-farm employers to produce estimates of occupational employment and wages.

The wage data published on this site are possible due to the thousands of Granite State employers who participated in this process. We thank them for their assistance.
