The latest employment and wage data for Wyoming from the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) are now available from the Research & Planning (R&P) section of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services.
Average monthly employment, total wages, and average weekly wage estimates for second quarter 2016 are available at the county and industry level.
In 2015, Wyoming employers added an estimated 113,204 new hires: individuals who, during a particular quarter, started working for an employer he or she had not worked for since at least 1992, the first year for which R&P has wage records.
The New Hires Survey allows R&P to collect rich survey detail not previously available, such as occupation, rate of compensation, benefits, important job skills, employer satisfaction with a new hire’s skills, retention, and more. By linking New Hires Survey data to existing administrative databases, such as Unemployment Insurance Wage Records and Wyoming Department of Transportation driver’s license files, R&P is also able to identify new hires characteristics such as age and gender.
