R&P Discontinues Publication of Employment by Industry Data

Effective with the March 2011 figures, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics took over production of the state and metropolitan area (Laramie County and Natrona County) employment estimates. The Research & Planning (R&P) section of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services is no longer directly involved with development of the employment by industry numbers and thus R&P is unable to authoritatively explain or take responsibility for these estimates. Therefore, the employment by industry tables will no longer be published in Wyoming Labor Force Trends.

Complete employment data are available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics at http://stats.bls.gov/sae/ and total nonfarm employment for Wyoming, Laramie County, and Natrona County are now included in the Economic Indicators table.
