and OES data; links to these industry profiles for each district are given below.
reports the average number of manufacturing jobs being recorded within a given state in any given year.
The second set of data--data on wages--also comes from the QCEW

Using data from the QCEW
, Figure 4 presents the national and California's manufacturing employment from 1990 to 2008.
For metro areas, they are a combination of the QCEW

Employment data under QCEW

A snapshot of the QCEW
is the starting point for building the CES March benchmark level.
