Methodological Notes: 

The Current Employment Statistics survey is a monthly survey of the payroll records of business establishments and government agencies. Because it collects data from establishments in the nonfarm sector, it excludes self-employment and all employment in the farm sector. Industries are classified according to the 2012 North American Industry Classification System.
